Today, I’m bringing you some new music from Northern metal quintet Sworn Amongst who have recently announced the details of their brand new album ‘Under A Titan Sky’. You can check out the video for, ‘Wraith’, the first single taken from that EP below.
The single is a true behemoth of a track from the off with chugging guitar riffs and a thumping drum beat, we are thrown straight into this one quite forcefully. The screaming authoritive vocals command the track throughout verse, chorus and verse well remaining a reliable constant in a wall of noise. The fast guitar playing along with its fuzzy, chugging nature makes for a nice touch of choas alongside the quick, pounding drums and crashing cymbal hits. Lovers of the heavier end of the musical spectrum will adore this modern take on traditional metal music making their album a must listen for many after the strength of this single.
The new album is currently streaming on the Terrorizer website now after it’s recent release and in the build up to the release of the new single and title track which features on the magazine’s cover mount CD. The new full length release is a further step into the spotlight for the band with a focus on improving and refining their sound, taking inspiration from the likes of After The Burial, Lamb of God and Upon A Burning Body.
Here is what drummer Jonny Harper had to say about the new album; “We’ve left behind our tenuous thrash roots and have fused together a multitude of genres, creating a unique formula of our own with this album… ‘Under A Titan Sky’ is armed to the teeth with ball crunching riffage and grooves, hypersonic solos, soaring vocals and bludgeoning bass lines!”
The band will be touring this month in support of Belial from June 15th in Swansea at The Scene through to 18th June at Bridgewater in Cobblestones. These dates go hand in hand with festival appearances for them this summer at UK Tech Metal Fest and Mammothfest, both of which will be the band’s debut appearances there. A tour in October and November will finish the band’s 2016 off in style I’m sure, check out their website for more tour details.
