The Beast of Nod comments
“Multiversal tells the story, from start to finish, of the culmination of an ancient conflict into an all-out intergalactic war that results in the death of the universe and the birth of a multiverse. While ancient enemies are wiped from existence, new foes quickly step forward to enact their evil plans. The stalwart Guardians of the Multiverse find no rest in their new home and must set out to engage the hitherto latent threat. To tell this epic tale, The Beast of Nod has teamed up with an array of guest artists including Joe Satriani, Michael Angelo Batio, Marco Pitruzzella, and members of Equipoise, Wormhole, Bleak Flesh, and Abiotic.”
About The Release/About The Band
The universe’s favorite “intergalactic death metal” entity The Beast of Nod is back with another sci-fi odyssey steeped in tongue-in-cheek absurdity entitled Multiversal. Multiversal is set for release on Earth and other worlds on March 29th.
Active since 2015, the (now relocated to) San Francisco Bay Area, California-based technical/progressive death metal project has released two EP’s, a full-length, one compilation release, and a collaborative chiptunes release prior to the upcoming release of Multiversal. The Beast of Nod came out of nowhere and blew the whole world away upon the release of Vampira: Disciple of Chaos in May of 2018. Achieving a level of newfound praise, a massively growing fanbase, and amazing coverage and reviews worldwide on a scale that doesn’t happen all that often for a purely independent group based just on the merits of the music alone.
Now in 2021, The Beast of Nod takes a galactic leap forward for humankind and non-humankind alike with the impending launch of Multiversal. Never one to be lacking in ambition, the album furthers the intense storytelling lore behind the band’s fictional “The Land of Nod” sci-fi universe while expanding the full scope of what Multiversal has to offer with ambitious release plan ideas that will extend far beyond its initial release date. As usual, the group offers up an intense take on progressive/technical death metal with a strong emphasis on massive grooves and catchy melodies.
Jaw-dropping guest spots from musicians such as Joe Satriani, Michael Angelo Batio, Abiotic guitarist John Matos, Wormhole guitarist Sanjay Kumar, Equipoise guitarist Nick Padovani, and Bleak Flesh guitarist Matias Quiroz are simply icing on the cake of an album overloaded in talent as is by the group’s core members.
The Beast of Nod – Multiversal is strongly recommended for fans of Dethklok, Gojira, Slugdge, Inferi, Rings of Saturn, Abiotic, The Faceless, Marvel Comics & DC Comics, Physics, Astronomy, and Natural History.
