No Clean Singing is hosting an exclusive stream of “Aegis,” the new single from Polish death metal quartet CINIS. The track is the latest warning shot from the band’s impending third album, Lies That Comfort Me, nearing release later this month through Selfmadegod Records.
Based in Bialystok, Poland, CINIS was formed in 2003 by Robert Danielski and Lech Szuszkiewicz, recording their Vile Angel demo at Bloodline Studio in 2005. At the end of 2007, the band recorded its first full-length album, The Last Days of Ouroborus, at Hertz Studio and released it through the label Old Temple. 2014 saw the band return to Hertz for the recording of their second album, Subterranean Antiquity, which also saw release via Old Temple.
In 2022, nearly twenty years into their craft, CINIS signed with Selfmadegod Records for the release of their newly completed third album, Lies That Comfort Me, delivering nine pummeling tracks of tumultuous death metal with massive homage paid to Florida legends and forerunners of the genre, Morbid Angel, Deicide, and Cannibal Corpse, as well as more technical influence from countrymates Vader and Decapitated. Lies That Comfort Me was recorded between October 2021 and March 2020, engineered by Lukasz Bielemuk, then mixed and mastered at Hertz Studio (Behemoth, Vader, Trauma, Decapitated). The album is completed with artwork and layout by Tomasz “Hal” Halicki (Vader, Dead Infection) and photography by Ewa Bielemuk.
With the “Aegis” single, CINIS’ lyricist Michał Pawłowski writes, “A toxic relationship – one side is always right. He/She expects respect in return for… resigning from your independence, your whole life. A relationship with a psychopath who takes everything from you – a relationship that cannot be escaped.”
The detailed review accompanying No Clean Singing’s premiere reads in part, “In the music itself, the song is a fast-paced but jolting barrage of maniacally slugging riffs, hyper-speed drum blasting, and bestial, belly-deep growls. Sounds of sadistic viciousness also well up in hornet-swarm chords, and delirium reigns in outbursts of squirming and darting fretwork, capped by a sinister, slithering solo.”
