For when you need your death metal to be brutal and also extremely weird.
Disease Swept the Cosmos, the debut LP from one man death metal project Hate Inclination, is a deeply strange record. Combing the murky depths of brutal death metal alongside math-y avant garde sounds, Caleb Liles has delivered a seven track record that sounds unlike anything else I’ve heard this year.
Started in 2013, Hate Inclination released and later rerecorded a four-song demo before taking a multi-year break to hone his skills to record this album. Brutal and technical with a touch of melancholy melody, Hate Inclination’s “Subterranean Cosmic Abomination” is a savage taste of Disease Swept the Cosmos, and I’m stoked to premiere it here today. Listen as Caleb’s voice varies from a low, vomiting gurgle to a high, brittle rasp while the guitars groove and slam their way into a math-y shudder. Check it out below and pick up Disease Swept the Cosmos on Friday.
ALSO, we need to talk about how fucking great that artwork by Kirill Semenov is. A++++++
