"The Hypothesis" is the forthcoming new long player from Bay Area technical death metal architects Continuum.
Recorded predominantly by lead guitarist / composer Chase Fraser (Decrepit Birth, Animosity), with additional tracking and mixing by Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Fallujah, All Shall Perish et al.) at Castle Ultimate Studios, the ten-track "The Hypothesis" spews forth a scathing assemblage of abrasive, surgically precise compositions based conceptually on the mysteries of the infinite and the unsolved theories of the "continuum hypothesis."

The Bay Area death metal henchmen and recent Unique Leader signees from Continuum are readying to unleash their debut full-length, "The Hypothesis," this Spring.
The brain child of lead guitarist/composer Chase Fraser Decrepit Birth, Animosity), Continuum was forged in 2009 and features the current working lineup of Fraser alongside guitarist Ivan Munguia (Arkaik, Deeds Of Flesh), vocalist Riley McShane (Son Of Aurelius), bassist Nick Willbrand (Flesh Consumed) and drummer Spencer Edwards (Son Of Aurelius).

This theme is brought to life by the lyrics of Mcshane, the artwork of Raymond Swanland (Deeds of Flesh, Psycroptic, Suffocation), and the mathematical compositions of Fraser.
"The Hypothesis" will be released via Unique Leader Records on April 21st, 2015 with teaser tracks and preorder packages to be announced in the coming weeks. The track listing is: More...
