American black/thrash metal band SARCOPTES release scintillating NEW TRACK

Myriad as it may be, the human condition is entrenched with an unending flurry of major and minor setbacks, many of which influence art, and specifically music. With their upcoming Plague Hymns EP, American black metal band Sarcoptes draw a similar parallel- their EP being a prelude to a visceral second album is not very different from the many telling smaller signs that point to apocalyptic disaster. The band’s refreshing incorporation of thrash-y elements and synth bits makes this a ‘must-listen’ for lovers of extreme metal doused with eccentricity. You can check out the first track that’s on Bandcamp and YouTube

For fans of – Emperor, Sathanas, Nifelheim, Aura Noir, Destroyer 666, Immortal, Absu, Abbath, early SatyriconFollowing hard on the heels of the highly acclaimed debut full length album that showcased Sarcoptes‘ ingenuity of blending thrash and death metal influences effortlessly in an epic black metal template, on this new EP they take things up a notch and exhibit renewed passion and flair further cementing their unique yet highly enjoyable sound. The two songs here are terrific examples of brilliant songwriting that weaves together myriad elements without losing cohesion or continuity. The result is absolutely thrilling and rivetting; the songs don’t seem to overstay their welcome despite being long and continue their epic and intense onslaught without ever waning. This EP serves as a perfect precursor to the upcoming full length album that is in the works. If this is anything to go by, the future of US black metal is in safe hands.
