The Beast of Nod Release First Single

There can be no such thing as too many pizza flavored combos or over-the-top gonzo technical death metal bands. I'll go out on a limb and say that on the second point, Boston natives The Beast of Nod are in complete agreement. A self-described Intergalactic Death Metal band (more on that later), The Beast of Nod have just released... get ready for it: 'T.C.T.W.A.D.M.L.C'.; which, as I'm sure you've already guessed, is an acronym for: The Cybernetic Tiger with a Dorsal-Mounted Laser Cannon. 'T.C.T.W.A.D.M.L.C' is the first single from The Beast of Nod's debut LP 'Vampira: Disciple of Chaos,' due out on May 21st via their Bandcamp page. Yeah, when I said gonzo, I meant it. Now as for that Intergalactic Death Metal moniker, the band says that they are a "subgenre of death metal music featuring linear song structures, odd time signatures, and extremely technical passages, wherein songs explore the characters and events of a sci-fi universe called “ 'The Land of Nod.' ” Given my proclivity towards all-things science fiction and technical death metal, this track fits me like a well worn tiger skin glove or a family size bag of Combos. I should start a prog/tech DM band that screams and growls the praises of cheese filled pretzel logs and alpha predators that have been augmented to wield rail guns. And since that's never going to happen, I'll have to content myself with the extraordinarily well executed work of The Beast of Nod and this legitimately top-shelf sci-fi tech death offering. You can hear the single belowl and pre-order 'Vampira' through their Bandcamp page. And yes, we always want you to hit us up in the comments section and let us know what you think. Unless you want me to stop mentioning snack foods in my blogs, 'cause that's just asking too much. Rage on! JPR
