On February 10, up-and-coming death/thrash metallers Schizophrenia will release their brand new tribute EP “Chants Of The Abyss”. “Chants Of The Abyss” is no ordinary EP, instead the new release of the Antwerp four-piece features six cover songs and personal interpretations of timeless classics by cult acts such as Slayer, Judas Priest, Mistfits, Exodus, GBH and Morbid Angel. Bands that paved the way for many out there, shaped an entire scene and whose songs we all know and cherish all too well!

After the release of the first two singles “Maze Of Torment” (Morbid Angel) and “Bullet” (Misfits), the Belgian metallers of Schizophrenia follow up today with the next track – their very own interpretation of “Necrophiliac” by thrash icons SLAYER! The track comes with a brand new music video, which you can watch here:


Vocalist and bassist Ricky Mandozzi comments:

Slayer has always been one of our main influences so it was an easy choice to pay tribute to them. We did it by covering a song from an album, at times underrated, but that embodies the definition of extreme metal. So here is our take on a song that we feel deserves more recognition due to its morbid lyrics, razor-sharp riffs and pounding drumbeats. Recording this one has been exciting  and challenging at the same time, especially for Lorenzo who had the chance to cover  another one of the most influential drummers, Dave Lombardo, along with Pete Sandoval from Morbid Angel not simply replicating their drum lines but giving his own take on the drums. We hope you’ll enjoy the outcome!
