Saksalainen progressiivista death metallia esittävä superyhtye Alkaloid on julkaissut kuunneltavaksi uuden kappaleensa “As Decreed By Laws Unwritten”. Kappale on osa yhtyeen toukokuun 18. päivä Seasons Of Mistin kautta julkaistavaa ”Liquid Anatomy” -albumia. Bändissä soittaa jäseniä yhtyeistä kuten Obscura, Spawn Of Possession ja Aborted. Kappale on kuunneltavissa No Clean Singing -sivustolla. Bändin kitaristi Danny Tunker kertoo kappaleesta:
“This was the second song I wrote for ‘Liquid Anatomy‘. When we first started sending demos and talking about songs we felt we needed some heavier songs. We had the title track, which is a ballad, ‘Kernel Panic‘ which didn’t have a heavy section yet and another song I wrote, which was a mellotron driven prog-ballad at that point and turned into ‘In Turmoil’s Swirling Reaches‘ later.
As a result Florian wrote ‘Azagthoth‘ and I wrote ‘As Decreed By Laws Unwritten‘. Most of the song was written in one sitting in a hotel room, but after it was conceived it went through various incarnations with a full-on flamenco part and even a string section. When I completed the lyrics I chose to drop those sections in favour of the desolate atmospheric section that’s there now.
This song also marks my singing debut with Alkaloid. I’d never done any screaming or harsh vocals but since I had a clear idea of how I wanted the vocals to be I just did demoed them at home. We found out that my voice blends quite nice with Florian‘s, so for this album I’m providing backing vocals on most songs. I’m extremely happy with how this song came out. Recording the rhythm parts over Hannes‘ ultra heavy groove was one of my favourite moments in the making of this album.”
