CORDYCEPS premiere new single ‘Maelstrom of Hypocrisy’ with Metal Injection

Las Vegas, Nv brutal death metal masters CORDYCEPS have premiered a new song for their crushing new track “Maelstrom Of Hypocrisy” which features Mitch Harris of NAPALM DEATH today with Metal Injection! The song is from the groups vicious forthcoming debut full length Betrayal, which will see an April 10th release date via Unique Leader.  

The band commented, “‘Maelstrom of Hypocrisy’ is a song that represents confronting the people in our lives that are deceptive and who wish us harm emotionally or physically. Musically the track was inspired by bands like Suffocation, Dying Fetus and Cerebral Incubation and it was written in a state of despair and frustration. This is a song about not giving up and what you can achieve when you are confronted with adversity”

Called “the new sound of terror” and “one of brutal death’s most exciting new forces” by Black Dahlia Murder vocalist Trevor Strnad in his Obituarist column, CORDYCEPS have upped the devastating slamming heaviness and masterful technicality with their new effort. The 10 track album was recorded by Kirk Moll at The Alamo Recording Studio in Las Vegas, Nv as well as Ryan Wechta at Alchemy Lab Studio. Betrayal was mastered by Troy McCosker (Ne Obliviscaris) with artwork being provided by Santiago Francisco Jaramillo.

Formed in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2014 with a vision of pure death metal extremity, CORDYCEPS spent their first two years in existence perfecting their sound with the long hours of writing and methodical practice honing the group into a mature, cohesive unit before they entered the national stage. Their patience yielded the group’s debut EP Black Blood Butchery – an unmercifully devastating and relentlessly technical slab of audible violence, which was released on New Standard Elite Records in 2017.

The EP quickly garnered attention with Black Dahlia Murder vocalist Trevor Strnad writing in his Obituarist column “Black Blood Butchery is a veritable festival of blazing technicality and musical prowess. This is thinking man’s brutal death metal in every way.” With momentum quickly building CORDYCEPS embarked on a busy touring schedule which saw them perform at Chicago Domination Fest, Los Angeles Extinction Fest, Violent and Defiant Fest, and a successful tour alongside Cerebral Incubation.

The group caught the attention of Unique Leader in 2018 and began working on their debut full length. After a line-up change and long, emotionally intense writing process the group is ready to unleash their finest work yet: Betrayal. The album is a jaw dropping, vicious, and honest work that the group described as “the representation of the place the mind can go when confronted with the challenges of depression and anger” and will be unleashed on April 10th. With BetrayalCORDYCEPS have elevated themselves into the pantheon of brutal death metal.
