Igor Amadeus Cavalera, along with his father (and metal icon) Max Cavalera have released their new band’s second song ‘Toxic Freedom‘ in the lead up to their self-titled debut album GO AHEAD AND DIE, out June 11th via Nuclear Blast Records.
If you’re a fan of old school underground noise like Celtic Frost, Venom and Bathory, then ‘Toxic Freedom‘ is going to light you up. While it lacks the ‘recorded in an underwater dungeon on a portable four-track, far from civilisation’ sound of early 80’s satanic metal, it does kick a solid amount of arse. Dress that influence in Cavaleras unmistakable sound, throw Zach Coleman’s thunderous drumming in and you’ve got a song that makes me want the June 11th album release date to come around that much quicker.
When speaking of the band’s sound the lads stated:
“Vocals weren’t tracked over and over in the pursuit of some kind of “perfect” takes. Coleman didn’t play to a click-track. The heart and soul of GO AHEAD AND DIE is all about just going for it, the traditional way.”
