No Clean Singing premiere blistering track by American black/thrash metal band SARCOPTES

Here’s something fantastic for fans of metal music that sublimes the confines and specificity of genres. Top notch eccentricity plays a pivotal role in the upcoming ‘Plague Hymns’ EP by American black/thrash band Sarcoptes. Excellently paced and myriad in theme as well as composition, listeners are set for a blitzkrieg of emotions with this 18-minute thrash-laced black metal attack. No Clean Singing has premiered the La Moria Grandissima track from the EP, which you can check AT THIS LINK. The writer packs in some solid praise for the musicians while stating:

“The music’s atmosphere of head-spinning dementia is leavened with a panoply of sorcerous leads and the shine of supernatural, phosphorescent majesty. Extraordinary spells are being cast at the same time as the participants in this rite are being whipped into dervishes.”


– “Crushing musicianship and a flawless execution” – Natttskog (UK) 8/10

– “an offering that is going to keep my attention for much longer” – Headbanger Reviews (US)

 – “Black metal with a lot of power.” – Dioses del Metal (Spain )

– “another  great  sounding  recording.” – A Different Shade Of Black Metal

– “massive sound, with an underlying terror stitched throughout.” – The Metal Wanderlust (US)

– “breaks paradigms with its eccentricities” – Dargedik (Peru)

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.
