Rising Portuguese tech-death band THE VOYNICH CODE have released a new single and video ahead of their debut full-length Aqua Vitae, coming May 5th, via Primordial Records.
The third song to be released from Aqua Vitae, ‘Born to Suffer’ is a vicious track, combining the best elements of technical metal and deathcore.
Pre-orders for the album are available at: http://smarturl.it/TVCAquaVitae
Watch the previous single, featuring Jake Luhrs of August Burns Red:
Named after the mysterious Voynich Manuscript, Portugal’s exponents of progressive technicality are a band starting to attract attention. Following the success of debut EP Ignotum, THE VOYNICH CODE are turning away from deathcore towards a more classic death metal sound.

Following an appearance at UK Tech-Metal Fest 2015, a home tour with Being As An Ocean, shows with Betraying the Martyrs, Desolated, and over 300,000 views on previous lead single, ‘Antithesis’, the future is exciting for Portugal’s hottest new exports.
