Montreal deathcore act Despised Icon are about to put out their sixth full-length record and second since semi-retiring, and they’ve got a new track to dive into.
The band’s new song “Snake in the Grass” is a burly straight-forward deathcore track with plenty of pig squeals and breakdowns.
The new track marks the second single from the Quebecois deathcore OGs following their first single “Purgatory.” In case you haven’t heard that first song or seen the music video, check it out in the player below.
With the band hitting their hometown for a massive show tonight alongside plenty of other death metal heavy-hitters, it’s a no-brainer they wanted to drop new material to head into the weekend with.

The new track is a pretty standard old-school deathcore song with beefy breakdown riffs, ear-shattering pig squeals and some blast beats tossed in for good measure.
