See Death-Metal Act Petrification Create Depraved Digital Nightmare in New Video

Portland-based band's latest song "Technological Assimilation" appears on forthcoming LP 'Hollow of the Void'

Petrification can mean one of two things: a state of extreme fear or when organic matter turns to stone. In this case, it could be both. 

Portland-based OSDM outfit Petrification is the personification of terrifying, taking influence from gods like Autopsy in their hideous, pus-filled take on genre. The approach is nothing less than Medusa-level ugly: using the classic Finnish DM sound and incorporating in slam and punk influences to create their own take. The band is clearly obsessed with the darker side of futurism as well, judging by their latest video for new single "Technological Assimilation." Incorporating skittish live clips in with Matrix-y flashes of code, the end result is a Luddite's tale of caution, and a damn good video to boot. Check it out above.

"Technological Assimilation" will appear on the band's forthcoming Hollow of the Void, which you can preorder at Sentient Ruin Laboratories (Vinyl/Tape, USA),  Memento Mori (CD, World), To The Death Records (Vinyl, Europe) and Dawnbreed Records (Vinyl/tape Europe). Order yours and catch them on the road in May during their campaign to Maryland Deathfest. See full dates below.
