AlphaSix - "Abyssal Awakening"

Even though we don't cover a ton of metal here at If It's Too Loud..., apparently there are two secrets to get our attention. The first is to have it be extremely loud and fast. The second is to describe it as "Lovecraftian sci-fi horror metal." AlphaSix fit both of those qualifications, so we're all over their latest single. "Abyssal Awakening" blows all of those stadium metal bands away by sure volume. It's loud, it's fast, there's a ton of screaming, the drums sound like some kind of monster is rapidly gaining on you, and the guitar just pummels you into submission. AlphaSix will certainly not be for anyone, and your metal loving friend could even hate them. But if you're looking for a fresh and exciting take on the genre, "Abyssal Awakening" could end up being what you need.

AlphaSix say of their new single:

“We had a vision, to achieve a song of chaos. Filled with different scenes throughout to tell a prophecy showing the insignificance of humans when faced with a full scale onslaught.”

You can watch the video for "Abyssal Awakening" below. Assimilate: Oceans is due out later this year. For more on AlphaSix, check out the band's website.
