MB Premiere: VIOLENT SIN - 'The Original Sin'

Today, in cooperation with Dying Victims Productions, we are thrilled to present the new track 'The Original Sin' from VIOLENT SIN's highly anticipated debut album, Serpent's Call.

Hailing from Belgium, VIOLENT SIN formed in 2016 to honor and build upon the legacy of heavy metal and its varied & diverse forms. Although the band certainly draws inspiration from the days of yore, they're certainly not limited to what people would call '80s metal – in their words, "We believe that real metal is timeless" - and humbly and reverentially do they offer a continuation and innovation of what all their predecessors set in motion.

The first full-length is indeed a summons to all headbangers who love denim and leather, cauldron and sword. Like a veritable jukebox, Serpent's Call synthesizes all sorts of righteous metal styles - classic speed, proto-blackthrash, speed-cum-thrash, juiced-up traditional - into one 37-minute thrillride. The recording's suitably rough but not overly raw, maintaining a "murky clarity" not unlike a classic Combat or Metal Blade record from 1985, and just the right amount of echo to emit sulfurous atmosphere. And at 11 swift 'n' stout songs, VIOLENT SIN race from one to the next, but always with memorability and malice.

Serpent's Call will be released by Dying Victims Productions on May 26th, 2023 on CD, cassette and vinyl LP formats.
