Spanish thrash quartet recently revealed details of their second full length album Theater of Despair, set for release 11th January 2019 via Hostile Media. Today the band unveils the first single and video for opening track 'Trivialization Of Murder'.
Guitarist Sebas Silvera comments, "The song's about an evil germ that we all have inside, and what would happen if we let that germ take control of us. We shot the video at our rehearsal space and it's totally DIY. We directed the video ourselves, set up lights etc, and two friends who had a camera and knew how to use it, Ruben Izquierdo and Jordi Garcia, came up, and helped us recording the video. It was Andrew our vocalist who came up with a rough idea of the video, and throughout the process, we all contributed with ideas to make the video more appropriate with what we all wanted to make."

Forthcoming album Theater of Despair, contains no less than ten blistering aural onslaughts with all the trademarks that makes the thrash genre so damned great. Fast, heavy, ferocious and unwavering from start to finish! The album will be released worldwide on 11th January 2019, prepare for war!
"This album represents a new level for the band," states guitarist Sebas Silvera. "It was written in a different way than the previous albums, in a more natural way. Santi and I usually write all the instrumental parts, and as we were in a difficult time for personal reasons, we just let the riffs flow, not trying to sound like A or B, but more open minded and free to express ourselves in some kind of way. The lyrics follow the same pattern, they are personal to our vocalist Andrew who has written all of them."
The album was recorded over the summer of 2018 at Axtudio in Barcelona, where the band recorded their first album Conflict. "Oscar, the owner of the studio, was also our producer on this album. He has a REALLY good experience recording metal albums (for example, he recorded the last Crisix's albums) and he helped us a lot on this one 'opening the doors' to new kinds of compositions and sounds. We know we didn't create anything new, but it was definetly a new way of writing our album and also a challenge we did enjoy going through."
