Zom to release debut album in November

ZOM flesh assimilation - full coverIrish blackened death metal trio Zom are to release their debut album, ‘Flesh Assimilation’, through Dublin-based Invictus Promotions on November 24.

Featuring cover artwork by renowned artist Zbyszek Bielak, the album is the follow up to a previously released demo and a subsequent 7″.  In a statement, the band said of ‘Flesh Assimilation’:

“Across its eight tracks, ZOM render such terms as ‘death metal’ and ‘black metal’ irrelevant, as they mangle and gnarl otherwise-safe idioms to their own diabolical design.  From there, ZOM create a dangerousness that’s uniquely theirs – and immediately palatable, its power all-consuming – drawing in influence from D-beat and crust but, once again, malforming anything remotely recognizable into a hideous, horrific maw of sepulchral sound.  The recording on ‘Flesh Assimilation’ is raw yet robust, the performances loose yet locked-in, the lyricism cosmic yet idiosyncratic, and the end result is a fist in the face of complacency, across all manner of metal and “metalheads,” for ZOM are lone wolves on the hunt and you are the prey.”

PlanetMosh will be reviewing the album closer to its release date.  In the meantime, you can keep in touch with developments at https://www.facebook.com/pages/ZOM/195971213790266
