Hadal Maw – Australian Death-Metal Masters Release Cannibal Corpse’s “Scourge of Iron” Cover Version

Melbourne-based death-metal heavyweights Hadal Maw have just released a cover version of Cannibal Corpse‘s crushing anthem “Scourge Of Iron” from the band’s 2012 album “Torture”.

The cover version is now playing at this location and is also available as free download at the band’s bandcamp page here.

The band had this to say about this Cannibal Corpse version: “Cannibal Corpse are true masters of the genre, always delivering infectious riffs that level bands half their age. I grew up on CC and everything from the outrageous lyrics, crushing live shows and that startling album art made it a death metal event to collect and attend. Scourge of Iron has always stayed firm in my pre show pump up play list, a phenomenal hook and great windmilling soundtrack. From the moment that riff kicks in… I challenge you not to headbang along with a shit eating grin.”

Ever since their inception in 2012, Hadal Maw have been moving forward gradually and steadily, developing a solid and loyal fan base. The band have toured consistently on their acclaimed releases “Senium” from 2014, “OLM” from 2017 and “Charlatan” from 2018, supporting acts such as ArchspireDecapitatedSuffocation, Thy Art is MurderAnaal NathrakhThe Black Dahlia Murder, Aborted and Beyond Creation  as well as breaking into the international touring circuit, playing eleven countries across Europe in 2019 alongside renowned bands Aversions CrownPsycroptic and Within Destruction.
After seething and conjuring during the Covid-19 lock-downs, Hadal Maw returned in late 2021 with their most vicious material to date, “Oblique Order”, a four-track EP that delves further into the more visceral aspect of their sound and composition while maintaining the technical wizardry that the band established on previous releases.
