It’s been leading up to this for Lake Malice, their debut EP Post-Genesis. Spending the last few years carving themselves out as one of the UK’s most exciting heavy prospects, it’s been a hell of a journey so far. There’s been the glitchy chaos of “Blossom” to the terrifying euphoria of “Black Turbine“. The horror movie ferocity of “Magic Square” to the intergalactic pulses of “Bloodbath“. Every track builds up their varied and volatile catalogue. Combining the weirdness of nu-metal with the gripping intent of metalcore, they exist in their own lane. They also thrive within that lane too. And now, with their long-awaited debut EP, they look set to transcend all that they have already done.

You won’t have to wait long for “Post-Genesis“, as it will be arriving on October 27 via SO Recordings. It will feature the aforementioned “Black Turbine” and “Bloodbath” alongside the also previously-released “Start The Party“. It will also include “Blossom” as well, bringing this point of their journey to a head by going right back to where it began.

There are two new tracks included as well. One is “Power Game” and the other is “Mitsuko”, the latter you can hear now. It’s a song that strips things back to the wires with hyper-pop blips and crushing thuds. Its chaotic drum and bass is then through a heavy metal mesh, crafting a sound that is futuristic, unique and blistering in all the right ways.

The duo, Alice Lake and Blake Cornwall, had this to say about the song:

“Mitsuko is a deeply personal and intense torrent of ‘full-on rage’, dealing with the complexities of family values and raw emotions of a fragmented childhood. The title takes inspiration from the original ‘Battle Royale’ manga, where the character Mitsuko shares a similar struggle of family heartbreak and abandonment.”
