Experimental duo Mamaleek have premiered their forthcoming full-length, Via Dolorosa, over at Steel for Brains. The album will officially be released next Tuesday, May 26, via The Flenser. The band issued the following comments regarding the release:
“It is at once, a solicitation and renunciation of the genres that are blended together to create something other…Traditional music turned against itself, in treasonous alliance with the barbarians at the gate whom it once hoped to keep out. May the acoustic ruin here documented compel you to turn to your lord. You may take these songs to your judgment day as a protest against the filthy oil pumping in your veins.”
The album is strange, often terrifying and in a league all of its own. Listen for yourself at Steel for Brains now.
As promised, Maruta have unveiled another new track on this fine hump day. The track premiered today is titled “Erode” and it is a blistering badass of a track.

Maruta + Pig Destroyer? Holy shit! CRUSH! Continue reading
