Indonesian grindcore veterans Extreme Decay, formed in 1998, have released their fourth full-length ‘Downfall of a God Complex’ consisting of 22 songs and will be released on the following formats: CD, cassette and vinyl.
The band stated, “The title Downfall of A God Complex is chosen to represent an idea of the downfall of people who act like god. It is about those who always feel righteous. Overtly conservative and ignorant. The lyrics have such an arching theme, while also designing a picture of dystopia and apocalypse. Such main theme is related to the falling of social, political, religious, economic, popular culture, and ecological disaster happening around the world.”
The cover art for Downfall Of A God Complex was painted on canvas by Rio Krisma from Penahitam.
As always when veteran bands from Asia release new music, an army of labels (thankfully) get involved. In Extreme Decay’s case, the CD version is being released Selfmadegod Records out of Poland who in the past have handled records by Antigama, Nasum, Unholy Grave, and Agathocles.
The cassette version will be released by Grieve Records out of Indonesia.
The vinyl version is being worked on through a collaborative effort of several labels: Gruesome Records (Portugal), Psychocontrol Records (Czech Rep.), 9lies Records (Austria), 17 Records Distro (Italy), Hecatombe Records (Spain), Deevolution Records (Germany), Noise to Help Records (Germany), Pasydarik Pats Records (Lithuania), Sacrilegio Distro (Brazil), Bucho Discos (Brazil).
Pre-orders for the CD and cassettes are available now:
