Ingested Premiere New Song “Mouth Of The Abyss”

Ingested have premiered a new song titled “Mouth Of The Abyss.” This track is from the band’s new EP “The Call Of The Void,” which will be released on June 14.

Drummer Lyn Jeffs said the following about the upcoming EP:

“Our new EP isn’t just material for materials sake or a stop gap between albums, this is something we feel is an important evolution in our style and is a piece of music that will again transcend the genre of slam.

We feel immensely proud of ‘The Call Of The Void‘, it is something we have worked hard on to develop while on the road so much of 2018. It is darker, riff-heavy and atmospheric but still has all the ingredients that make Ingested what it is.

To celebrate the release we are coming back to Europe on a short tour with our friends Within Destruction on select dates. We are excited for you guys to hear ‘The Call Of The Void‘ both on record and live.”
