Electronic trio death's dynamic shroud has returned with a new song ("Judgment Bolt," which you can listen to below) and a new album on 100% Electronica, title and 2022 release date to-be-determined.

The vaporwave trio was founded in 2014 by Tech Honors, James Webster and Keith Rankin, aka the Columbus musician behind Giant Claw, which released one of our favorite albums of 2021.

Since forming, death's dynamic shroud has been incredibly prolific, particularly in the last five years, releasing at least 15 projects since 2017, the Fader reported, though the three original members have not all appeared on the same project in that time. "Judgment Bolt" changes that, bringing the three together for a pixelated, dancefloor-shaking blur of digitized beats, trippy orchestral passages and mutated vocals that stoke excitement for the full-length to come.

Give the song a spin below.
