Metallic hardcore heroes All Out War have long leaned harder into the the “metallic” area of their sub-genre tag than the “hardcore” region. And “Glorious Devastation,” the first track from their forthcoming new LP Celestial Rot, might be the most sinister-sounding song they’ve ever released. Recorded by guitarist Taras Apuzzo and mixed/mastered by Erol Ulug at Bright Lights Studios (Teeth, Rotting Out), the band’s debut for Philly-based Translation Loss heralds a dark new chapter for these New York metalcore masters.
“‘Glorious Devastation’ represents the dark path humanity has embarked upon,” says vocalist Mike Score. “It’s a twisted journey towards an apocalyptic end that will cleanse the earth of a tortured and corrupt existence. We chose this song because we felt it captured the essence of the album both lyrically and sonically. We thought it was a fantastic representation of where the band is headed musically.
“The title Celestial Rot expresses the decay of not only this world, but the dogma that has helped bring us here. The fall of the earthly realm, as well as the spiritual realm.
“We are excited for this release because we touch on influences that we have not tapped into previously. Celestial Rot represents a new direction and a new chapter for All Out War. A new voyage that we are enthusiastically embracing.”
