Cocyte Reveals “The Human Disease” Album Details

Death horde Cocyte turned heads with the “Suffocate Now” demo in 2011, quickly followed by the “New Breath” EP in 2012 and follow-up “Asylum” in 2013.

The Belgian crew is often cited as too death metal to be a deathcore but too deathcore to be death metal… but whatever the name, the end result is always the same: nothing short of devastation.

The band’s first full-length album “The Human Disease,” mixed by Christian Carvin and mastered by Alan Douches (Carnifex, Suicide Silence, Cannibal Corpse, Nile), will drop June 2nd and is now up for pre-order here.

Guitarist Jimmy Maes comments on the theme running throughout the album: “We were leaning towards the story of humankind, the spirit of man, behaviour, etc. and this album turned into an absolute statement of the situation on earth. ‘The Human Disease’ is what the man has in its core, a disease.

“During the album you can find a common thread, it’s a story following the life of a man who describes many sides of humanity such as the relation between God and himself, the impact of religions on earth, the mental problems and darkest behaviours such as sexual assault, destruction of the land and our own kind, war, consumer society… Finally the story turns to a more positive note as our man finds a refuge in his spirit because our world is no longer worth it, he builds a sanctuary where he is completely satisfied and full of joy.

“But he is human after all, and slowly starts to destroy his sancturary, like everyone else, he is infected by The Human Disease. This album is dark vision of the world but the conclusion is not a dead cause, we have hope in humanity, we can change, but it can’t be done alone, people must wake up and become better.”

4. Malevolent Urge
5. Hollow Cause
6. Mechanical Refuge
7. Behind The Mess Of The Soul
