Lord Mantis - "Body Choke"

New MusicadminComment

Chicago metal outfit Lord Mantis is about to drop their third full-length on April 29th via Profound Lore, and this new track of theirs sets quite a tone.

I first heard of this band a year or so ago when they dropped Pervertor, which was a pretty intense set of blackened sludge songs. Intense, yes, but not all that memorable. However, I'm finding "Body Choke" to be much more gripping, abrasive, and heavy. Man, this track weighs a ton. It's like slowly being crushed, and might give that new Indian album a run for it's filthy, disgusting money.

To add to the insanity, this thing is almost nine minutes long, and pummels throughout. Enjoy!
