Terrorizer premiered the track “The Egg Thrower” from Beaten to Death’s sophomore full length Dødsfest! which will be out October 4th on Mas-Kina Recordings. The Norwegian grindcore group recorded everything live, and they have a sound that’s somewhat familiar but doesn’t fall completely into the standard grind sound. I’m digging what this song has to offer, and am ready to hear more of it.

Today Terrorizer Magazine offers up an exclusive track premiere from Norwegian grindcore innovators BEATEN TO DEATH. Titled “The Egg Thrower”, the tune comes from the band’s long-anticipated second album “Dødsfest!”, which is set for release on October 4th via Mas-Kina Recordings.

The 12-track follow up to the band’s critically-acclaimed 2011 debut, “Xes & Strokes”, “Dødsfest!” was recorded in total of six days at their rehearsal room and continues to carry Beaten to Death’s incredibly irreverent edge, boasting a twisted blend of quirky, but captivating melodies with some abrasive and cranium-smashing brutality. Again, there’s no editing, no quantizing, no triggering, no overdubs, no repitching, no retuning, no nothing. It’s all genuinely and 100% recorded live.

The band has also launched a brief YouTube teaser for the album, check it out here: http://youtu.be/wbNq9SxQ0qs

“…In song after song, Beaten To Death punch holes through grindcore’s low ceiling, let some air in and balance their earthly savagery with guitar jangle aimed straight towards the heavens. It’s a panoramic new vision for grindcore, Norwegian or otherwise”
Decibel Magazine

“The band blithely blend grind, death, hardcore punk, and post-whatever melodies with apeshit glee”

Metal Injection

“….BEATEN TO DEATH from Norway bring lots of innovative and fresh ideas to a genre where almost everything has been said already 20 years ago…. it’s almost genre redefining.”
Cvlt Nation

“Most grind bands can capture this tension live (..) but it’s much harder to do so in the studio. Norway’s Beaten to Death can do it..”
