Monochromatic Black Releases New Single “Closing the Gates”

Long Island progressive tech-death metal band Monochromatic Black has revealed a video “Closing the Gates,” the first single from their forthcoming debut full-length album, Vicissitude.

“‘Closing The Gates’ is a song about cutting people off who are only involved to take advantage of you,” the band says. “The track utilizes chaotic interplay between instruments to portray a ‘dodging’ effect, as if one were to actively escape one’s grasp. It is composed with odd time signatures and modulated rhythms to exemplify the unknown yet familiar strife of dishonest people you may encounter with a hard and aggressive timbre on the overall spectrum.”
