Today, Decibel Magazine offers up the first helping of Totalitarian Dystopia, the forthcoming full-length debut from London death bringers, ACRANIA, with the official lyric video for “Festering With Dishonesty.”
Recorded with Stu McKay at Studio 6 in London with mixing/mastering by Chris Foster, Totalitarian Dystopia hurls forth a thirty-six minute maelstrom of audio wreckage through ten tales dissecting the impending fall of mankind. The record includes guest appearances from Tom Barber of Lorna Shore, Mendel of Aborted and Jamie Hanks of I Declare War, and promises to engulf an entire new legion of modern death fanatics worldwide.
Elaborates Decibel, “Thanks to ACRANIA, the world shall soon no longer need wonder what it would sound like if George Orwell served as spiritual advisor to a uber-brutal modern death metal band – these London slammers’ kinetic, oppressive, appropriately-titled debut full-length Totalitarian Dystopia will answer that question in fairly definitive fashion at the end of next month.”
Infestation is imminent with “Festering With Dishonesty,” now playing at THIS LOCATION.
The politically charged ACRANIA – a rare congenital disorder that occurs in the human fetus in which the flat bones in the cranial vault are either partially or completely absent — has spread their message through several independent recordings since their 2012 inception. Their debut split with Blue Waffle and “A Trophy Of Corporate Disfigurement” single, both released in their first year as a band, followed by their The Beginning Of The End EP released last year have helped the band forge a devout fanbase of pit-seeking followers. Having already toured with various acts around Europe including Cerebral Bore and Warpath, and with upcoming shows booked alongside Thy Art Is Murder, Blood Red Throne and many more, ACRANIA will continue to scoff their way through the scene and proliferate their message of maximized hostility through their blistering fusion of brutality, slams and blastbeats.
Totalitarian Dystopia will be released on August 19th, 2014 via Unique Leader Records. Preorder bundles will be available later this week.
