The fine folks behind much-loved metal blog MetalSucks are proud to announce that they will be working with up-and-coming New Jersey progressive death metallers The Binary Code to release the band’s debut full-length, 'Suspension of Disbelief.' Engineered by Paulie Cutri & The Binary Code’s own Jesse Zuretti, the record will be a digital-only release and is due to drop December 15, 2009, and features a bang-up mixing job courtesy of Kevin Antreassian (Number Twelve Looks Like You, Knife the Glitter).
The Binary Code have been tearing it up all across the Garden State since 2004, self-releasing a string of demos and playing countless shows with the likes of Decapitated, Necrophagist, the Red Chord, Converge, Pig Destroyer, Between the Buried and Me, Cannibal Corpse, and Despised Icon up and down the East Coast. Their punishing blend of death metal ferocity, jazzy experimentation, progressive exploration, multihued atmospheres, and hardcore aggression has already won them considerable acclaim as much as their jaw-dropping technical proficiency and dizzying musical skill have made heads spin. Name-checking Meshuggah and Gojira as often as they rep Opeth and Between the Buried and Me, and adding in their own unique interpretations and influences along the way, these Jersey boys are poised to become new leaders in the field of modern American death metal. This is tech-death with SOUL.
MetalSucks co-honcho Vince Neilstein commented, “We are extremely proud to have The Binary Code's "Suspension of Disbelief" as the first-ever official MetalSucks digital musical release. It's not that we're looking to get into the record label field... we most certainly aren't. It's that The Binary Code are so fucking good that we felt we had to do anything necessary to bring this band to the public. The precision, soul, musical prowess and astonishing power of their live shows are what drew us to The Binary Code in the first place, so we're psyched that "Suspension of Disbelief" captures all of that energy on record.”
The Binary Code guitarist and graphic designer Jesse Zuretti added, “After nearly a year, we are extremely excited to announce that we'll finally be releasing our first official album exclusively through our favorite, and most excellent metal news herald, Metal Sucks. New, as well as re-recorded songs, will be featured on the digital album, entitled, "Suspension of Disbelief". We couldn't be more grateful for the confidence invested in our music by the MS emperors.”
