Kick your Thursday afternoon in the teeth with the rabid new lyric video for “The Alonest Of The Alone” from Italian technical death metal demolition team, HIDEOUS DIVINITY.
The pitiless new number comes by way of the band’s hemorrhage-inducing forthcoming full-length, Cobra Verde, set for ignition next month via Unique Leader Records. Based around Werner Herzog’s 1987 film of the same name and crowned, “an uber-brutal, churning platter of tech-y death metal” by Decibel Magazine, Cobra Verde was recorded at 16th Cellar Studios (Hour Of Penance, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Vomit The Soul) and flaunts nine tracks of meticulously executed brutality including a searing rendition of Ripping Corpse’s “The Last And Only Son.” Doused in a near-intoxicating air of hate and discontent, Cobra Verde is a true must-have for devout followers of obscure and intense death metal a la Nile and Immolation with the lysergic influences of Ulcerate.
Latest teaser track, “The Alonest Of The Alone” features a guest vocal appearances by Nile’s Dallas Toler-Wade who comments, “It was awesome to get a chance to do some guest vocals on the record. HIDEOUS DIVINITY is one of the most brutal bands out right now, and it’s an honor to be part of that brutality.”

HIDEOUS DIVINITY features within their ranks former members of Hour Of Penance and Ghouls. Born between Italy and Norway in late 2006 as a side project of Hour Of Penance founder Enrico Schettino, HIDEOUS DIVINITY immediately earned underground accolades thanks to their mauling 2007 Sinful Star Necrolatry two-track demo. It wasn’t until 2010 however that the band, with their first stable lineup, would perform live alongside longstanding comrades, Insision. In the interim, new songs were composed with their European death/black influences giving way to a more mindful, complex yet straight-in-your-face death metal assault in the vein Nile, Immolation and Hate: the embryo of their first full-length release. Following another successful appearance in Scandinavia at the end of April 2012, this time for the prestigious Inferno Festival in Oslo, Norway, a three-album deal with Unique Leader Records was forged. In late July 2011 the band entered 16th Cellar to record their Obeisance Rising debut. The lyrical concept is based on John Carpenter’s immortal masterstroke They Live, a dramatically relevant testimony of a dark era that never ended.
Cobra Verde will be released in the US on October 28th, 2014, the UK on October 27th and the rest of Europe on October 31st. Preorder your copy at THIS LOCATION.
