Mothflesh returns to release their latest album, "Machine Eater". Self-described as the bands "true-form",Mothflesh has done away with fitting their sound into boxes and forged the 10 song release through a smattering of influences.

The album is a patchwork of borrowed elements, infusing discordant down-tempo chugging from early metalcorebands of the likes of Converge and Poison The Well with the modern death metal aggression of Decapitated and the technical edge of Cynic and Carbomb. Machine Eaterwill tick all your boxes if you're looking for a contemporary dropped-tuned neck cruncher with a distinct East Asian sound and a third-world attitude.
In cooperation with Believe Music album Machine Eater was released on the most popular streaming platforms. Check out here ➡

Later this month, 31th December 2021 this record will be available as digipak CD via Goatlordth Records & GLord Records.

Video to the “The Lotus Denial” song premiered at BlankTV.

Band commentary about lyrical theme: “Inspired by the state of culture and technology that beckons the doomsday clock to tick forward; Machine Eater is a dystopian love letter written to the modern metal listeners who are exhausted by the sterile, neon-gated vista of the perceived future. Mothflesh's interpretation of the state of aggressive music is a battery-powered monolith built upon the bedrock of Death Metal and propelled with the artery-pumping surge of Modern Hardcore. The ashen coated lyrics were anecdotes borne out of the South Asian smokestack of exploitation and capitalism tongued in a hybridisation of English and Bahasa. Voiced through Oriental modalities and pulsed on a Carnatic heartbeat, Machine Eater is Mothflesh's 40 minute, 10 song slaved vision of the future.

Band commentary about composing upcoming album: "The compositional process of our first single The Lotus Denial is the quintessential example of how Machine Eater was assembled through the course of 2021. The inspiration for the main hook draws it's dissonance voicing from traditional death metal, akin to Bolt Throweror Obituary. We follow this with a melodic counter melody based on the Hirajoshi scale. This hybrid application of both dissonant and minor scales are the taproot for how Mothflesh forms its voicing and riffs. Upon completion of the main riff, we composed some fundamental drum lines to provide context to the song's intensity and focus on the verse which acts as another anchorpoint. When utilising extended range guitars with strings tuned to Drop A, we felt that the Djentification was inevitable. The combination of intense main hooks and bouncy-castle-headbang verses provide another example for how the band utilises the concept of tension and release in its songcrafting. Once the framework for the drums were completed, the track was sent over to Naman Sachdev through fiverr to re-build the drum lines based on our foundation and his vision.".
