I'm looking forward to this one and really like the new track. They have a Vektor vibe to their sound, but not as complicated (maybe not the best way to describe it, but hey) IMO.

Quote:
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Black Fast. The promising St. Louis thrash outfit released Terms of Surrender in 2015 to praise from both critics and the metal world at large, did a whole bunch of touring to support it then took some time off to recharge their batteries.

Black Fast return from their brief hiatus today with a new song called “Cloak of Lies” and a music video to go along with it. With new songs usually come new albums, and that’s certainly the case here: Spectre of Ruin will hit mid-summer!

“Cloak of Lies” finds Black Fast doing what Black Fast have always done so well: unrelenting, savage thrash with a dose of progressive riffing thrown in. The middle section of this song reminds us a bit of The Sound of Perseverance-era Death, but don’t worry, Black Fast don’t get too out there; things come full circle and it’s back to their usual, pummeling thrash assault before too long. Producer Erik Rutan has once again done a bang-up job of dialing in a crisp-sounding recording without sacrificing any of the rawness that makes the music what it is.


Black Fast’s new album Spectre of Ruin on Friday, July 13, 2018, via Entertainment One; pre-order here (digital) and here (physical).


Not my favorite source, but it's where I found it...

Not too excited about it.
Terms Of Surrender was cool but their drummer kinda ruined it after a while, constantly smashing the same cymbal, at the same pace, on ALL THE FUCKING SONGS.
Once you notice it, it becomes teeth-grinding and fucking annoying. That's a shame because there were good tunes and ideas, their thrash is sprinkled with prog hints and remains savage and brutal.
I listened to their new song aaaaaaand what am i hearing again? This same cymbal-bludgeoning almost all the way through. I will give it a chance though, because on their first record the drums were way better and diversified, so Mr Ross Burnett is a capable drummer. I hope the band chose varied rhythm patterns on this new album, unless i will pass my turn.

Jesus Christ you are right and now that I notice it I can't unnotice it.

That was my main gripe with Terms of Surrender. I kept waiting for them to kick it into high gear, to go into a double time thrash beat, but it never happened.
