STREAM: Construct of Lethe – “The Grand Machination”

Check out this premier of off-kilter death metal from Construct of Lethe.

Coming strong off their debut LP Corpsegod released at the dawn of this year, Construct of Lethe are back with The Grand Machination EP. This record explores the literary territory Mark Twain explored in “Letters from the Earth”, the posthumously published collection of letters that explored Satan’s fall from grace.

“The Grand Machination” leads off with a slow, almost triumphant pace before lurching forward into angular riffs that immediately recall Formulas Fatal to the Flesh-era Morbid Angel. Driven by the pounding drum work of Kevin Talley, who you may recall as the skinsman for Dying Fetus, Misery Index and a billion other great bands, Construct of Lethe maintains an impeccable death metal pedigree. It’s a churning, yet razor-sharp track that’s sure to thrill death metal aficionados.

The Grand Machination is out October 7th. Pre-order it for just a few bucks over at Bandcamp. Follow Construct of Lethe on Facebook and tell ’em “Howdy”.

    True story circa early 2000s. Kevin Talley was going to be kicked out of Dying Fetus. My buddy went to a show to see them and Kevin was trying to get my friend to ask the band why he was being kicked out.

    • Did he ever find out? Don’t leave us hanging, bruh.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Don’t remember as it was like 16 years ago. Sorry bro.

    • Wow.

    Seriously, though, this is good stuff right in line with my current listening mood. I might just add it to my wishlist while I contemplate the preorder.

        Is that Danger 5? I love that show!

      • Óðinn

        Is that anything like the tilted kilt?

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          They’re opening one of those near me. I won’t go to it because those kind of restaurants don’t care if you’re a good employee. They just want to hire attractive people.

          • Óðinn

            That’s okay. I’ll go enough for the both of us, JJD. 😉

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I don’t either. I just don’t like those sorts of restaurants as they usually don’t treat their employees right.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            what is the point of being an ugly waitress

          • Janitor Jim Duggan


          • {SMH}
            if an unattractive person was refused employment because he/she was unattractive, can you imagine the lawsuit?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            It’s happened before.

          • it would be their loss, bro. customers wouldn’t be able to receive a free Dad Rock Lesson™ with every meal
