New Hampshire metallers Epicenter are back with a new video and single and it absolutely rips. It seems as if the formerly crossover neo-Thrash band has injected some proggy Death Metal into their style along the lines of Revocation and Allegaeon, and the results are their new track “Counterweight”, which premiered over at Metal Injection. The band kicks off a new tour starting tonight, and you can see the dates below. Check out the clip now.
Epicenter’s Ryan Burke comments: “We’re always experimenting with ways to twist and bend a Thrash Metal foundation into a new shapes, usually by fusing it with surprising vibes from other musical spaces. With Counterweight, we wanted to merge our passion for mathy, rhythmic complexity with the raw passion and crust of Thrash and Death Metal. We’ve had songs with moments of Thrash followed by moments of groove, but we haven’t really tried to combine them into simultaneous moments until now. It just seemed to ooze this weird chaotic energy once it came together, and I think that’s super fun and interesting.”
