KILLING is warming up for what will be one of the thrash records of the year by presenting their new single and video “Legion Of Hate”. A thrashing anthem oozing with hatred, shredding all the way through, and ready to take the metal world by storm.
“Legion Of Hate” is taken from Killing debut album “Face The Madness”, probably the best Danish thrash metal record since “Excursion Demise” by Invocator and “By Inheritance” from Artillery.
“Legion Of Hate” is released today on all streaming services (listen here) and in an official video that can be seen in our media partners for its premiere.
Thrash has had so many waves, ups and downs that it’s almost impossible to trace back the whole story of the style. The fans, however, remain the same since a bands such as Slayer and Metallica developed a speed and more aggressive take to NWOBHM as a backlash against the Reagan-era conservationism and the pop culture that ruled the early 80’s. Killing is the product of just that. A bunch of kids raised to the sound of the classic thrash metal we all know, that made them pick up their instruments and want to thrash like their idols. To make a long story short, this is the back-bone of “Face The Madness”, the debut album of the Midtjylland fab-four that will simply be known as “one of the best thrash albums of the year 2021”
“Face The Madness” will be released in digital, LP, and CD formats by Mighty Music on 13th August 2021.
