After announcing that their new album will be released on May 24th, today the Italian metal band NEURASTY releases, through Volcano Records & Promotion, the track “Cruel Instinct.” It’s a powerful and jarring journey into the deepest spirit of humanity, where manipulation and control subjugate with violence – a perfect metaphor for the modernity that Neurasty offers us in the almost five minutes of the song. 

“Cruel Instinct” is available on all streaming platforms and on YouTube, accompanied by a lyric video that enhances the vocal interplay of clean yet aggressive lines from vocalist Viviana Schirone, intertwining with the sharp screams of guitarist-vocalist Gabriele Vellucci. All of this is well supported by a rhythmic section that never misses a beat, showcasing the experience and skills of the well-known Silvio Assaiante (Daemonia & Claudio Simonetti) and David Folchitto (Fleshgod Apocalypse).  

NEURASTY is a female-fronted metal band that has already gained a certain notoriety and respect in the Italian underground scene through intense concerts and meticulously crafted shows. But now, the group is ready to take the leap by releasing their first full-length album titled “Identity Collapse”. 

“Identity Collapse” aims to be, according to the band’s intentions, a sonic journey into the deepest psychological and somatic consequences of trauma on individuals, a highly topical theme that imbues the debut album of a promising band with significant meaning and value. In the coming weeks, there will be further previews. For now, here are the titles of the eight tracks contained in the album.

1. Lies
2. Guilt Dejection
3. Out of these chains
4. Insanity
5. Cruel instinct
6. Social Grade
7. Burst in me 
8. Haunted by Death
