Symbolik Premieres "Coalescing The Void" Demo

California's melodic / blackened death metal metal maniacs from Symbolik are currently working on an upcoming full-length release due out later this year, but in the mean time the group has decided to give an early taste of what's to come.

We're immensely proud to be giving an advance look into the coming brutality with an exclusive premiere of the "Coalescing The Void" demo - listen in below!

The final version of "Coalescing the Void" will be on the band's as-yet-untitled debut full length album. The guys decided to follow in the footsteps of their more established Northern California/Bay Area peers in Machine Head by going back to the old school Bay Area thrash approach of releasing a demo track before an official album release.

Lead guitarist, Allen Burton comments: "‘Coalescing the Void’ is a track off our upcoming album that represents the next chapter of Symbolik. Our sound has changed a lot since our first release, and this is one of the songs that started that transition into what we’ve become today.

Symbolik Posts Lyric Video

Stockton, CA's melodic death metal merchants Symbolik have teamed up with Heavy Blog Is Heavy to debut a lyric video for the track "Twin Fates." Check out the video here or in the player below.

The track comes from the band's "Pathogenesis" EP, which was released digitally in late 2011 and will see a physical release later this month. Symbolik's lead guitarist Allen Burton had the following to say about the clip:

"This lyric video has been a fun collaboration between Symbolik and our good friend Charlie Vang. In making this video, we decided to use some of best live photos that we had of the band to showcase how much energy the music actually produces between us and the fans during our live shows. The photos are from various shows we have played over the past year and many of our friends and longtime fans can be seen among the masses. We felt that it would be a good addition to the video, so that anyone watching might be hitting replay just to see if they can find themselves in one of the shots. The visual effects were added to the background and images to keep the video interesting. We didn't want something simple with the words just scrolling down as the song plays, as that can get boring pretty fast. More...
