ALTERBEAST Premiere New Song "The Maggots Ascension"
January 19, 2018, a year ago
Sacramento based tech death shredders Alterbeast have released another track off of their forthcoming sophomore album Feast. The song, entitled "The Maggots Ascension", showcases both the band's technical prowess and melodic sensibilities with incredible performances from guitarist Andrew Lamb, vocalist Michael Alvarez, and drummer Alex Bent (also of Trivium).
Guitarist and Alterbeast founding member Andrew Lamb said, "We are stoked to give you another advance track from Feast! "The Maggots Ascension" is a part two to the song "Throne Of Maggots" from our first record Immortal. Lyrics cover the maggots' metamorphosis into flies and from slave to reign. Music is in the same vein as ToM: Fucking. Brutal. We hope you dig it and can't wait for you to hear everything else we did on Feast!"
Feast was recorded by Zach Ohren (Immolation, Carnifex) at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA and mastered by John Scrip at Massive Mastering. Cover art by Megan Mushi.
