Mendel bij de Leij (ex-Aborted), Ben Duerr (Shadow Of Intent), and Jared Christianson (Arkaik) have joined forces for a quarantine cover of Necrophagist’s “Fermented Offal Discharge.” You can check that out below:
Mendel bij de Leij commented:
“I’m probably one of the few people that’s still waiting for the new Necrophagist album, since that band had a huge impact on my playing. I’ve always wanted to do a cover from one of the songs off the Onset of Putrefaction album. Since ‘Fermented Offal Discharge’ is my favorite song off of that album and has one of my all time favorite solos, it was an easy pick. The hard part followed afterwards; (re)learning the song and try to nail that solo as perfect as possible. Hours of slowing the song down, listening in mono to analyze the solo or mid-side to separate the riffs made me realize there’s much more going on than any tab you can find; there are small riff-details that I’ve never realized until I sat down and focused on the little details.
Ben and Jared are easily some of my favorite metal vocalists, and what better way to combine them in this song to share or love/respect for a band that influenced the three of us.
I hope you enjoy this cover and may the thing that’ll never happen, happen: a new Necrophagist album.”
