Welcome to the sci-fi world of NEEDLESS. On “The Cosmic Cauldron”, the first digital single of the Hungarian young band taken from their upcoming sophomore album, their blend of melodic death/thrash metal, black metal atmospheres and progressive approach, reaches new heights. It’s an aggressive, fascinating piece of melodic metal, grabbing you by the throat with the technical licks and the flawless sci-fi concept that is the backbone of their upcoming studio offering, also entitled “The Cosmic Cauldron”.
About the song:
“This song is the fifth chapter of a grand journey through space and time, where humankind faces the heaviest burden of all: the gift of an interstellar relic “The Cosmic Cauldron.” By granting the state of homo deus, the new ruler is set to conquer and doom the universe once and for all. This is the birth of the Voidian.”
Needless was founded during the winter of 2004 in Dánszentmiklós, Hungary. The band started as a home project, and slowly evolved into an active group for the year 2014. Their music basically consists of traditional elements of melodic thrash and death metal with the atmospheric side of black metal with some progressive elements.
All mixed up into a fierce blend of aggression and ferocity, with mythical themes and nihilistic contemplations about humankind in the lyrics. In 2015 the band came up with their first accountable release called “The Dark Spirit of Ages” EP, which received critically positive feedback. After its release, Needless did several shows in its home country with bands like Aggression, Nervosa, Nuclear, Dew-Scented, and Flotsam And Jetsam.
“The Cosmic Cauldron” will be released in early 2022 via UPRISING! Records.
