Awesome! Not only because "Lords Of The Permafrost" marks the return of USURPER after a 14 year hiatus, but also because it sounds fucking awesome!.
The band and Soulseller Records premiered a lyric video of the album´s title track, and revealed release date and details of the album.
In a short press release, shared by Soulseller Records page, the band states: "After a 14 year hiatus, Usurper are proud to return with our sixth full length album entitled, “Lords of the Permafrost”. Back when we formed in 1993, we had the goal to create heavy, memorable songs with the anthemic quality of traditional Heavy Metal, combined with the heaviness of death metal, the fury of thrash metal, the atmosphere of black metal and the straight-forward, ass-kicking of 70’s Hard Rock…. 25 years later, we feel we have stayed true to our original objective and have recorded the quintessential Usurper album. Lyrically these songs explore topics such as monster folklore, the paranormal and other obscure tales, all while being delivered with a lethal dose of Heavy Metal bravado. Usurper never have, and never will chase trends. We have only returned to bring our next chapter of metal to the Worldwide Warriors of Iron and Rust, and kick maximum ass!”
"Lords Of The Permafrost" will be released on 22nd March on Vinyl, CD and digital versions, pre-orders will star third week of February.
Enjoy the lyric video, as usual, playing it fucking loud!
