Following the "Dark Abstraction" album earlier this year, Alabama death metal outfit Ectovoid's next official release comes in the form of a stunning four-way split release. While splits are part and parcel to the metal underground, this one's a rarity in that it's also a full-length album composed of 10 separate tracks.
"4 Doors To Death" isn't officially dropping until January, but we're now bringing you some dark and dirty death metal ahead of time with an exclusive stream of "Possessed By Ancient Dread," the second of two offerings from Ectovoid and fifth track overall on the split release.
Each band on "4 Doors To Death" has their own individual cover image, with the full Ectovoid cover art also revealed in the player below along with the song stream (check out the overall cover artwork here).
Ectovoid was initially formed in 2010, recording a first demo titled "Breathing Blackness" in January of 2011 and releasing it later that March. It wasn't until later in 2012 that debut full-length album "Fractured In the Timeless Abyss" was unleashed through Hellthrasher Productions, followed by second album "Dark Abstraction" earlier this summer.

Split releases have been part of the DNA of death metal almost from the beginning, but split full-length albums are a rare breed, and have been fewer and farther between after the initial heyday of the genre.
In a conscious throwback to that era, Unspeakable Axe Records is proud to announce the January 22, 2016 release of "4 Doors To Death," featuring young and hungry bands Cemetery Filth (Tennessee/Georgia), Ectovoid (Alabama), Sabbatory (Winnipeg, Canada) and Trenchrot (Philadelphia).
The fearsome foursome have combined forces to produce 10 tracks of ugly and vicious death metal, the way it was originally meant to be played. The CD will feature separate booklets for each band, complete with band pics, lyrics, and distinctive cover artworks.
