UMBRA VITAE PREMIERE PUMMELING NEW TRACK, ‘MANTRA OF MADNESS’
The song appears on Umbra Vitae’s debut album ‘Shadow Of Life’ is out May 1st on Deathwish.
Recorded and mixed by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios (with guitars and bass recorded by McKenzie at The Black Coast), ‘Shadow Of Life’ is Umbra Vitae’s ten song debut. Unpredictable and unrelenting, the songs traverse from blackened to brutal from one moment to the next and on the album’s new single, ‘Mantra Of Madness’ Umbra Vitae cross over into death metal territory.
Driven by traditional death metal riffage coupled with inhuman percussion, their debut album ‘Shadow Of Life’ — out May 1st on Deathwish — is an all-encompassing entry point for Umbra Vitae. Expect a lot more to come from this supergroup, and look for more songs from their ferocious debut album to surface soon.
