Almost two years after the successful and critically debut EP, Voices, that took the underground scene by storm with its relentless blend of high-adrenaline Death Metal and groovy mid-tempo elements, Belgium’s Deathrashers SCHIZOPHRENIA are gearing up for the release of the band’s highly anticipated debut album. Set for release on February 17th and with nine brand new tracks spanning over 43 minutes, “Recollections Of The Insane” picks up where its predecessor left off, with going even further in every aspect.
Coming in the wake of the release of the album’s first single “Cranial Disintegration” (listen HERE), the four-piece now unleashed the second track “Sea Of Sorrow”, which is “a track that is a little bit of everything” as guitarist Romeo Promos Promopoulos states.”It grabs you by the throat and keeps squeezing every bit of air out. Taking you thru a journey about the darkest place a person can lose itself in. In the writing process we wanted to accomplish a merciless track that’s perfectly balanced with melodies and crazy tempo changes to really accentuate the feeling and emotion of it all. This is definitely one of my personal favourites from the album“.
Guitarist Marty Van Kerckhoven continues:”Raging at 230 beats per minute, Sea Of Sorrow is definitely one of the fastest, most brutal songs on the record. A long, complex composition process that merged elements of death metal, thrash metal and even incorporated oriental scales yielded a unique, heavy and progressive song. Rapid riffs paired with the slower, rhythmic middle section resulted in a composition that tells a story which provides a dismal, enigmatic atmosphere. I particularly enjoyed pushing our boundaries and challenging our compositional creativity along with creating compelling melodies for the lead sections.“
