Polyphia guitarist Tim Henson has dropped a short clip of selected acoustic and electric parts from the band's new song, Ego Death.

The recent single, taken from the band's forthcoming album, Remember That You Will Die, arrived last week and saw guitarists Scott LePage and Henson tip their caps to 80s shred theatrics and classic guitar styles. Steve Vai also features in the song, contributing some stunning whammy work that somehow threads gracefully between their lines. Needless to say, it broke the shred-web and has already gained some three million views on YouTube.
