Upcoming release: "Idol"

Release date: Fri, Sep 28 2018, US Fri, Sep 28 2018

HORRENDOUS have premiered a crushing new track taken of their forthcoming new album 'Idol'. The record is slated for release on September 28th, 2018. Listen to the new track below.

Check out the new song via Revolver Magazine.

HORRENDOUS comment: "Devotion (Blood for Ink) is a meditation on the tenacity of the creative drive, that black hole incessantly pulling inward, a vortex of desire, self doubt, and the mad pursuit of creative perfection. It's about finding fulfillment in creation without sacrificing oneself to the forging fire, and traversing the razor's edge between obsession and oblivion. Musically, the song is a relentless push forward, plunging headlong into the belly of the beast, ceasing only for a moment to regroup and claw its way out again. In the end, even our greatest passions can devour us, becoming yet another Idol to which we pay tribute"

HORRENDOUS have previously revealed the artwork for 'Idol', which can be viewed together with the album details below.

Biography

Horrendous-0089-small-scott-kinkade

The brand new HORRENDOUS album 'Idol' represents a deity, to which worship is addressed with admiration, adoration and devotion. But most of all, it represents a new beginning for the death metal inspired members.

When HORRENDOUS formed in 2009, the band's three founding members attended the same university and were obsessed with old school death metal. Driven by a desire to capture and rekindle the mystique of an already bygone era in the history of metal, the Americans fused elements from both sides of the Atlantic into a cohesive sonic landscape, which resulted in the 'Sweet Blasphemies' demo.

The demo kindled a fire of early interest and the blaze swept fast beyond their home in South Carolina with HORRENDOUS being picked up by their first label, which led to the release of the band's debut full-length 'The Chills' (2012).

With growing confidence and progressing as musicians, HORRENDOUS began to expand upon the traditional death metal formula, conjuring a bolder, more sophisticated sound from disparate elements beyond the limitations of any genre. This lead to the albums 'Ecdysis' in (2014) and, after relocating to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 'Anareta' (2015). The latter scored an impressive 24/50 in the Terrorizer Magazine (UK) "Album of the Year" list - as well as making it into the top-lists of US magazines such as Stereogum, Spin, Decibel, and many more. Each successive record marked a new step in the evolution of the band and carried them further on their adventurous journey of musical awakening.

HORRENDOUS are now ready to conquer the metal scene even further with their brand new release 'Idol'.
