Atlanta’s death metal outfit Dååth may be back in the studio and working on a new album, but that doesn’t mean they can’t put out a killer tune just to keep the fans satiated. Earlier today, they released a cover of Morbid Angel’s classic track “Where the Slime Live,” which you can hear in the clip below.
Guitarist Eyal Levi said it was fun to get to cover such an influential band and song.
“It’s funny to say this because ‘Where The Slime Live’ is a total classic, but I’ve been feeling like people have not been giving Trey and co their due for the massive impact they’ve had on the evolution of metal. Not that our version of this song is going to change the world, but if any Morbid Angel song deserves the modern treatment, it’s this one. Everything about it more than holds up and showcasing it in this fashion really illuminates how ahead of their time they were. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed learning and interpreting this BANGER of a song!”
Mixed and mastered by Dave Otero, the single also features a killer guest solo by none other than Revocation’s Dave Davidson, who said the song in question was an important one for him as a fan and as a performer.
“‘Where The Slime Live’ is one of my favorite Morbid tunes so I was stoked to be asked to lay down a solo for this killer cover. Trey has a very unique style so it was a cool challenge to tap into his vibe and let the lava flow so to speak. Hope y’all dig it!”
In addition to the new cover, the band announced that they’re back in the studio and working on their fifth full-length album. Once complete, it will be released via Metal Blade when it’s finished.
Given their time away from making music, Eyal said he was excited to see how this new record will pan out.
“I never thought I’d be able to say this, but we’re back in the studio to complete the new Dååth album, which by the way, is our heaviest album in at least 13 years.”
Finally, Metal Blade Records is reissuing the band’s 2007 debut The Hinderers on multiple vinyl sets. You can preorder some of those right now.
