We hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday, doing whatever it is you do! Just over 2 weeks until 'Bedlam' drops and we reignite the war engine and get back to playing shows. However, before then, the title track of the album is now streaming over at Decibel Magazine! What a freaken honor. Go check it out.
"Joel Grind's always got his mitts in some killer project, and this North Carolina death-thrash trio is no exception."
We're still taking pre-orders over at https://suppressivefire.bandcamp.com. And there's been some pretty rad feedback from the album so far featured below. All pre-orders help us fund new merch and ordering more expensive CDs, we'll also be shipping them with these rad glow-in-the-dark picks!
'Bedlam' releases in just over a month but some cool words have been coming in from reviewers and we also have another track 'Ironsights' streaming over at Friedhof Magazine. The page is in Espanol, but Google translator works well enough. Besides, just scroll down for the music!
Our album release show will be 1/14 at Slim's in Raleigh with our friends Eldritch Horror and Temple Crusher.
We finally have the final master of the album and it'll be out in January! It's also on our Bandcamp if you want to grab it early. That's the music tab to the left.
Bedlam features 11 nasty tracks and clocks in around 44 minutes.
“Thy Flesh Consumed”
“Nazi Face Melter”
“Crucify the Kings”
We've been happily enjoying some down time between shows, working on more riffs and preparing for the release of our album. Joel Grind of Toxic Holocaust is taking care of the final production stage so we're just sitting back and waiting for him to finish destroying New Zealand and Australia.
We'll be again joining forces with our brothers in thrash, All Hell, for our first run to Richmond. 3:33 and Narrow Grave will be on the bill as well set to take place 10/16 at 25 watt. Should be a killer show, All Hell's new album drops that weekend and it sounds KILLER. At least what's been posted. Check them out for your own good.
Then we've got two dates back to back with our friends Death of Kings (Atlanta). Friday 10/23 we'll be in Raleigh pounding Slims with Hellrad (Philly) and our local friends Agony Divine. Slim's is always a good time, so mark that on your calendars. We'll be following down I-85 with Death of Kings afterwards to join Marrow of Earth and Neverfall down at the Radio Room in Greenville SC. Really stoked for this one as well as I've only heard the room gets insane. So yeah, 3 sweet shows, one spooky month.
Had such a blast last week and it was great playing Kings finally! That's been literally a bucketlist check since we started. Fantastic venue, excellent sound, some circle pit action. Fuck yes, you guys rule. Also really enjoyed playing with Genocide Pact, Skemata, and Lesser Life. Last Thurs we mozied to The Cave to meet our friends in Sonic Pulse and American Empire. Had a minor catastrophe of Sonic Pulse's van breaking down 2 miles from the venue but grabbed them up, the van got towed and fixed and we had an excellent show.
Well, our tracks now are in the capable hands of Joel Grind. Let's see what he can do with them! Release show will be in October (date to be announced soon).
Two shows immediately coming up- Hopscotch Music Festival, we'll be playing Thursday 9/10 at the Pour House during the day show with the Primitive Ways gang and 9/14 we'll be playing Local 506 in Raleigh with Gorbash, Lord Dying and TOXIC HOLOCAUST!
