Philadelphia's Varials have officially released their split with Vicious Embraceand to set it off we're premiering the former's music video for "Bite." The track is pure ignorant mosh metal, born in a cauldron of rage and testosterone. Absolution is live on Spotify and for streaming/purchase on Bandcamp with the band's back catalog. Merch is also online at Cold Cuts.

Drummer Sean Rauchut had this to say about the new songs and brawling basement shoot:

"This split shows a more darker and creative side of our band. 'Bite' is one of the most aggressive raw sounding songs we have ever produced, and 'Iota' shows off more of the creative talent inside of the band. We have learned so much after being able to get some touring experience under our belt to grow as people and musicians. We shot the video at a hometown house venue. We really are blessed to have such an amazing scene at home."
