(March 21st, 2018) – If you’ve been looking for the perfect of modern discord with older styles fo death metal, then we have good news: New Jersey death metal trio Replicant’s new album is the exact chaos you’ve been looking for. The tech-death metal extraordinaires officially premiered their hotly anticipated, achingly miserable forthcoming record Negative Life in full today via Metal Injection. Negative Life officially releases this Friday via PRC Music.
Negative Life harbors ill sentiment in a similar manner to that of their 2016 EP Worthless Desires: brooding, bloody. disastrous, and disturbing. Where Negative Life takes on a particularly dire progression is in their contention, which comes through in these odd, gruesomely discordantly grooving riffs- something that Metal Injection liekly aptly defined as ‘skronky,’ for lack of any better adjective. This systematic newfound approach to their pseudo-cataclysmic songwriting, coupled with their reliance on old-school death metal inspirations and a denser depth of instrumentation, packs for a whallop of an album that is all at once far too haunting and daunting.
The problem is that it is nearly impossible to hit the ‘pause’ button- each captivating element inspires intrigue to the point of nearly losing sanity.
Negative Life was engineered by guitarist Peter Lloyd at One Stone Recording and mastered by Alan Douches (Cannabis Corpse, Tombs, Converge, Revocation) at West West Side Music.
Additionally, the band will bring their sonic chaos to the stage on several upcoming performances with more in the works as we speak. A slew of confirmed dates can be found below.
Negative Life will see release on CD via PRC Music and digitally by the band on March 23rd. Digital pre-orders can be found at the link below.

Set in a bleak atmosphere of filth, malaise, and decaying infrastructure, the New Jersey-based trio deliver despotic, depraveds and pummeling riffs – a grinding and grooving aural consequence of the industrial primordial swamp that defines their surroundings. Featuring current members of technical death metal band Dystrophy, Replicant is morbidly heavy, brutally extreme, and frighteningly dark.
