A rough-mix version of a new song from Australian melodic death metallers UNIVERSUM, "Sum Of The Universe", can be streamed in the YouTube clip below. The track features guest vocals from Christian Älvestam (SCAR SYMMETRY, SOLUTION .45) along with lead solos from both NIGHTRAGE axemen Marios Iliopoulos and Olof Mörck. According to the band, "it's one of the [upcoming] album's more melodic tracks and will be even more ballsy once Jens Bogren [OPETH, SOILWORK, AMON AMARTH, KATATONIA] is finished [mixing and mastering] it [at Sweden's Fascination Street Studios]!"
