The plague that has infected this planet for seemingly endless months may have extended the incubation period for INTRICATED’s new album, but at long last the monstrosity is ready to hatch. A true onslaught of unbridled ferocity, chaos made manifest and death metal delivered as only Intricated can, Apocalyptic Metamorphosis will wipe away the memories of a troubled year…and replace them with an array of unforgettable horrors!
Their debut album, The Vortex Of Fatal Depravity, which emerged some five years ago now, gave an insight into the potency of Intricated’s wicked alchemical blend of unfathomable song craft and sheer brute force. Now, with Apocalyptic Metamorphosis, every death-scented, rotten flower has bloomed and the true reality warping power of Intricated has been revealed. These songs twist themselves through impossible grotesque contortions, shifting state from the thick fluidity of blood to the darting, jagged thrusts of broken bone. A sense of threat and menace hangs heavy between the thunderous riffs and one wrong step will leave the listener lost in a labyrinth of terror. Ten intimidating tracks delivered with merciless intent – Apocalyptic Metamorphosis is an assault on the very pinnacle of the brutal death metal genre.
No band of such accomplished brutality could escape the all-seeing gaze of Comatose Music and Intricated have joined the ever growing ranks of death. With Apocalyptic Metamorphosis swathed in the artwork of Toshihiro Egawa (Abigail Williams, Defeated Sanity, Krisiun etc) and blessed with the immaculate mastering of Alan Douches (Atheist, Cannibal Corpse, Death etc), all the pieces of the puzzle are in place. On December 10th the beast is unleashed, straight from the sin swamped streets of Bangkok to the frenzied furnace of your nightmares – Intricated are coming for you!
