On May 5th, Nightmarer will release Deformity Adrift — a culminating effort reflective of the band's work ethic with wicked Jeanne Comateuse artwork to boast. Now comprised of current and former members of The Ocean, Convulsing, Gigan, War From A Harlot’s Mouth, and more, Nightmarer sport a wealth of talent among their ranks, the likes of which is heard throughout the second full-length's lead single, Throe Of Illicit Withdrawal. Crushing death metal aggression of shifting tempos and somber atmospheres make this one intense listen. It all arrives via the band's own Total Dissonance Worship label and Vendetta Records.

Nightmarer comments on the track:

“This song is about having to give yourself up entirely, in order to function as a cog in a machine that exploits every last bit of your body, mind, and soul. It's a constant battle between oppressive tension and the promise of a release that never comes. The result is a misery so deep, any attempt at disassociating from it is futile. 'Throe Of Illicit Withdrawal' embodies that musically and lyrically.”

Stream Throe Of Illicit Withdrawal below and pre-order Deformity Adrift.
