COCYTE – Full Length Album Details Revealed

Death horde COCYTE turned heads with their Suffocate Now demo in 2011, quickly followed by the New Breath EP in 2012 and follow up Asylum 2013.

With a steady release history augmented with regular appearances across a multidude of venues in major European cities, todays incarnation of Cocyte is a well focused outfit, polished and oiled an inch from its death. Testament to that is the band’s latest release and first full-length The Human Disease, mixed by Christian Carvin and mastered by Alan Douches (Carnifex, Suicide Silence, Cannibal Corpse, Nile)...
