Available for pre-order over at bandcamp, Kansas City Speed Thrash quintet Hellevate are  now streaming a second single “Dagon” from EP “The Purpose is Cruelty” due out 14th January.

Vocalist Robert Browne explains: “Two of my favorite Lovecraft stories are Dagon and The Cats of Ulthar, and I always wanted to write about both.

We wanted the song to be heavy and chaotic, a gradual conscious dissolution of sanity, and we accomplished that. Don’t go exploring mysterious smelly islands”
