Montreal technical death metallers Derelict are streaming a new track online as a preview of their next album. Listen to it here:
“Perpetuation is about our current social system, which has humanity pitted against itself in endless competition and misery,” explains vocalist Eric Burnet. “We can choose to perpetuate this system until we burn ourselves out, or we can choose to do something more sustainable and perpetuate our species.”
This is the first of three songs to be released this month as part of Derelict’s new promotional demo.
“Although we’re labeling this as a demo, the production is full album quality,” says Burnet. “We went with Chris Donaldson (Beneath The Massacre, The Agonist, etc) again for the mix and master, and we got Sébastien Pittet (ex-Augury touring bassist) on fretless bass duties. All in all we’re pretty psyched and we hope this gets people excited for our next album.”

Over the next few months Derelict will be putting the finishing touches on their next release, playing select shows around Quebec, Ontario, and the East Coast, and looking at expanding their reach to the US and Europe.
Derelict’s 2009 release ‘Unspoken Words’ is available in stores across Canada through Year Of The Sun Records, in the US and online through Relapse Records, as well as on iTunes.
