Hold up- is that new Immortalis?! You betcha! Wisconsin Progressive/deathcore legends Immortalis are finally releasing their latest single ‘Leviathan’ and MAN this one is a BANGER! This is the first release since their debut EP Symmetry in 2017- so naturally there has been much anticipation surrounding this release; which is set for October 26th, along with a video (like-WHAT?!) which the band teased earlier this month. Check it out below!
The beginning of this track reminds me of watching Midsommar, which may or may not be because I just watched it, but what I mean is it has a haunting allure to it that captivates you the moment the track begins. The vocals take hold of your soul with a vicious death-growl. As the track progresses I definitely get a Between The Buried and me vibe. As it bounces between death style and more progressive styles you get a bit of the clean vocals that play really well with the more aggressive vocals. As well as brilliant lyrical content- and for me, I am always there for those lyrics.
This track is beautifully balanced in the instrumental aspects as well. The guitars have killer hooks and leads throughout the entire track and the rhythms are relentless! Some of the guitar riffs give me some real gamer-feels too; the guitar leads are simply EPIC! Not to mention a SUPER special and SUPER secret guest is featured on this release as well- we can’t give away everything before you get the chance to indulge in this for yourself but lets just say *insert mind-blown and shooketh emojis here*.
It’s difficult for me to find the right words to describe what I feel when I experience ‘Leviathan’– but what I can tell you is that it is no surprise to me that Immortalis fans old and new are at the very edge of their seats waiting for this release! I know that I am!
Catch them LIVE at the SV2 in Green Bay, WI on October 25th- event link HERE!
