USURPRESS New track 'The Iron Gates Will Melt' unveiled

USURPRESS album2018

Prog-influenced Swedish death metallers USURPESS unveil a new song titled 'The Iron Gates Will Melt'. The track comes from the band's fourth studio album 'Interregnum', set to be released on February 23rd in Europe and April 27th in North America on Agonia Records.

 

Listen to the song below:

 

 

This time, core members Stefan Pettersson (vocals, lyrics), Påhl Sundström (guitars, music) and Daniel Ekeroth (bass, music) are joined by jazz-fusion drummer Stefan Hildman and ambient/trance keyboardist Erik Sundström, and the outcome astounded even the band itself. 'Interregnum' can be described as 'an unholy mix between Camel and Bolt Thrower, that somehow works flawlessly', so be prepared for something quite out of the ordinary. And out of this world.

 

The album was recorded and mixed in the world-renowned studio Dugout Productions (Soilwork, Behemoth, In Flames, Dark Funeral, etc.) in the band’s hometown of Uppsala, Sweden.

 

USURPRESS have made the following statement about the new album: 'This time we wanted to challenge the establish dogmas and indeed our own predetermined ideas of what makes death metal sound like death metal. We have taken notes from the history of heavy guitar driven music before the times of death metal, in fact; before the times of heavy metal. We have taken inspiration from the hard rock and prog rock movements of the early seventies and put a heavy death twist on it. For those who feel like retching at the sound of this; we can assure you that this is by all means a death metal album and not some silly retro 70-ties throwback 5 years too late for the trend. It’s simply Usurpress but slower, heavier and way more complex.'
