Pioneering post-hardcore harbingers INTEGRITY and New Jersey’s trailblazing black metal entity KRIEG are uniting for a split release.
The split will arrive from Relapse Records on August 3rd, 2018 and we have two of its songs here today – one from each band.
INTEGRITY‘s track, “Scorched Earth“, arrives in an official video format and delivers two minutes of intense pummeling. It is laden with searing guitar solos from Dom Romeo, while Dwid Hellion delivers a barrage of hellish, gut-wrenched vocals. The video treatment was also created by Dwid and is viewable below.
KRIEG‘s contribution is an audio-only clip containing the song “Circle Of Guilt“, a blackened death ‘n roll song with a bleak presence. Neill Jameson & Co. enhance that feeling with contrasting atmospherics that serves to accentuate the darker nuances of the song.
Stream both of these songs below while you can find the INTEGRITY / KRIEG Split HERE.
