Danish screamo behemoth DEMERSAL is back with new single “Androide Identiteter”

1 min read

Get ready for some raw, unfiltered emotion pouring out from the depths of the post-hardcore/screamo world. Demersal, the band that’s been ripping through the fabric of hardcore with their intense vibes, is back with a brand new track that’s gonna set your soul on fire. After hitting us hard with ‘Lys I Natten,’ they’re cranking up the heat withAndroide Identiteter,’ a track that kicks off unassuming but quickly escalates into a full-blown demonic assault.

Starting off with a deceptive calm, the song suddenly smashes into you with a power that’s almost unholy. The vocals swing between raw, emotive screams and moments of soaring emotion, creating a rollercoaster of sound that’s impossible to predict. Midway, the track finds a moment of clarity, easing into clean vocals that give you a brief respite before diving back into the chaos, ending on a melodic note that leaves you craving more.

DEMERSAL’s knack for weaving together chaotic hardcore punches with atmospheric post-rock elements shines through, making ‘Androide Identiteter’ a testament to their versatility and depth.

The band’s journey from their debut EP ‘To Mend A Yellow Wound’ to their upcoming self-titled album shows a growth that’s not just about louder guitars or more screams, but about exploring the complex landscapes of emotion and frustration.
