As one of the younger bands in the scene, Undeath have already proven themselves an incredible force of crushing death metal. Undeath released their debut studio album Lesions of a Different Kind in 2020, and this upcoming April, they’ll release their sophomore effort, It’s Time…to Rise from the Grave.

This past week, the band released a lyric video for their newest single “Necrobionics;” if you happen to be a metalhead who also has a love for old-school first-person video game shooters, you’re probably going to find the lyric video to be a gem. That’s because the video features footage from that of Doom – the godfather of all first-person shooters.

Regarding the song, Undeath guitarist Kyle Beam shared the following:

“’Necrobionics’ is the defacto mosh track off It’s Time…. When we drop this one live, it’s going to leave the pit looking much like the chorus says, with ‘Piles of death, corpses en masse.’ The track’s lyrics draws a lot of aesthetic influence from the early Doom/Quake games, with the video paying homage to some of my favorite pastimes.”

You can check out the lyric video for “Necrobionics” below, as well as pre-order It’s Time…to Rise from the Grave here.
