A brand new song from Santa Cruz, California technical death metallers BRAIN DRILL entitled "Monumental Failure" is available for streaming on the band's MySpace page. The track comes off the group's second full-length album, "Quantum Catastrophe", which is scheduled for release on May 11 via Metal Blade Records.
Commented bassist Ivan Munguia: "'Monumental Failure' has a couple of the most mosh inducing riffs on the new album 'Quantum Catastrophe', but it also showcases the direction we are heading in terms of songwriting.
"'Monumental Failure' was one of the first songs written for 'Quantum Catastrophe', so, in a way, we're easing listeners into some of the more complex songs that we wrote."
In other news, BRAIN DRILL recently shot footage for the first music video from "Quantum Catastrophe" for the track "Beyond Bludgeoned". The clip was filmed in the middle of nowhere near Birds Landing close to the San Joaquin Delta/Rio Vista, California and was directed by Nikko DeLuna and shot by Justin Potter.
Stated Munguia: "This guy that Nikko knows had a hookup that let us onto this utility company-owned land. There was a dilapidated old house and some pretty cool scenery so we figured it was a good spot to shoot.
"We picked 'Beyond Bludgeoned' as the first video because we feel it's one of the strongest songs on the album and showcased everyone's contributions to the album."
