Goregrind unit GUINEAPIG are gearing up for the release of the band’s highly anticipated new album, which will be coming out on June 10th via Spikerot Records.
Eight long years after the debut “Bacteria”, the Italian trio delivers with “Parasite” an album that will redefine the very concept of Goregrind. The material is absolutely cutting-edge and forward-thinking without ever losing sight of the roots, the production is crisp and blistering, the songwriting fluctuates between abysmal tunings, Death Metal mid-tempos and ripping breakdowns.
After the release of the first two singles “Mermaid In A Manhole” and “Taxidermia”, the band follows up with a brand new music video for the track “City Of The Monkey God”.
Guitarist and vocalist Fra comments:
“CITY OF THE MONKEY GOD takes its name from a 16th century legend about a curse spreading disease in a lost city in Honduras. The mystery was solved only 500 years later, when a group of explorers got their faces disfigured due to a flesh-eating parasite.In opposite to the lyric, which explains what happened to the poor explorers, the video focuses more on the old legend, envisioning the whole story from God’s point of view. We, guineapig, have always wanted to be off the grid, breaking down schemes and clichés, both musically and aesthetically: CITY OF THE MONKEY GOD is a symbolic video about an ancient divinity, more precisely a Goddess in our interpretation, who’s conscious of her power but at the same time affected by it. What she created, her land, is what is soiling her state of purity.“
The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Marco Mastrobuono at Kick Recording Studio – Rome (Fleshgod Apocalypse, Hour Of Penance, Shores Of Null) in September/October 2021. Stunning artwork by Fabio Timpanaro.
