This week on Instagram, deathcore outfit SPITE claimed “ALBUM ANNOUNCEMENT THIS WEEK“. We felt that. So far we have heard a couple of wild tracks from the Rise Records band, including ‘Made To Please‘ and ‘Caved In‘ – both we can confidently say blew our socks off.
New drummer Josh ‘Baby J’ Miller who recently left Emmure and joined SPITE (read about it here) has a pretty stacked month/year alongside his Darko (US) duties, with new song ‘Ana‘ expected next week. But today is all about SPITE‘s album announcement.
Ok, enough fluffing around, here’s what you’ve all been waiting for. SPITE will release their fourth studio record Dedication To Flesh on July 22 via Rise Records. The album is a follow-up to their 2019 release The Root of All Evil. If this news isn’t exciting enough, SPITE has shared the second-last track of the album, ‘Hangman‘.
SPITE‘s new one starts with the same anxiety as ‘Made To Please‘ and ‘Caved In‘ with screeching riffs and bellowing breakdowns in the opening minute. Vocalist Darius Tehrani delivers a refined unclean vocal belch, with Miller slamming the drums in all the right places of the song. SPITE creates this heavy ambience through the way they so intentionally transition between sections and rapidly change the mood as required. With mathcore chaos towards the end, ‘Hangman‘ will end before you were ready for it to.
