With powerful riffs in an old school death metal and groovy cocktail, Danish death-metallers SHADOWSPAWN are back today with their third release, “The Biology of Disbelief”.
Since the release of the former album “Hope Lies Dormant”, Shadowspawn has worked tirelessly to bring more depth, more dynamics, more groove, and even more aggression into their sound. “The Biology of Disbelief” consists of ten groovy death metal tracks, set in an abstract lyrical world of steampunk and religious criticism. A story told in abstract yet precise and critical terms, concerning religion, misinformation, and disbelief.
“The Biology Of Disbelief” is out today in digital, CD, and LP by Emanzipation Productions. It can be ordered at this link.
The drums are recorded and produced by Tue Madsen at renowned Antfarm Studios. Otherwise mixed and produced by the band itself. Recorded during the fall of 2020 at both Antfarm and our own studio. Tue Madsen ponders about the sound of the youngsters: “Good quality old school death metal, which is always good for the soul”.
The band returns the compliment: “Working with Tue Madsen has been a great experience, and helped us a lot in our goal to achieve the dynamic yet tight sound of this record. Growing up with bands like Illdisposed, Carcass, Benediction, and Asphyx, sets the tone and of course some musical inspiration as to where we are going and what influences us”, bassist Kelvin Dam states.
