Bordeaux, France-based masters of technical death metal EXOCRINE have announced the release of new album Maelstrom on 26th June via Unique Leader. The band have also premiered the music video for the title-track.
Maelstrom is the band's fourth album since their inception in 2013, and first with new drummer Théo Gendron. The band commented, "We really pushed our limits this time, in composition and production. We put all our creativity into this album to make Maelstrom as surprising as possible while remaining true to our style. "The arrival of Théo in the band has allowed us to try new things like extreme tempos, but also very difficult and proggy parts. We’ve really pushed ourselves to create a sound that works perfectly on the album but also on stage. "Because it’s our 4th album we wanted to deeply explore our imagination, that’s why we have some guests on Maelstrom in order to further enrich our universe. This time we’ve really experimented with new sounds and instruments. "Anyway, it is certainly intense, but also crazy and fun!"
