DECREPIT BIRTH: New Song Available For Streaming

"(A Departure of the Sun) Ignite the Tesla Coil", a brand new song from Santa Cruz, California tech-death masters DECREPIT BIRTH, is available for streaming on the band's MySpace page. The track comes off the group's third album, "Polarity", which will be released on July 27 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD artwork was completed by cult artist Dan Seagrave (MORBID ANGEL, ENTOMBED, SUFFOCATION).

Commented guitarist Matt Sotelo: "Dan's art fits the overall theme of the album perfectly.

"We had approached Dan with some ideas at a show of ours he attended.

"It was really cool to finally meet Dan in person and get the chance to explain to him some of our song themes as well as ideas for the new album cover. We could tell that he was excited to help us on this one!

"The cover depicts images of ancient energies and balance, which is something that is personal for us, and perfectly reflects our abstract lyrical and musical style.

"Dan's art is so unmistakable!"

Seagrave offered an even more in-depth reasoning behind his artistic interpretation: "It is the vision of a transcendental nightmare where the perception of technological power has gone beyond the will of the author.

"In the slumbering cohesive minds of the human race, and the absence of communicative truth between people, their social masks become their Sarcophagi. A telepathic cult is formed that fells the earth, reducing it to an atomic level. Its information trapped in mirrored shards. Through this energy, distant echos of images are glimpsed, particles reform, and a new chronozone period is born, set adrift at a dawnless epoch."

Drums for "Polarity" were tracked at Sharkbite Studios (MACHINE HEAD, EXODUS) in Oakland with producer Zack Ohren (ALL SHALL PERISH, SUFFOCATION, IMMOLATION) while the rest of the recordings were overseen by guitarist Matt Sotelo before the entire effort was mixed by Ohren at Castle Ultimate Studios.
