DESPISED ICON ARE THE MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS
Everyone’s favorite French Canadian deathcore band, Despised Icon, have a new song, “MVP,” currently streaming on their MySpace page. The track comes off their new album, Day of Mourning, which drops September 22 on Century.
Preliminary thoughts: it’s a somewhat less core-y song than we’re used to from DI, but, frankly, I don’t find it as distinctive as anything from 2007’s excellent The Ills of Modern Man. Still, I’m anxious to hear the whole album and see what these fellas have cooked up.
Despised Icon are crushing skulls this summer on the MetalSucks co-sponsored Thrash & Burn tour. Get dates here.
