Riding an opening riff straight outta Metallica’s Load/Unload era, Dutch quintet Disquiet show their collective musical hand in the first minute of their new video for “Wrecked.” The tune bounces from progressive Bay Area thrash to melodic death metal, with some power metal acrobatics, as well. And when they say “featuring” in regard to the Agonist vocalist Vicky Psarakis’ guest appearance, they ain’t kidding. She handles the bulk of the lead vocals on the tune, doing both clean and growled vocals alongside Disquiet frontman Sean Maia.
“Wrecked” is the second single released from Disquiet’s third album, Instigate to Annihilate, which is set for release via Soulseller Records on May 6. The band—Maia, Menno Ruijzendaal (guitar), Fabian Verweij (guitar), Frank van Boven (bass) and Arthur Stam (drums)—has been together for more than two decades, but didn’t release its debut until 2011. It has one other previous release on Soulseller, 2016’s The Condemnation.
Instigate to Annihilate will be available on CD digipack, limited gatefold black vinyl, limited gatefold oxblood vinyl and digitally. If you’re in the Americas, you can preorder here; the rest of the world here. And you can presave the digital version here.
Here’s what the band had to say about the video:
“This collaboration with singer Vicky Psarakis (The Agonist) gives this modern metal song a huge dynamic range from modest emotions to intense aggression; an epic combination between odd guitar riffs, catchy melodies, grooves and versatile guitar solos.”
