Update: the stream has now ended, but the "Tectonics" EP can be purchased via iTunes or through Basick Records here.

We may be nearing the end of the year, but there's still a storm of brutal metal coming your way before we finally hit 2013.

In our continuing quest to bring you new music you may not have had a chance to hear before, today we proudly premiere the full new "Tectonics" EP from California's Dissipate.

All six tracks from the release can be heard below (the player may take a moment to load the songs after hitting "play") and you can see what Dissipate had to say about the band's Basick Records debut through this recent interview or check out our review of the EP right here.

Vocalist Josh Foster comments, "The Tectonics EP has a everything to do with the things in life that seriously rock our foundation. Sometimes, more often than not, awful things happen to us that are so 'earth shattering,' that it actually changes who we are, and can put us in a dark place.

"That’s why I think 'Tectonics' is such a great name for this EP, it’s a very heavy-handed understanding of how the world can physically shift at anytime, and conceptually, how it might just be our turn to stand on the fault line and fall in...it’s up to us alone to crawl back out and reclaim our life."

The "Tectonics" EP's track listing is as follows:

1. Motion (4:52)
2. Such is the Mind (of a Realist) (3:50)
3. Becoming the Mantis (4:07)
4. Mech Fail (4:37)
5. Fragments Lost (1:10)
6. Tectonics (4:44)

"Tectonics" is set for official release on November 19th, 2012 can be pre-ordered on its own or in a t-shirt bundle through Basick Records here. Give the EP an advance listen and let us know what you think about it in the comments below.

I know as a human of the gender Male who is attracted to other humans of the gender Male my opinions are sometimes taken lighter than some; However I do strongly believe this album was sifted for crap through the rakes of which my heart is never ceasing to tend to. I love this album and I hope it gets out there. It truly calls out to my very being and I can't wait to express this to my parents in a concerned and loving way.

Came here on a tip from Skyharbor and glad I did, wrote this as I listened through the entire album. A first listen. Interesting blend of so many different influences, styles, technical puzzle work pieced well together in some familiar yet unlikely manifestation..provokes mental feeling images like picking up random masses of fragments, shards, splinters- bleeding- welding together. Molten. A life explosion slow-mo froze in time-replayed-viewed from multiple angles. Evaluated. Reminds of that pain that never goes away, that eats away inside. Peeled away layers to reveal.

Honestly as I listened it felt like any second it would all go to sh** like some other cliche random noisy sh** music but well into Mech Fail and it's just not letting me go.

Your work is worthy, it is good, and you should feel good :) It is beautifully executed with technical brutality. A well trained ear is rewarded.

IMHO a slight bit more variation to differentiate the songs would lift the work. Gets a bit familiar already on the 2nd listen through. Good luck to you!
