Continuum Releasing The Hypothesis April 21st

Bay Area death metallers Continuum will be releasing their debut full length The Hypothesis on April 21, 2015 via Unique Leader Records.

The brain child of lead guitarist/composer Chase Fraser (Decrepit Birth, Animosity), Continuum was forged in 2009 and features the current working lineup of Fraser alongside guitarist Ivan Munguia (Arkaik, Deeds Of Flesh), vocalist Riley McShane (Son Of Aurelius), bassist Nick Willbrand (Flesh Consumed) and drummer Spencer Edwards (Son Of Aurelius). Together the Continuum collective provides a sound that rocks the very foundation of modern death metal.

Recorded mainly by Fraser with additional tracking and mixing by Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Fallujah, All Shall Perish et al.) at Castle Ultimate Studios, The Hypothesis delivers a scathing assemblage of engaging and abrasive compositions steeped conceptually in the mysteries of the infinite and the early but no-less-relevant and unsolved theories of the “continuum hypothesis.” This hypothesis was studied by a number of mathematicians including Georg Cantor in 1878, many of whom committed suicide before reaching a conclusion to the unfathomable question of infinity. This theme is brought to life by the lyrics of Mcshane, the artwork of Raymond Swanland (Deeds of Flesh, Psycroptic, Suffocation), and the mathematical compositions of Fraser.

The Hypothesis Track Listing:
01. Hypothesis: A Profound Discovery
02. The Epiphany
03. Hypothesis: Evolution
04. Absolute Zero
05. The Awakened Creator
06. Wasps In The History Of The Weak
07. Perspective
08. Where The Worlds Were Left
09. A Surreal Descent
10. The Steppes To Ascension
