A pummeling assault nothing can prepare you for.
We're at a point in metal where we can trust anything coming from Dave Otero's garage to be commandingly heavy. Add the sheer ferocity of Chicago's IMMORTAL BIRD and you get a release worthy of your full undivided attention. It all comes together on the unit's sophomore album Thrive On Neglect, out July 5th via 20 Buck Spin.
Four years since the debut Empress/Abscess and IMMORTAL BIRD have evolved into a new being of a different magnitude. The band merge an array of musical elements from across the board; grind, death metal, black metal, noise, hardcore, and more. This isn't just a clusterfuck of sound either. This disparaging assault merges all in complete cohesion, bouncing off one another and coming together to form one, unified sound that will level the poor soul who presses play.
