Illustration for article titled Fallujah adds atmosphere to death metal on its new song “Levitation”

Progressive death metal is all about precise, even surgical technicality—but Fallujah has an ethereal side that can’t be contained. The San Francisco death-metal outfit’s new album, The Flesh Prevails, broadens and deepens the band’s scope, incorporating spacious passages of atmosphere into chilling, brainy riffage. The track “Levitation,” being debuted here, shrouds itself in ambience and melody even as it refuses to flinch in the face of man’s inhumanity to man.


The Flesh Prevails will be released July 22 via Unique Leader.
