Track Premiere: Simulakra – ‘Follow the Flies’

Anyone with an ear for metal-tinged hardcore will like what Delaware bruisers Simulakra are putting down on their new LP, The Infection Spreads. The follow-up to 2019’s Tales From the Fevered SubconsciousThe Infection Spreads is a concept record that focuses on death and disease.

Today, Decibel shares “Follow the Flies,” the final track on the album. Featuring Year of the Knife vocalist Tyler Mullen, the two vocalists trade lines over pummeling riffs and an extended mosh part at the end of the track. It may only be their second song since 2019, but Simulakra have shown that the hype behind their demo and EP weren’t a fluke.

“I wanted to write a song that was constant back and fourth parts between two vocalists since I barely see it happen ever,” explains vocalist Dom Pabon. “The track is a story of someone finding their dead relative a little too late and their remains are being tainted by flies.”

Listen to “Follow the Flies” below. The Infection Spreads is out on May 24 via DAZE.
