The gore obsessed death metal maniacs from Castle Freak return with "Human Hive," which takes the sound from previous EP "Still Rotting" and propels it to the next level.
The EP features 5 tracks of disgusting death metal, including a re-recording of two older tracks ("Sickening Corpses" and "Toxic Winds") as well as a cover of Impetigo's "Boneyard."
"Human Hive" will be released on March 19th on both a limited edition cassette and digitally. This EP also marks a line-up change for the band with Ben Anft ow on bass (Ex-Necropsy) and Sebastian Phillips (Noisem) joining on drums.
Guitarist Zak Carter had the following to say: "I'm very fucking stoked about how our new EP 'Human Hive' turned out. It's our first release since coming back from being on hiatus for most of 2015, and our first with our new rhythm section. I'm very happy to have my longtime friends Sebastian Phillips and Ben Anft in the group on drums and bass, respectively, and I feel that their contributions to this release make it a perfect successor to 'Still Rotting' both in terms of songwriting and production."

This coming Monday - February 8th - Sorrow Plagues will unleash a self-titled album, but you don't have to wait for the weekend to be over to hear it first!
We're proud to be premiering all six tracks of diverse and adventurous black metal ahead of the release date. Listen in below, and if you like what you hear, be sure to pre-order a copy of "Sorrow Plagues" at Bandcamp here.
David Lovejoy of Sorrow Plagues had this to say about the release: "I think this is the album where I have fully discovered 'my sound' and the direction I want to go in the future. It fuses all of my influences together into a unique sound to me.
"It has been a long time in the making too, as 'Awaken' was written 2 years ago and I had no place for it, until I figured it would be perfect for this record. A couple of tracks took months to compose. So there's a lot of relief that it's finally complete!"
