Formed in 2013, Italian extreme metallers Cerebral Extinction have racked up the miles in the extreme metal scene. From their first recording in 2013, onto their debut album Inhuman Theory of Chaos and through to the promotion for their second album, 2017’s Necro Parasite Anomaly, the Italians have spread their brutal message across their home country supporting the likes of Wormed, Vulvectomy, Devangelic, Katalepsy and more before heading out for festival slots and tours across Europe including UK dates with Black Skies Burn and an appearance at In The Flesh Party Open Air in Slovakia in 2018.

2019 saw the band return to the studio with a new drummer, Nicola and bassist Wally, to start work on their new album. Their third album, Escape From Illusion, is due for release in July and sees the band heading in a more technically orientated direction. As a taster for the record, the band are today premiering their crushing new single, “The 4 Eyes of Chaos” right here!

But what are the “4 Eyes of Chaos”? We let the band explain:

“‘4 Eyes of Chaos’ is a mask that has a distinct power of chaos for each eye. Secrets are dead. Hidden. Buried. Outraged. I sink my arms and feel my knuckles rip in the muddy depths. I connect, I blind myself to the giant sleeping black angel. I see through the mask of the 4 eyes of chaos.”

Cerebral Extinction releases their new album, Escape From Illusion on July 15th, 2022 and you can pre-order your copy here.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
