Progressive, technical death metal collective Alluvial has released a cataclysmic new single titled, “Thy Underling” from the band’s highly anticipated sophomore album, Sarcoma, that’s due out May 28 from Nuclear Blast.
Guitarist Wes Hauch comments on the single: “The first half of the song is from the perspective of a scornful entity. The idea is that a wraith and aims to confuse and debilitate the host ‘Until he rots and lies stinking in the earth’, a line borrowed from one of my favourite movies. The second half is from the perspective of the host. The content is based on an ongoing experience I have, but I think anyone could apply it to something familiar to them.”
