From The Press Release
Metal Injection is hosting the premiere of “Added Subtraction,” a ripping new track from Chicago-based CONTRITION, uniting current/former members of Nachtmystium, Wolvhammer, Usurper, Cobalt, Yakuza, Novembers Doom, Chrome Waves, Bones, and more. The band is preparing to release its debut album Broken Mortal Coil, through Disorder Recordings in late October.
CONTRITION picks up where prior collective Doomsday left off, rebuilding the lineup with a new moniker and immense intensity. The band sees Jerome Marshall (Cobalt, Yakuza) on vocals, Garry Naples (Novembers Doom, Without Waves) on drums, Jeff Wilson (Chrome Waves, Deeper Graves, ex-Wolvhammer) on guitars and synth, and Jon Woodring (Bones, ex-Usurper) on bass. The group’s Broken Mortal Coil debut is a gnarled, gritty affair, recorded during the 2020 lockdowns. The album delivers a deluge of stomping, groove-forged, low-end savagery, with the influence of early 1990s death metal, thick modern tones, and a hostile, streetwise vibe.
Broken Mortal Coil was engineered, mixed, and mastered by Jeff Wilson at Disorder Recordings, and completed with cover art by Ethan McCarthy (Primitive Man) and design by Wilson. Further expanding the record’s attack, CONTRITION invited several guests to contribute to the record, with additional vocals on “For Misery” by Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder), additional guitars on “Diluted” by Leon del Muerte (Impaled, ex-Exhumed), additional synth and vocals on “Desolation Star” by David Brenner (Gridfailure), and additional guitars on “Nihilistic Right” by Corey Parks (Graveripper). The album closes with a twisted rendition of Nirvana’s “Tourette’s.”
With the premiere of “Added Subtraction,” Jerome Marshall offers, “This song is an anthem for constant failure—the despair that is added to life when all problems take the form of a snowball effect. Just a piling-on of problems.”
Writes Metal Injection, “CONTRITION is now streaming their new single ‘Added Subtraction,’ whose entire four minutes may permanently darken your week and blacken your outlook on life. It might also cause you to full-body headbang yourself into your floor, and we’re not responsible for that either. That’s on you.”
