Spearheaded by four New York death metal veterans – involved in venerable acts such as Skinless, Held Under, Armor Column, Dry Heave and Burial – the appealingly named Incontinence proudly reveal details for the release of debut album, “Prey For Us.”
Scheduled for release on May 15th, 2017 via Ultimate Massacre Productions, Incontinence came up with a record intent on bringing brutality to the metal-minded masses, within a package of strong tracks that hook the listener in and don’t let go.
As a taste of what’s the come, the band just unleashed a track from the album entitled “Cryptofascist” – check it out below.
“The biggest underlying theme of the album is being under control, losing control and misery in lower-to-middle-class America,” comments the band. “For example, ‘Capitalist Martyr’ deals with a lower-level employee of a large corporation being shamed and forced into working longer hours. ‘Phantom Heart,’ ‘The Outrage Machine’ and ‘Inner Psychopath (Believe the Lie)’ all tie into the theme of being under control, being manipulated and losing one’s mind.”
The band goes on to state, “Elsewhere, ‘Escape to the Slaughter’ is a song loosely about a real-life event in which a herd of bison escaped from a buffalo meat farm just south of the Capital Region. They eventually got cornered and slaughtered by marksmen. This was written from the perspective of the bison herd. ‘Cryptofascist’ is without question about the rise of Trumpism/nationalism in the USA, but you could also apply it to other parts of the globe, as nationalism has seemingly become trendy. The song was written in the middle of the ridiculous US presidential campaign, prior to the election, and was never meant to be a prophecy. Several of the songs on the album were written structurally in the vein of what Chuck Shuldinder did on the last four Death albums as well as on the ‘Control Denied’ album. Death was a big time influence on ‘Prey For Us.'”
