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. We have always considered adding symphonic elements to our music, but we never really got to experiment with it until we started writing/recording new music.

"We decided to release a demo version of this song to give our extremely patient fans something to listen to that better represents what we are now. We truly hope that everyone enjoys what we’ve been working on, and we look forward to releasing the final product in the very near future!"

After a major mishap in 2013, losing an entire album's worth of material to a producer's hard drive crash, Symbolik started mostly from scratch and spent the last couple of years writing (or entirely revamping) new material for the album. Stay tuned for more info, and you can hear previous music from Symbolik at Bandcamp here.

With the new album on the horizon, fans can expect to see Symbolik hitting the stage again later this year. The group is already slated to take part in this year's Bay Area Death Fest 2016, a 2 day event taking place at the Oakland Metro in Oakland, CA and featuring Oceano, Early Graves, Disentomb, Dehumanized and more, with heavy hitters Disgorge headlining Day 1, and death metal legends Suffocation headlining Day 2. More information on the event can be found at this location.
