New York City-based technical metal duo, BANGLADEAFY, has just issued the first single from their impending Narcopaloma EP, with a premiere of the churning “Termites,” delivered exclusively through Metal Injection.
Narcopaloma crams seven new tunes into a white-knuckled fifteen-minute ride through Weirdo City, delivering BANGLADEAFY’s manic, tech-mangled, bass and drum-driven attack with even more brain-warping arrangements than before. Progressive fusion meets cyber annihilation in brutalizing grooves that take the listener by the throat and drag one through a psychotic 8-bit video game holocaust.
The first single from Narcopaloma comes writhing forth through an exclusive debut at Metal Injection, the write-up stating of the track, “’Termites’ bends and twists endlessly though cluttered hallways of riffs and insane passages that just might make you pause the track to get off your ass and practice. Seriously, this sounds like four dudes trying to keep up with one another… not two dudes crushing it. Observe!”

The origin of the BANGLADEAFY moniker fuses the Bangladeshi descent of drummer Atif Haq with the physical hearing impairment of bassist/pianist/vocalist Jon Ehlers, as he along with two sisters were been born with sensorineural hearing loss. The duo interlopes endless runs and rhythms with intense time changes and otherworldly texture with utter seamlessness. Closing a three-year gap since The Briefcase EP left jaws swinging, the duo slams back onto the grid with Narcopaloma. The record is drenched in the synth elements that have permeated the outfit’s prior works, including segues bridging each track, and while BANGLADEAFY songs are largely instrumental already, Narcopaloma is virtually void of any vocals. Narcopaloma was engineered and mixed by Jonathan Vergara at Pancake Studios, with Atif Haq’s drums having been recorded by Mike Gatto, and all bass, samplers, and keys tracked by the band’s Jon Ehlers.
BANGLADEAFY is also already currently immersed in the writing process for their next release. Steady updates are to be expected throughout the year.
