BrooklynVegan is currently hosting the premiere of “Vision Loser” from Vancouver, British Columbia-based progressive death metal collective NECK OF THE WOODS. The track comes by way of the band’s imminent new full-length, The Annex Of Ire, set to drop March 20th via their new label home of Pelagic Records.
Captured by producer/engineer Jesse Gander (Japandroids, White Lung, Brutus, etc.) at Rain City Recorders in Vancouver, the relentless seven track offering capitalizes on NECK OF THE WOODS‘ already ravaging recipe of rabid, methodical, and absorbing extreme/death-tinged metal.
Issues the band of the latest sampling of the record, “An absolute ripper of a tune, ‘Vision Loser’ highlights the influences of our recent ex-bass player turned full-time guitarist, Ron Holloway. With the usual NECK OF THE WOODS crew in his corner, the songs really push the envelope of the modern metal sound. Lyrically focused on understanding, processing, and overcoming anger, this song comes in hot on all fronts.”
Adds BrooklynVegan, “it kinda sounds like if you took the proggy post-metal of Pelagic’s flagship band The Ocean and injected it with the death-y metalcore of prime-era BTBAM.”
