Kamikabe Posts Playthrough Video

Pittsburgh, PA tech death metal machine Kamikabe has released a playthrough video for the song "Nefarious," which comes from debut full-length "Aberration of Man," released in August 2012 via Unique Leader Records. Check it out below.

The band offered this brief update to go along with the playthrough clip: "Something to gnaw on while you wait for new material. Jake Smatana left us in 2013. We have since recruited Dave Kirsch on bass, and have begun writing for our next album."

Following the release of "Aberration of Man," Kamikabe hit the road in the Fall of 2012 for an East Coast Headline run with fellow heavy hitters Rivers of Nihil supporting. In Spring 2013, Kamikabe took part in the Bloodletting North America tour, which featured Gorod, Inanimate Existence and Vale of Pnath. Immediately following the Bloodletting tour, Kamikabe had to deal with some shifts in line up which sidelined the band for the remainder of 2013. More...

Kamikabe Checks In From Bloodletting Tour

Pittsburgh technical death metal tyrants Kamikabe are currently fracturing limbs and tearing ear drums on the Bloodletting North America Tour 2013, which commenced on May 3rd. Kamikabe touring in support of the "Aberration Of Man" long player unleashed via Unique Leader Records last Fall.

Brought to fruition by Unique Leader Records, Kamkikabe joined by headlining label mates/French tech death metal masters, Gorod. Additional support is provided by Inanimate Existence (Unique Leader) and Vale of Pnath (Willowtip).

Comments the band: “We couldn’t be any more stoked about this tour! An opportunity to shred with Gorod in the States is not something that happens too often. Plus, adding Inanimate Existence and Vale of Pnath to the lineup, as well as several other sick bands on select dates, makes this tour that much more crushing! We’ve been sharpening our blades to destroy every city we hit. The years of hard work and support from everyone that has helped us along the way really speaks volumes for the death metal culture that we’re lucky to have!” More...

Kamikabe Streaming "Sufferer"

Comments the band: “’Sufferer’ is an onslaught of technicality and intensity mixed with grind oriented breaks and blasts, blistering from beginning to end. It really shows the combined elements of technical, and heavy riffing Aberration of Man has to offer!”
