Friday: Slice the Cake - The Exile Part II: The City of Destruction

     I feel like I would be remiss if I don't jump on the cult of the new bandwagon a little bit for your belated Friday song, simply because the latest from online three-man deathprog band Slice the Cake is beastly and deserves your attention if it hasn't already had it.

     Slice the Cake's upcoming record Odyssey to the West isn't quite out yet, but they've been dropping hints for a bit now, including some tastes of new music, and now we've got another monolithic single to sink our teeth into.

     "The Exile Part II: The City of Destruction" is more or less what you might expect from Slice the Cake, in the best possible way: fast and furious death metal, with proggy veins and atmospheric melodies on the side. This latest single, combined with all the other tastes we've had so far, points to Odyssey to the West being an absolute monster of an album, maybe finally garnering Slice the Cake the kind of widespread acclaim they increasingly deserve.
