US speed metal crusaders Seax charge into the tenth year of their existence with their fourth album, Fallout Rituals. The quartet continue to dial in their classic sound, assembling a 10-track collection of ragers that worship at the altar of speed and NWOBHM.
Take a song like “Bring Down the Beast,” streaming below, that combines the pace of Accept and Exciter with the inhumanly-high vocals of trad heavy metal.
“‘Bring Down The Beast’ is the audio equivalent of driving down the side of a mountain in a Volkswagen Rabbit on fire,” says Hessian guitarist/vocalist and Seax fan Angus McFarland. “Five-and-a-half minutes of unrelenting heavy metal mayhem.”
Fallout Rituals is out April 5 on Shadow Kingdom.
