While much of the modern era of death metal is chided for not having a signature sound, groups like Dischordia have continued to thrive by building their own mold bit by bit since their inception in 2010. Drawing inspiration from such forward-thinking metal heavyweights as Decapitated, Gorguts, Meshuggah, and The Dillinger Escape Plan, Oklahoma City's Dischordia brings a fresh perspective to the progressive metal scene by combining tried-and-true US death metal brutality with far-flung ideas from a multitude of global influences.

After reaching new heights on their 2016 album Thanatopsis, the group recently announced Binge/Purge, an ambitious two-song effort clocking in at just over 24-minutes between two multi-part songs that stretch the band's writing and playing to a whole new level. The EP will see release on Friday, June 15th. Esteemed scene veteran Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice) was tapped to work his magic on Binge/Purge and expertly handled the releases Mixing and Mastering.

Today the band partnered with NoCleanSinging to premiere an extended 4-minute excerpt of "Binge", in lieu of the traditional standalone single format. Similar to how lengthy excerpts as premiere launches for the recent Gorguts EP was handled.

Comments NoCleanSinging regarding today's launch of "Binge" (excerpt):

"The complete extravaganza of "Binge" tops the 11-minute mark. It is a magnificent, mind-melting mini-concerto of menace, madness, and merciless marauding. Through its intricate - indeed, labyrinthine - plotting, it becomes a sonic kaleidoscope, the rapidly moving parts constantly changing and continuously setting off fireworks in the listener's mind, providing an enormously electrifying, non-stop thrill-ride.

The band's progressive-minded inclinations are given free rein, and turbocharged energy. Tempos and time signatures change in an eye-blink; the rhythm section jackhammers, jolts, jars, and batters, while engaging in ingenious (and complex) interplay both with themselves and with the guitarists, who roil the mind with rapidly veering fretwork, bursts of swirling and spiraling dissonant melody, and eruptions of feverish note flurries.

Just as bewildering as these high-speed acrobatics prove to be, the song is also a serious mauler, loaded with pavement-cracking demolition work, thanks in part to doses of jagged bass gouging, skull-splintering drum assaults, and bestial vocal roaring and shrieking."

Dischordia guitarist Keeno comments on Binge/Purge:

"Binge/Purge is a modern take on Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy within our own political-cultural system. We enjoy telling stories with our music. Thanatopsis was a new level for us stylistically in searching for our sound. Binge/Purge builds on that progress and allows us to stretch our skills within a concept EP. "
