Australian melodic tech death band Snake Mountain have returned with their latest single ‘Everliving’ which is set to be released digitally on March 27 ahead of their opening support slot for Fleshgod Apocalypse and Wolfheart.

The video for Everliving was directed by the band’s visual collaborator Kyle Watson from Counterfeit Films and features the members being abducted and experimented on by extraterrestrial invaders with sinister intentions.

The song was tracked by drummer Kristian Rousell and guitarist Jaymes Jackson (who also mixed) at the band’s studio and mastered by Paul Blakey from 12th and Vine Post.

Everliving is a dark and heavy groove-driven song that takes lyrical inspiration from one of the most terrifying characters in animation history, the mummified demon priest known as ‘Mumm-Ra the Everliving’ from Thundercats.

When I was young, one of the most horrifying things to me was the Mumm-Ra transformation scene in Thundercats, for an animated show about anthropomorphic heroes geared towards kids you had this very dark and demonic scene in every episode that has forever been burned into my generation’s mind. I’ve always been fascinated by the character and the pure evil he was consumed and driven by, he was the stuff of nightmares’ – says vocalist Nev Pearce.

Everliving is the first single from their upcoming EP ‘Villainous Part 1: Reverence’ and a glimpse at a larger project on the horizon that pays respect to the band’s past whilst preparing for the next evolutionary step in their musical journey.

Formed in 2015, Snake Mountain has collectively combined their influences of blast beats, heavy grooves, atmospheric melodies and 80’s and 90’s movie inspired lyrics to create their own unique sound and a high energy live experience.

In 2019 before the lockdown, Snake Mountain were selected to open for
ex-Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman and his band from Japan at their Brisbane show and they have been featured by YouTube sensation Ozzy Man Reviews, as he used Snake Mountain‘s single ‘The Burden’ in his video ‘Dodgy Australian Critters Swarm My Office! which has gained over 600k views.

Various members’ past projects have previously supported international bands such as Cradle Of Filth, Soilwork, Dissection, Dark Funeral and Cavalera Conspiracy to name a few, over their decade plus, spanning musical explorations.
