BRAIN STEM to Release 'Symptoms of Annihilation - Stage 2' on March 20

BRAIN STEM band

Experimental Death Metal quartet Brain Stem is proud to announce the March 20 release of concept EP Symptoms of Annihilation - Stage 2. The EP is the second chapter of a journey begun with 2018's Symptoms of Annihilation - Stage 1.

 

EP track "Dawn of Rot" is streaming now below:

 

 

Vocalist Jessy Leduc explains the concept that spans both EPs:

"With both Symptoms of Annihilation EPs, we're not just talking about a serial killer or one single brutal murder, we're talking about global mass extinction, the downfall and mutated rebirth of humanity as we know it. With every song, comes a new way of how humanity could come to an end. It’s an endless realm of possibilities, but it all boils down to one thing: we’re all gonna die."

 

Established in 2016, Brain Stem isn't the easiest to define with an exact subgenre. Noted to be groovy at times, but also technical when need be, they've made sure that their sound is not limited by one train of thought, molding metal the way they see fit. With their second Symptoms of Annihilation, Brain Stem is an outstanding example of what experimental death metal has to offer.
