The Skinny: With the official release of their upcoming full-length now less than a month away, today Tasmanian technical death metal derelicts, Mephistopheles have premiered their new song “Those Whose Skin Was Gold”. The latest canticle of chaos is the sixth track off Sounds of the End. Called “vicious, artful, and sonically different” by Decibel Magazine, Sounds of the End was recorded at Red Planet Studio with Jake Long and expels some of the band’s most brutal, intricately arranged, and psychologically deranged work to date.
Comments vocalist Matthew “Chalky” Chalk (formerly of Psycroptic): “Two people are about to fight in an alley, one has a sword, the other a portable music device and a broken bottle. The device has Mephistopheles’ Sounds of the End on it. Who wins the fight? Neither. They leave the alley, each with one earbud in, moshing furiously. If one of them had been deaf, it could’ve been a very different result.”
