Decibel Magazine premieres breathtaking new FETID ZOMBIE track

Fetid Zombie is a multi-faceted death metal band from the legendary artist Mark Riddick. With each track that’s premiered, a new dimension of the full length album gets revealed. This track here showcases the band’s emotive side, while upholding the band’s singular style of atmospheric old school death metal. Decibel Magazine in their premiere HERE had this to say about it –

“On an album loaded to the gills with heater riffs, “Beyond Andromeda” is an off-speed pitch. It’s built around melodic guitar leads and John Carpenter-esque synth and anchored in Riddick’s throaty growl. In a tight three-and-a-half minutes, the song taps into a cosmic vastness that lesser bands would need twice as long to invoke. Riddick stays undefeated.”

Death metal band Fetid Zombie is the brainchild of the legendary artist Mark Riddick. An unstoppable force in the underground, Riddick has put out dozens of releases, mostly splits with bands from around the world, in addition to releasing six full length albums. It’s been five years since the release of his last full length ‘Epicedia’ which came out on the same label, and now Riddick has once again teamed up with some extremely talented musicians to fulfill his vision of dark and atmospheric death metal that is rooted in the classic heavy metal sound. Contrary to the one-dimensional and predictable songwriting of most of the current bands, Fetid Zombie‘s songs are impeccably structured, with there being excellent contrasting passages, be it melodic flashes or slower, heavier hooks, flurry of leads or just some transcendental atmospheric part, all of which work beautifully against the backdrop of deep, guttural growls and stellar death metal riffing. This is a passionate and memorable death metal album that pushes the boundaries of the rigid genre in its own way, and it’s one you’ll keep coming back to because of its timeless value and flawless execution.
