We have released our new single / video 'Ultima Hypocrita' featuring Japanese virtuoso guitarist Yo Onityan. This is the first new music heard from their upcoming album A Hill To Die Upon, out 28th May via Unique Leader.
The video script for 'Ultima Hypocrita' was written by guitarist Marvin Kessler and filmed just onets week before its release. The song is closed with a musical and emotional highlight, a guitar solo performed and written by Japanese guitarist Yo Onityan, who also played in Rings Of Saturn.
"Founded in 2016 in Germany, the quintet have established themselves as one of the most exciting bands on the extreme underground, touring Europe with Rings Of Saturn and Nekrogoblikon in 2019 and North America with Signs Of The Swarm and Disentomb. Now with two albums under their belts, including 2019's critically acclaimed Inferis, produced by Sky Van Hoff (Rammstein, Kreator), they have become well known for their signature blackened breakdowns, blast beats, epic arrangements and slamming brutality.
Mental Cruelty will further explore their sound on new album A Hill To Die Upon, which heralds a new era for the band."

Lucca Schmerler - Vocals
Marvin Kessler - Lead Guitar
