Decrepit Birth Posts "Epigenic Triplicity" 360 Degree Lyric Video

Decrepit Birth is set to release first new album in seven years, "Axis Mundi," on July 21st via Agonia Records (Europe / ROW) and Nuclear Blast Records (North America).

"Epigenic Triplicity" is the first single to be revealed from the record - check out the track in the form of a 360 degree VR lyric video below.

"We’ve gone through an evolution throughout the years" says founding member and primary songwriter Matt Sotelo. "The last couple of albums we had, 'Diminishing Between Worlds' and 'Polarity,' were more progressive death metal. They were different from' …And Time Begins,' which is a different genre of death metal.

"It’s more brutal. I’m the type of guy who likes to experiment. '…And Time Begins' has no solos. It’s all really fast palm-muted riffs. The other albums breathed more with the guitars. I let chords ring out on Diminishing Between Worlds and Polarity. Axis Mundi is combination of all the stuff I’m into. I like it a lot right now. It’s more melodic. The riffs repeat intentionally. I want to have fun with these songs."

"I don’t know if we’re going to re-shape death metal," he continues, "We’re just a band. We’re doing this. We’re fans of the genre. We do our own thing with it. It’s our own paint job. What sounds cool to us. We don’t aspire to be the most technical band out there. The technicality isn’t our main goal. Technicality is part of what we are. When we were writing this album, we wanted the songs that had riffs that repeat. There’s more structure with our new stuff. We’re trying to write good music. We want to entertain people out there. Hopefully, everybody likes 'Axis Mundi.'"

I'm not sure I get why a lyric video is 360 degrees - if you pan away, you just don't see the lyrics and have a static image instead. It's not like a live video where there's other stuff going on in the other directions. f***ing pointless.
