The band comment of ‘Sungazer’: “We’re surrounded by this smoke screen lifestyle, where people base their comparisons of others through a diamond lens that leaves all the sh*t in the shadows…’Sungazer’ touches on that. Lyrically, it’s about becoming fixated on pursuits or people that ultimately have a negative impact on your mental state, to the point where you become cut off and disassociated with everyone around you. The distraction tactics we take on to escape from that, only to find yourself losing sight of the things that truly matter in your life and by then all the time has passed. We thought having the song set on another planet would be a cool way to symbolise that feeling of being cut off and alone.”
The song was produced by the band and mixed by Simone Pietroforte (Distant), with artwork by Jason Peppiatt (Psycroptic).

Featuring former members of Heart of a Coward, Abhorrent Decimation, Martyr Defiled, Nervecell and Surfaces, Viscera formed in 2019.
Inspired by the seminal 90s & 00s bands – notably Pantera, Meshuggah, At The Gates, The Black Dahlia Murder and Killswitch Engage –Viscera combine these influences with modern tech death and deathcore flavours. Combined with a potent blend of watertight syncopation, Viscera are undoubtedly a powerful emerging force to be reckoned with.
In their time the band have toured with Decapitated, Ingested, and Lorna Shore.
