New Track: Man Must Die's "Hiding in the Plain Sight"

I'm a bit late to the party blogging about this because it's been out since the beginning of August, but I can assure you I made it a priority to give it a listen right when the band released it. Really, the dudes in Man Must Die are as strong as ever, though I think the new album will have huge a hurdle to jump to top No Tolerance for Imperfection, which totally fits into my category of most crushing albums of all time. That album is stellar, stellar slab of hardcore-influenced technical death metal and should be on anyone's listening list.

The new track called "Hiding in Plain Sight" looks to continue the typical Man Must Die sound, but it has more melodic hooks ala "Reflections (From Within)." I'm a-okay with that, too, because that track is one of my favorites from the previous album. However, it should be noted that the new track isn't ashamed to be openly political. Normally, I don't care for any type of political lyrics in my metal (and I suppose music in general), but, in this case, I'm willing to make an exception because the track is so good. Man Must Die is just one of those bands that isn't afraid to be blatantly open about their viewpoints. I wouldn't want it any other way because they probably wouldn't be the same band without that characteristic.

If you like the previous record, you're sure to like this track. It's a demo/preproduction, so try to listen without expectations. I'm sure the final product will be even sweeter.
