Starting today, Metal Hammer Germany is streaming 'Rat King' (out October 11th), the second album of Swedish extreme death metallers As You Drown, in it's entirety via their website! The album stream is live from October 3rd to October 10th! Surf over to Metal Hammer at this location to check out the album!
Vocalist Henrik Blomqvist commented on 'Rat King': "We are delighted to finally be finished with the recording of our second album, entitled 'Rat King', which will be out in October via Metal Blade. The album - mixed and mastered by Plec at Panic Room Studios - features artwork by Mark Riddick, as well as by Sven de Caluwe of the mighty Aborted, and nine epic songs of skull crushing death metal mayhem and darkness. It feels like we've taken everything we do to a whole new level on this one, and we can't wait to get out on the road and play these songs live. This new material is intense, although at the same time a lot more varied and dynamic than what we've done in the past. Keep your eyes and ears open friends. Death! Destruction!! Goats!"
