Dissipate Premieres Full New EP "Tectonics"

Update: the stream has now ended, but the "Tectonics" EP can be purchased via iTunes or through Basick Records here.

We may be nearing the end of the year, but there's still a storm of brutal metal coming your way before we finally hit 2013.

In our continuing quest to bring you new music you may not have had a chance to hear before, today we proudly premiere the full new "Tectonics" EP from California's Dissipate.

All six tracks from the release can be heard below (the player may take a moment to load the songs after hitting "play") and you can see what Dissipate had to say about the band's Basick Records debut through this recent interview or check out our review of the EP right here.

Vocalist Josh Foster comments, "The Tectonics EP has a everything to do with the things in life that seriously rock our foundation. Sometimes, more often than not, awful things happen to us that are so 'earth shattering,' that it actually changes who we are, and can put us in a dark place.

"That’s why I think 'Tectonics' is such a great name for this EP, it’s a very heavy-handed understanding of how the world can physically shift at anytime, and conceptually, how it might just be our turn to stand on the fault line and fall in...it’s up to us alone to crawl back out and reclaim our life."

The "Tectonics" EP's track listing is as follows:

1. Motion (4:52)
2. Such is the Mind (of a Realist) (3:50)
3. Becoming the Mantis (4:07)
4. Mech Fail (4:37)
5. Fragments Lost (1:10)
6. Tectonics (4:44)

"Tectonics" is set for official release on November 19th, 2012 can be pre-ordered on its own or in a t-shirt bundle through Basick Records here. Give the EP an advance listen and let us know what you think about it in the comments below. More...

Dissipate Offering Free Song Download

Recent Basick Records signing Dissipate wants as many of you to get involved with the group's frenzied brand of technical metal as possible and is offering a free download of the track "Motion." The track is available from PureGrainAudio.com here.

The track is taken from the forthcoming Dissipate EP "Tectonics" (reviewed here), which will be released worldwide on November 19th. Pre-orders are available at this location.

Comments Basick Records label boss, Barley Phillips: "When a band mixes the discordant melody of Deftones with the sheer ferocity and filth of bands like Car Bomb and Ion Dissonance, I have no choice but to sit up and pay attention. These guys slay; hearing something so goddamn raw and unhinged in an age of digital over-editing is just so refreshing."

Dissipate Signs To Basick Records

Basick Records is proud to announce the latest addition to the label's growing international roster with American tech metallers Dissipate. The band’s new release, "Tectonics," is set to be released in Europe on November 19th and North America on November 20th. Basick Records comments:

"There is absolutely no doubting that California's Dissipate has a hell of a lot of noise to bring to the table. Showcasing genre-blending versatility, this is forward-thinking music that combines the percussive riffing and crushing precision of death metal, served with a brutal metal core edge. Dissipate has evolved at an incredible pace since re-grouping in 2011, working hard to hone and advance their sound, leading to a debut EP that pushes boundaries, complete with moments of exhilarating intensity."

Dissipate is Josh Foster (Vocals), Mike Gianelli (8-string Guitar), Jeff Faria (Drums/Percussion) and JT (Bass guitar). To celebrate the announcement, the band and label today released a guitar play through showcase video for the track "Motion," featuring guitarist Mike Gianelli, which can be viewed below. More...
