“…a muscular death-metal outfit that leans on dissonance for their brand of steamrolling hate.” — Revolver
Stream REPLICANT’s “Oceans Of Dust” at Revolver at THIS LOCATION.
Negative Life is the impending new studio offering from dissonant death metal unit, REPLICANT. Set in a bleak atmosphere of filth, malaise, and decaying infrastructure, the New Jersey-based trio deliver despotic, depraveds 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 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.
As a precursor to its official unveiling, Revolver is hosting an exclusive premiere of “Oceans Of Dust,” issuing of the mutinous track, “If you’ve never seen Blade Runner (or it’s follow-up, 2049), let us catch you up: a replicant is a bioengineered clone of a human, devoid of emotion, mechanical, with superhuman strength and deep longing to feel anything at all. Those descriptions (except for the superhuman strength bit), all apply to New Jersey’s REPLICANT – a muscular death-metal outfit that leans on dissonance for their brand of steamrolling hate.”
Adds the band of the track: “‘Oceans Of Dust’ is about the inevitable doom of all things. We are born afflicted with an ephemeral existence in a painful realm, programmed to expire. The dust in the hourglass is dwindling and we’re waiting for the cosmic punchline to our lives, but there isn’t one.”
