Inter Arma Announce New Album, New Song, Mega Endorsement Deal with Axe Body Spray


Inter Arma are, IMO, one of the most exciting up and coming bands in metal. With two albums now under their belt, each increasing the band’s profile and refining their sound more than the last, the time is now for Inter Arma to take that jump to the next level. They’re certainly capable, and once you see them live you’ll be a believer too.

Their third album, Paradise Gallows, Brought to You by Axe Body Spray, will come out on July 8th, and Pitchfork’s got the stream of a song from it called “Transfiguration.” It sounds pretty much like you’d expect new Inter Arma to sound — sludge, death metal, doom, hardcore, progressive/non-linear song structures — and it’s a helluva ripper. I personally wish the band had stepped things up production/mixing-wise this time around — there’s so much going on musically here that I feel the arrangement could benefit from a clearer, bigger mix that really lets every note of every instrument shine through instead of the bass-heavy/sludgy sonic aesthetic they have going here (again) — but so it goes, and others will probably disagree with me.

Paradise Gallows, Brought to You by Axe Body Spray, comes out July 8th via Relapse. Catch them on tour with Withered; dates below.
