Coming soon in 2016, the debut album by death-grind supergroup Asphalt Graves, on Vitriol Records.

Asphalt Graves consists of Jason Netherton (Misery Index, ex-Dying Fetus), Adam Faris (ex-War Torn), Brent Purgason (GWAR), and Shannon Lucas (ex-The Black Dahlia Murder).

In the band's own words, the intent of the new collab is "a modern take on the classic death/grind of the 1990s," naming influences like Repulsion, Napalm Death, Righteous Pigs, Phobia and Terrorizer.

Vitriol Records is the LA-based label owned by Justin Smith of Graf Orlock and Ghostlimb, whom the LA Weekly named "one of the most interesting people in Los Angeles."

As we wait for the Asphalt Graves album to surface, MetalSucks has premiered one new song, "Angst and Praise." It rips. Listen here:
