Cold-blooded Russian sludgers release «Prey for the end» - first single off their upcoming long play.

The fatally spirited, heavily pounding anthem of perpetual despair is cut in half by a blazing solo dissolving into the black marching void of the song's bridge.

There's no hope at the end, no glory in between, no chance for a fresh start, only the everlasting grinding eternity slowly eating it's way into the compulsively regenerating pulp of deteriorating biomass. Subversively unconсerned, subconsciously self-obsessed, subliminally prepared to be the perfect offering, prey for the End.

Stylistically marking the territory of down tempo thrash in the verses the song switches gears in punchy choruses followed by wayward double guitar passages unexpectedly conscious of the NWBHM glory. It's towards the very end of the track where Montezuma finally starts to unpack their more likely tools of the sludge-stoner trade reminding the listener of the band's port of departure.
