Chicago based brutal death metal faction Like Rats have debuted the first single from their upcoming new album, II. “Grief Incarnate” is now streaming and you can check out that track of sonic brutality down below courtesy of Invisible Oranges.

From The Press Release
As Southern Lord prepares for the March release of II — the sophomore LP from eradicating, Chicago-based, death metal horde LIKE RATS, founded by members of Weekend Nachos — its initial single has been expended through a premiere of the album’s final track, “Grief Incarnate.”
The song comes through an exclusive debut at Invisible Oranges and partner BrooklynVegan to infiltrate the masses on multiple levels, issuing, “Calling to mind their contemporaries in Black Breath, LIKE RATS turn their focus to offering their own furious hardcore-inflected version of the crushing death metal of the likes of Entombed, Obituary, and Death. ‘Grief Incarnate’ is a crusher of a riff-delivery device, a consistent head-bobber of the highest order.”
