SCHIZOPHRENIA covered Slayer’s ‘Necrophiliac’

Belgium thrash metal force Schizophrenia announced an EP with cover versions for February 10th, 2023. After having unveiled ‘Maze of Torment’ from Morbid Angel the band launched with Slayer’s ‘Necrophiliac’ a next single.

Vocalist and bassist Ricky Mandozzi comments: “Slayer has always been one of our main influences so it was an easy choice to pay tribute to them. We did it by covering a song from an album, at times underrated, but that embodies the definition of extreme metal. So here is our take on a song that we feel deserves more recognition due to its morbid lyrics, razor-sharp riffs and pounding drumbeats. Recording this one has been exciting  and challenging at the same time, especially for Lorenzo who had the chance to cover  another one of the most influential drummers, Dave Lombardo, along with Pete Sandoval from Morbid Angel not simply replicating their drum lines but giving his own take on the drums. We hope you’ll enjoy the outcome!”

The complete tracklist of the EP looks like this:

  1. Necrophiliac (Slayer cover)
  2. Maze Of Torment (Morbid Angel cover)
  3. Metal Meltdown (Judas Priest cover)
  4. Bullet (Misfits cover)
  5. Strike Of The Beast (Exodus cover)
  6. Race Against Time (GBH cover)
