REPLICANT: Dissonant Death Metal Trio To Release Negative Life Full-Length This Spring; New Track Streaming At Decibel + Live Shows Announced


Set in a bleak atmosphere of filth, malaise, and decaying infrastructure, REPLICANT is a New Jersey trio intent on producing despotic, depraved and pummeling riffs — a grinding and grooving aural consequence of the industrial primordial swamp that defines their surroundings. Featuring current members of technical death metal band Dystrophy, REPLICANT is morbidly heavy, brutally extreme, and frighteningly dark. The band will unleash their Negative Life full-length this March. The ten-track follow-up to 2016’s critically-lauded Worthless Desires debut was engineered by guitarist Peter Lloyd at One Stone Recording and mastered by Alan Douches (Cannabis Corpse, Tombs, Converge, Revocation) at West West Side Music.

Negative Life will see release on CD via PRC Music and digitally by the band on March 23rd. In advance of its release, today Decibel Magazine spews forth a first taste of the record in the form of “Chaotic Neutral.”

“‘Chaotic Neutral’ is a compressed foray into the depravity of Negative Life, a microcosm of the album,” issues the band. “It’s maddening, dirty, and unsterilized. In essence, it’s about lacking purpose and indifferently seeking out base pleasures.”

Words from the already-converted:

“The focus on Worthless Desires is never on breaking the sound barrier through mind-numbing speeds, but rather is a creepy exercise in powerful soul draining murk that unfolds at a mainly mid-tempo rate. This is technical death metal attempting to merge the past and present together, and the end result is definitely worth your time.” – Metal Injection

“As a debut, [Worthless Desires] introduces us to REPLICANT‘s brand of dissonant death metal; the strong Gorguts influence does not detract anything from these newcomers. REPLICANT is definitely a band to watch for until we build off-world colonies in 2019.” – Toilet Ov Hell
