About a month ago, the Italian industrial/death metal outfit GESCHLECHT premiered a new track/video on our site. In anticipation of the official album release of their debut ‘New Load Continue’ tomorrow via Time To Kill Records, they unleash another track upon the world with ‘An Infinite Nightmare’ right here:
The album narrates the story of a player trapped in a videogame. The band comments:
“The protagonist gets swallowed up and has to complete the questline of the game by himself. His task will be to break the curse that plagues the 5 great warriors of the game world who will accompany him throughout his journey. The curse brings the warriors in a constant state of inebriation, depriving them of their powers as well and rendering them unable to perform their duty, or defeat the evil demons and gods. Only a gem imbued with the power of the blood moon can break the spell. The player will have to travel the game world to find the gem, in a race against a prophecy that announces the rise of a new god”.
“New Load Continue” tracklist:
04. The Power Of Five
05. The Prophecy
06. One Mind
07. Legion XXI
08. Home Sweet Home
09. To Transcend
10. Game Over
12. An Infinite Nightmare
Hailing from northern Italy, the band consists of Amedeo Finati (vocals), Amedeo Casale (guitar), Edoardo Volpato (bass), Fabio Speroni (drums): together they have been perfecting their musical skills since 2016, sharing the stage along the way with important Italian acts such as Cripple Bastards, Genus Ordinis Dei and Deathless Legacy.
Produced by Lacuna Coil’s Richard Meiz (also in Genus Ordinis Dei), courtesy of Eclipse Records, the upcoming follow-up to 2016’s self-titled debut EP displays the young band’s dazzling ambition and artistic vision. Not afraid to merge industrial vibes and extreme metal hardness, GESCHLECHT has chiseled out a modern metal album of undeniable impact.
Watch for single premieres, new tour updates, and more news on other upcoming GESCHLECHT activities to be posted shortly.
