Alkaloid, the quartet featuring drummer Hannes Grossmann (Triptykon, ex-Obscura), guitarist and vocalist Morean (Noneuclid, ex-Dark Fortress), guitarist Christian Münzner (Eternity’s End, Obscura), and bassist Linus Klausenitzer (Noneuclid, Obsidious, ex-Obscura), is now streaming their nightmarishly technical new single “The Cambrian Explosion”. Well mostly – it takes a hard left about a minute in (and then a few times after that) before getting back to the madness.

Alkaloid points out that “The Cambrian Explosion” was a song written by former guitarist Danny Tunker, and was meant to be pretty nuts. Mission accomplished, dude.

Danny left us this song before he quit the band,” said Alkaloid of the single. “It started as a tribute to our tech death past, but after some additional mangling by the band, the song became something we’re not sure any longer where it belongs, but which excites us all the more for it. The lyric describes four billion years of evolution of multicellular life in under four minutes.

“We no longer consider ourselves part of the tech death genre; in fact we never did. But we always embrace musical extravaganzas, and felt that this insane little missile of a track as a nod to both where we came from musically and to Danny‘s importance in this band in the past fits perfectly in between our other new songs on the album. As luck would have it, we were able to include a passage with a gospel choir directed by Sara Robalo, and managed to include a few other spontaneous and unexpected twists in the spur of the moment. Enjoy!”

Pre-orders for Numen are available here before its September 15 release date.
