“Soul Destroyer” Montreal death metal messiahs Kataklysm may have their Of Ghosts and Gods LP landing by the end of the month, but the group are screaming to the spirits a little early with a new, brutal preview from the collection. You can listen to “Soul Destroyer” now in an online stream.
The track booms forth with a litany quickly chugged, percussive guitar licks and TNT-detonating double kick work. As detuned melody injects itself into the tune, vocalist Maurizio Iacono growls about how the innocence of mankind is seemingly drowning in fear, and looking for solutions.
On behalf of the huddled masses, he asks of the titular soul destroyer: “Bring me solace, or bring me death.”
