Maltese brutal death metal act Beheaded premiered a video clip for the new song “Beast Incarnate” over at Decibel Magazine’s website at this location (also in the player below). The song is the title track from the upcoming new album which is expected for release via Unique Leader on January 27th.
The infernal, eight-track production draws upon the brutal and melodic approach to the band’s 2012-issued, critically-championed “Never To Dawn” long player. Recorded at MKII Recording Studio (Italy) and mixed and mastered by Ronnie Björnström (Teadeat, Bone Gnawer, Aeon, Those Who Bring The Torture etc.) at Enhanced Audio Productions Sweden, “Beast Incarnate” comes shrouded in the cover art of Gabriel Alegria Sabogal, welcomes the addition of new recruits — drummer Davide Billia and guitarist Simone Brigo – and truly stretches the boundaries of Beheaded’s signature sound to meet new extremes.
As a precursor to its release, the visual companion to the record’s title track is available now. The band commented: “When music is enriched with literature, imagery, colors, and visuals that reflect its essence, it is able to deliver a deeper, more profound immersive visual and aural experience. That is precisely what the video for the album title track ‘Beast Incarnate’ does. Using all these elements we have worked very closely with Very Metal Art in graphically creating and capturing the character and lifeblood of Beast Incarnate. The music video comes to outline the attributes of Mediterranean death metal – hard hitting and drilling in the psyche. Musically drawing upon the very roots of the band’s earliest material and molded from a quarter of a century since Beheaded’s inception. Beast Incarnate cements twenty-five years of extreme music with an imprint of the band’s present signature sound.”
