Brooklyn-based extreme metallers Mortals have just premiered a new song from the trio’s upcoming Relapse Records debut Cursed to See the Future. The album will be released on July 8th in North America, July 4th in GAS, Benelux, Finland and on July 7th in the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.
Listen to The Summoning at this location.
According to the AV Club online, Mortals “summon the best of metal’s assorted sub-genres on new track.” Writer David Anthony heaped praise upon the new tune, noting that “the band shows its ability to defy classification as it explores everything from doom to black metal over the course of the song’s nine pummeling minutes.”
Listen to the punishing opening track View From a Tower on Soundcloud here or on Youtube here. Metal Injection praised the song, saying “there are definite shades of blackened sludge here, but there’s also a punk rock energy that infuses the track with urgency. Genre nerds could spend hours arguing over Mortals’ various and sundry influences, but the rest of you should simply rest assured that View From the Tower is a ravenous blast of heavy metal thunder.”
