Psycroptic Releases New Single

Dynamic Australian technical metal band Psycroptic just unveiled a new single, titled “Echoes To Come,” which can be heard below.

"Echoes To Come" will appear on the group’s self-titled Prosthetic debut, due out in the Spring.

A portion of proceeds from sales of the single will be donated to Devil Ark, an organization fighting to save Tasmanian Devils from extinction, making Psycroptic perhaps the only metal band in the world that has actually given money to the devil.

Psycroptic Reveals New Album Artwork

Aussie technical death metal outfit Psycroptic has revealed the cover art for the band’s fifth studio album, "The Inherited Repression," which will hit stores on February 7th in North America and February 10th in Europe on Nuclear Blast Records.

Commented Psycroptic guitarist, Joe Haley, “The Inherited Repression is far and away my favorite Psycroptic album thus far - all of us in the band think this. It’s the age-old cliché from bands when they talk about their current album as being the best of their career, blah, blah, but I have to say it because it’s true. We wouldn’t think there is a point of going on if we couldn’t outdo each album prior. We are certainly not playing music for anything else than the love of creating it and performing it.

“The Inherited Repression is quite different from anything we have done in terms of song writing and structure, and we spent a lot longer writing and demoing the songs before we recorded it, which you can tell. It’s a very dynamic album - the fast elements faster, the slow elements slower, and a lot of light and dark binding it together. It’s a very catchy album as well - you can tap your foot, bang your head or anything else you want. Basically it has a lot of groove on it from start to finish.”

The artwork can be viewed below, and the track listing is as follows:

1. Carriers of the Plague
2. Forward to Submission
3. Euphorinasia
4. The Throne of Kings

Psycroptic Issues Band Update

Psycroptic drummer Dave Haley has posted the following update online:

"Well, 2010 was a pretty busy year for Psycroptic. We released our first-ever DVD in early 2010 and toured Australia with Decapitated to promote the release. We played China and Inner Mongolia; we were the first Western band to play the city of HoHot in Inner Mongolia; crazy stuff! We toured Europe with our close friends Cephalic Carnage and rounded out the year with a U.S. tour with Nile.

"In between all of this we were hard at work writing our new album, which we're happy to say is fully written. It's as yet untitled, but we are throwing a few names around. We start tracking the drums on February 14th at Red Planet Studios, and once completed we will be moving to Joe's [Psycroptic guitarist] studio to complete all the rest of the recording. We'll be taking our time on this one, as we have felt a little rushed in the past... The material is great so we want to ensure the recording matches. We'll post studio progress reports to keep everyone updated.

"Look out for the new album later this year!!"

Psycroptic Vocalist To Miss U.S. Tour

Jason Peppiatt, vocalist of the technical death metal act Psycroptic, has announced plans to skip the band's forthcoming U.S. tour with Nile. Zdenek Simecek of Godless Truth will replace Peppiatt on the tour.

Jason Peppiatt commented by saying:

"A month or so after we confirmed the U.S. tour, I was greeted with the excellent news that I would be a new father, halfway through the tour no less. Since I could not miss the birth, and I couldn't exactly drive from the U.S. to Tasmania, I talked it through with the rest of the guys and decided to ask Zdenek in to fill for the last tour of the 'Ob(servant)' album for me.

"Zdenek has been a longtime friend of the band and is a super-talented vocalist, so I'm happy to have him in my shoes for this run. I'll be working hard demoing the new material while at home (as well as changing nappy's), and I'll see you all in 2011!"
