Italian technical death metal band HIDEOUS DIVINITY has just released a new track, “Chestburst.” The track was pulled from the band’s recently released EP, LV-426 on Century Media Records. The EP is inspired by James Cameron’s Aliens film. The album is a sub-narrative focusing on Rebeca “Newt” Jorden’s point-of-view from Aliens. You can check out the new track and visualizer video down below along with more details on the EP.
From The Press Release
Italian technical death metal band HIDEOUS DIVINITY releases their second brutal single and visualizer video “Chestburst” today. Watch the video HERE. The track is off their forthcoming EP LV-426, which is set for release via Century Media Records on April 23rd.
“That persistent beat in James Horner’s ‘Face Huggers’ theme from the movie score… it all starts there. If ‘Acheron Stream of Woe’ is the epic theme, then ‘Chestburst’ is the crazy fast escape tune. It’s the soundtrack of alien drones hunting the Colonial Marine squad. And no, there’s no happy ending,“ states HIDEOUS DIVINITY about the track.
Italian based technical Death Metal diehards Hideous Divinity deliver their staggering conceptual EP LV-426. The concept of the EP is a sub-narrative of the second Alien movie, directed by James Cameron.
The Hideous Divinity adds, “We chose to concentrate on the story of Rebeca ‘Newt’ Jorden, the 6-year old girl rescued on the alien infested planetoid LV-426 by Ellen Ripley. We live the story from her point of view, a mixture of childhood’s happy life and memories cut off by the alien attack.”
The EP includes two brand-new Hideous Divinity tracks, “Acheron, Stream of Woe” & “Chestburst” and a smashing Tech-Death cover version of Coheed and Cambria’s “Delirium Trigger”. Like its predecessor, Simulacrum, the EP has been produced by Stefan Morabito at 16th Cellar Studio, who refined the bands signature sound consisting of bone-crushing riffs, superb drumming, and frightful vocals. Also, the EP features a stunning Alien-themed artwork by Colin Estrada.
LV-426 will be available as Ltd. CD Edition (Pocket Pack) and on all digital platforms.
- Acheron, Stream of Woe

HIDEOUS DIVINITY is Enrico “H.” Di Lorenzo (vocals), Enrico Schettino (guitars), Stefano Franceschini (bass), Giulio Galati (drums) and Riccardo Benedini (guitars).
