Florida’s masters of death metal, MASSACRE, have released a searing new single, “Ruins of R’lyeh,” from their highly anticipated 4th full-length album, “Resurgence,” that’s out October 22nd from Nuclear Blast.

MASSACRE rose from the swamps of Southern Florida in the early ’80s during a heatwave of groundbreaking death metal that produced some of the genre’s most revered forefathers  DEATH, OBITUARY, and SIX FEET UNDER.

So, you can understand our excitement with news of a brand new album [their fourth studio LP] on the way this coming October 22nd.

Commenting on the upcoming album, and the new single, vocalist Kam Lee states:

I’m going to take you back down into the abyss! This track, ‘Ruins of R’lyeh,’ like many of the others on the ‘Resurgence’ album are direct sequels to tracks off ‘From Beyond.’ 

With a purposeful musical connection to the track ‘Cryptic Realms,’ this new song of O.S.D.M. takes the listener back down into the depths of the darkness with a very heavy-laden Lovecraftian lyrical direction loosely based on ‘The Call Of Cthulhu.’ Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn (‘In his house at R’lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.’)
