Exclusive Track Premiere: Extinction A.D.’s “Age of Revenge”
“Age of Revenge,” the latest single from Strong Island’s Extinction A.D., enters your ears with the subtly of a war. If ever there was an argument to be made that these dudes are the heirs apparent to the East Coast thrash throne forged by bands like Anthrax and Overkill, it’s this song. “Revenge” is the kind of tornado track that demands an instant circle pit and insists on headbanging so intense that your jaw bruises your sternum. It has a chorus that is at once menacing, anthemic, and catchier than a bear trap, a serpentine, dangerously drunk guitar solo, and drums like a coordinated air strike. It is a steel-toed kick to the nards of a song, and an assurance that thrash’s future looks bright, even as its founding fathers continue to get old and lame. “Age of Revenge” came to kick ass, and by golly, asses shall be kicked.
Says vocalist/guitarist Rick Jimenez of the track and the band’s upcoming sophomore full-length, Decimation Treaty:
“The most recent presidential election was such a complete scam and a disheartening proceeding. The American public was left with even worse options than ever before and it’s never been more obvious that the system is utterly broken. Two sides of the same evil coin; this one focuses more on the megalomaniac than the egomaniac.”
