MetalSucks is now streaming the entire fourth LP by New York City-based trio Zevious, ‘Lowlands’, ahead of the album’s release through Nefarious Industries this Friday. The band, formed by a trio of musicians who also play in Dysrhythmia, Sabbath Assembly, Many Arms, Smother Party, and more, has also announced a hometown record release show for the album for September 7th.

‘Lowlands’ marks Zevious’ first effort for Nefarious Industries and offers a subtle change in direction from their previous two releases. On ‘Lowlands’, the band explores a hypnotic and more streamlined rhythmic approach while maintaining their abrasive edge with influences ranging from new-wave and 20th century composition to doom and black metal.

With their early stream of Zevious’ new LP MetalSucks offers in part, “the band continues to blur the lines between prog, jazz, and metal to create something likely to appeal to all fans of forward-thinking music, regardless of the genre. At no point does the band achieve, say, a Psyopus-level of heaviness, but they’ve definitely got the mathcore gene for resisting conformity in favor of bravely exploring uncharted territory. Put more succinctly: you really need to check out ‘Lowlands’.”
