Following suit from their 2016 “. . . to the Bone” full-length, MACABRA unearth three songs wrought with atmosphere in their 1990s analog-inspired approach, propelling the listener into bleak dimensions. Showcasing incredible cover artwork by Dan Seagrave, “Fragmented Self” is a must for any dedicated fan of old school death metal!
