Here it is, our first taste of new Mastodon in 2021! The band is now streaming their new single “Forged By Neron” off the upcoming DC Comics series “Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack.” Stram the track below:
The song is a straightforward rock track with a huge chorus, crunchy riffs, and a short runtime that pretty much demands the repeat button be pushed. For those unfamiliar, Neron is a demon that appears in a handful of DC Comics stories.
“We are super excited and honored to be part of the Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack! We’ve all been fans of DC Comics and the Batman universe since we were kids, so it really means a lot for us to be able to add something to that world,” said Mastodon drummer and vocalist Brann Dailor.
“Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack” is out June 18 digitally and July 16 physically. The soundtrack is the accompaniment to the DC Comics Dark Nights: Death Metal comic series, featuring contributions from bands like Chelsea Wolfe, Carach Angren, and Greg Puciato.
