Last month, REPENTANCE – the new project featuring past / present members of Broken Hope, SOiL, 4ARM, Dirge Within, etc. – revealed their vocalist selection: Stuck Mojo’s Robby J. Fonts [STORY].
Now, REPENTANCE is back with the debut of their first single ready for public consumption, “Collide“. The band recorded the track at Mercenary Studios with Scott Creekmore (Dirge Within, Lionheart) and had it mixed and mastered by Chris Collier (Prong, Flotsam And Jetsam).
“Collide” is a pummeling slab of abrasive thrash metal and does well in revealing the band’s aggressive side. Fonts’ vocals will possibly surprise, perhaps even shock, fans of his work within Stuck Mojo and on that band’s recent album, ‘Here Comes The Infidels’.
REPENTANCE will soon make their live stage debut when they support Trivium and Toothgrinder at The Forge In Joliet, IL on May 23rd [TICKETS].
