Psychedelic death/black metal band PLASMODIUM unearth new song via Moshpit Nation

Australian black/death metal band Plasmodium are turning the subgenre on its head by adding psychedelic and atmospheric elements to their uncompromising music and the result is astounding. It’s a very tangible, physical version of a drug trip gone bad and there are consciousness-altering repercussions. Listen to the extremely intense album opener premiered by Moshpit Nation HERE. Excerpt – 

“the band puts their own spin on the aggressive dissonant void that has been the territory of bands such as Portal and Ulcerate. It’s highly recommended that the listener wear a neck brace while listening, in order to protect against the sudden turns the band takes”


– “this is by far the best album of 2021 so far” – The Metal Wanderlust (Australia) 5/5

– “This is the zenith of potent and dissonant Black / Death Metal” – Nattskog (UK) 8/10

– “the definition of all-consuming” – Headbanger Reviews (US)

– “it will change you” – Moshpit Nation (US)

– “Adventurous fans of the dissonant end of black/death will find much to enjoy here” – The Metal Observer (Canada)

– “great” – Occult Black Metal (US)

– “definitely one worth checking out” – Metal Temple (Greece)

Australian band Plasmodium shocked listeners with their astounding debut that was an incredible expression of spacey, convoluted black/death metal like no other. For their sophomore album, they’ve harnessed the same ideals and embraced atmospheric elements into their decidedly free-flowing, organic-sounding and tangibly terrifying music to lend to it an otherworldly air – at any given point of time there’s a sense of looming dread and impending cacophony. This is certainly not meant for the more conventional or easy listening metal fans because the music can reach a crescendo of morbid proportions, but for the fans of the extreme, there is nothing better than a pure cathartic release, one that is visceral and palpable. The atmospheric parts appearing after the mind-numbing rampage feel like a dimension-transcending breakthrough of some kind in an intense and demanding psychedelic trip. No one will emerge unscathed from this experience.
