The punishing first single from long-running Italian act, CRIPPLE BASTARDS‘ impending Nero In Metastasi LP has been released as the new album nears release mid-February. Crumbling everything with a nearly three-minute bombast of blasting, unrepentant, societal disdain, the album-opening “Malato Terminale” immediately lets the band’s devoted following know they’re in for an ultra-metallic neckbreaker of expected chaos, and lets newcomers know to join their movement or get out of the way.
Unload “Malato Terminale” now AT THIS LOCATION.
Also hear the track alongside the album’s “Senza Impronte,” a song previously released via the band’s 2012 7″ EP of the same name, playing HERE.
Prepare for widespread CRIPPLE BASTARDS tour actions in the coming months, including the band’s return to the US on a full tour surrounding their performance at Maryland Deathfest 2014 and more.
Two and-a-half decades after their conception, CRIPPLE BASTARDS reign as Italy’s most hostile and aggressive musical unit in existence, and are ready to prove it all over again with their newly completed debut LP for Relapse, the monstrous Nero In Metastasi. Packing some of their most dense and metallic destruction into eighteen new tracks harnessed under the thirty-seven minute mark, the album was recorded at the infamous Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordström (Arch Enemy, At The Gates, Dark Tranquillity). While retaining the riotous old-school hatecore attributes they’ve carried forth since formation, yet elevating their delivery to put them on par with the most cutting-edge bands in the grindcore genre, Nero In Metastasi is the next major movement in CRIPPLE BASTARDS‘ steadfast campaign of extreme auditory revolution.
Nero In Metastasi will see release on CD, LP and digital formats via Relapse in North America on February 18th, preceded by a February 14th street date in Germany/Benelux, and February 17th in the UK. Preorders can be placed HERE.
