Hot News – Thrall to release new album on Moribund; reveal title, tracklisting; upcoming shows

October / November 2011 – a year after their debut release on MORIBUND RECORDS, Away From the Haunts of Man, THRALL will unleash their virulent second album, Vermin to the Earth. MORIBUND will release Vermin worldwide, with the exceptions of Australia and New Zealand, where Obsidian Records will release it.

Vermin documents the metamorphosis of THRALL from a sanguinary studio project to a formidable live entity that now includes Leigh Ritson (ex Disseminate) on bass and Ramez Bathish (ex Whitehorse / ABC Weapons) on second guitar. THRALL built their live reputation on punishing volume and an atmosphere of menace.

Vermin delivers a unique blend of old-school black metal and hypnotic void-worship. Songs range from bile-soaked mid-paced anthems (“Vermin to the Earth / Oblivion”) to desolate lurching dirges (“Plague of Man”) to blasting suicidal elegies (“Vita Vacuus Voluntas”). The new album is more: cohesive, hefty, solemn and yet more spacious than THRALL’s debut, Away from the Haunts of Men. Vermin is a requiem to a cursed species. It advocates the expiration of the reign of homo sapiens and heralds the post-human era.

A preview track from the album will be added to the MORIBUND RECORDS website in the coming months.

“This album was written live and tracked very fucking quickly. In my opinion, Vermin is more evocative and cathartic than Haunts was. Those who are meant to unlock the spell of this album, will – those who aren’t, will not.” – Tom Void

“Vermin maintains a very live sound even in the studio, and I think it will surprise many people who know the first album as to just how different this sophomore is.” – Em Støy.

Vermin was recorded across two hemispheres and continents. Drums were recorded in April 2010 by Ippei Suda (known for his work with Corrupted) at LM Studio, Osaka, Japan. Guitars, bass and vocals were recorded by Trent Griggs June – July 2010 at The Gate, Margate, Tasmania. The album was mixed by Trent Griggs August 2010 – June 2010 at The Gate, Margate, Tasmania. In July, the album will be mastered by Jack the Bear (Tony Mantz) at Deluxe Mastering, Melbourne, Victoria.

Old school metal masters Forbidden are smashing their way into Australia for the very first time and will headline this year’s ‘High Voltage Festival’. Set to play shows in support of their latest album ‘Omega Wave’, Forbidden fans have been waiting over a decade since their last offering, and Australian fans have waited over 20 years for them to make their way Down Under. Kings of the second wave of the Bay Area Thrash scene, Forbidden were most popular during the late ‘80s and early ‘90s for their own brand of technical thrash metal infusing odd signature timing with melodies, making them one of the most original metal bands of all time. Full festival line up includes FORBIDDEN (USA), INTERNAL NIGHTMARE, KING PARROT, IN MALICE’S WAKE, THRALL, A MILLION DEAD BIRDS LAUGHING, CLAG, ELECTRIK DYNAMITE, BEYOND TERROR BEYOND GRACE and EARTH.
