California’s Thanatopsis are releasing the new single “Consequence”, off the upcoming debut album “Initiation” due out October 23, 2020 via Extreme Metal Music.
The band comments about the song: “‘Consequence’ is one of the newer songs that was written for the Initiation album. ‘Consequence’ is basically about the uprising of the common man against population control perpetuated by the ruling class, and the subsequent formation of underground resistance. The epic nature, aggressiveness, and twists in this song make for a listening experience that we believe will resonate with our audience.”
After a hiatus, 3/4 of the band has reunited along with the new addition of drummer Jason Borton (Jungle Rot, Arkaik) to offer their debut full-length, which features past recordings that are given a second life and a chance to be heard by a broader audience along with new unheard material. The album was recorded at Trident Studios with renowned producer Juan Urteaga (Exodus, Testament, Machine Head).
The overall album experience shares eight old school thrash/death metal influenced tracks that are an emotionally twisted ride of violently catchy brutality. With themes that include corruption, occultism, murder, revolt, and loss of faith, Thanatopsis delivers an album that keeps the listener engaged from start to finish, with a sound unlike any other.
