Track Premiere: Varego – ‘The Abstract Corpse’


Italian progressive rockers Varego are preparing to drop their third album, I Prophetic, in February. With its release in just over two months, the band have revealed, in addition to the album’s title, the first single and video for I Prophetic, “Abstract Corpse.”

The proggy, sometimes-psychedelic sludge pairs well with the video, which has a retro feel in its production.

“We’re so excited to reveal the first details of our forthcoming album. This one represents for us a huge goal of our history, celebrating our first decade. This first single is the sum-up of our actual influences, that generate our particular sound made of heavy sonorities, progressive pursuits and Sludge drifts. ‘The Abstract Corpse’ is the song that today represents Varego at its best, with its tempo changes, compelling vocal lines and guitars ridings, we could
not be more happy!”

Hear it for yourself below. I Prophetic is out on February 15 via Argonauta.
