U.S. technical death metal crew Decrepit Birth has shared a playthrough video for the song “Hieroglyphic,” taken from new album “Axis Mundi,” out now via Agonia Records (Europe / ROW) and Nuclear Blast Records (North America).
“We’ve gone through an evolution throughout the years” says founding member and primary songwriter Matt Sotelo. “The last couple of albums we had, ‘Diminishing Between Worlds’ and ‘Polarity,’ were more progressive death metal. They were different from ‘…And Time Begins,’ which is a different genre of death metal. It’s more brutal.
“I’m the type of guy who likes to experiment. ‘…And Time Begins’ has no solos. It’s all really fast palm-muted riffs. The other albums breathed more with the guitars. I let chords ring out on ‘Diminishing Between Worlds’ and ‘Polarity.’ ‘Axis Mundi’ is combination of all the stuff I’m into. I like it a lot right now. It’s more melodic. The riffs repeat intentionally. I want to have fun with these songs”.
