Last year, Vio-Lence released a digital single, “California Uber Alles” (a cover of the Dead Kennedys classic), via Metal Blade Records. After giving fans a taste of what to expect, the band have announced their upcoming EP: Let The World Burn – their first original release since Nothing To Gain in 1993 – set for release in early 2022 via Metal Blade Records.
During their August 6 concert at Strummer’s in Fresno, Calif., The band performed the new song “Upon Their Cross”. Check it out below.
Let The World Burn was recorded with Juan Urteaga at Trident Studios in Pacheco, California, with mixing provided by Tue Madsen.
Sean Killian (vocals) comments: “Life is meant to be lived and during this lifetime you have the opportunity to truly create memories for yourself and for the people who share the same time on this planet as you. . For 33 years, a creation called Eternal Nightmare has created memories for people around the world. Now it’s time to make some new memories in 2021, and Vio-Lence has now done it for me, and I hope for you too. This resurrection started in 2019 with a simple text that read: “Let’s make a show”. At that point, these 5 original songs started. I am very proud of the new music that we have created, and we are fortunate to have worked with some very creative people. Juan Urteaga, who managed to push the band to the brink of insanity to capture the intensity that we as a band have always brought to people through our music and live performances. Tue Madsen put a special touch on our unique mania and brought raw perfection to our sound. Nothing too polished here, unless shards of the glass and broken razor blades are what you consider polished. I love creating, and we hope your heads explode when you hear the new Vio-Lence. Thanks to everyone involved, and especially Metal Blade Records, for giving Vio-Lence the opportunity to wow you. “
Vio-Lence was born in 1985 in the birthplace of thrash metal: the East Bay Area of San Francisco. With a fierce mix of blazing guitar riffs, relentless rhythm and ultra-aggressive vocal style, they have an unmatched intensity in metal. After their split at the end of 1993, their music and heritage still attracted metalheads around the world. A return to live performances began in mid-April 2019 and they haven’t looked back.
Stay tuned for more on Let The World Burn, to come.
