Despised Icon Sign with Nuclear Blast, Announce New Album for 2016

  • Axl Rosenberg

As promised in January, Despised Icon is now back in full force: the band has signed with Nuclear Blast, who will release their new album, Beast, sometime this summer. This will be the Montreal band’s first new offering since Days of Mourning in 2009.

Here’s a statement from the band…

“It’s been 7 years since our last record and our batteries are fully recharged. The O.G. line-up is back and the new shit hits hard. You’ll hear sounds of our older slammin’ death metal days blended with the speed and technicality of our latest records. Cheers to everyone that has stood by us after all these years. Can’t wait to unleash the Beast.”

…and here’s a video teaser for the record:

Well, alright! This oughta be fun. In fact, I am going to make a prediction right now: Despised Icon’s Beast will be the best metal album to bear that title since DevilDriver’s Beast in 2011. Bold words, I know, but something tells me I’m 110% correct. Bet on it.
