MB Premiere: VICIOUS KNIGHTS - 'They Cast No Shadow'

The Greek trio, Vicious Knights is an old-school death/thrash metal band from Thessaloniki, Greece. They were founded in 2016 and after quick demo, released their first EP in 2018 titled Malevolent Spirits.

Now, armed with the support of Dying Victims Productions, Vicious Knights return to destroy the world with their first full-length, Alteration Through Possession! Curiously yet tellingly titled, Alteration Through Possession indeed transforms the listener… once that listener is ensnared in the power-trio's iron grip. Like a trip back to 1987, Vicious Knights live up to their moniker by invoking the old spirits of early Kreator, Destruction, Possessed, and Sepultura, combining more devotedly horror-specific lyrics with absolutely ass-ripping Deathrash.

They go beyond the gates to inflict eternal pain, their infernal overkill bestowing morbid visions upon those who still believe in razor-wire riffing, snarling-evil vokills, and straightforward drum-propulsion - and of course, actual songwriting. Simple, sure, but sublime: Alteration Through Possession is a pleasure to kill!

Today, we are proud to present the new single 'They Cast No Shadow' and if you dig what you hear, Alteration Through Possession, is set for international release on January 28, 2022 via Dying Victims Productions on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats that can be pre-ordered via the links below.
