Vio-lence Premiere “Flesh From Bone,” First New Song in 29 Years
Reunited Bay Area thrasher Vio-lence have released “Flesh From Bone,” their first new song in 29 years. They have also revealed that a new EP, Let The World Burn, will arrive on March.
Founding guitarist Phil Demmel, who rejoined the group in 2019 after leaving Machine Head, commented on the new song:
“This is the first Vio-lence song I had written in close to 30 years. I wanted to keep some of those early Eternal Nightmare qualities intact but infuse a lot of what I’ve culled into my songwriting arsenal over the decades. ‘Flesh From Bone’ has the frenetic picking/fingering riffs and the solo trade-offs that are pretty old-school, and I’m also wearing my influences on my sleeve with a few Exodus and Slayer-inspired riffs.”

Vio-lence performed another new song called “Upon Their Cross” at a show last August. Vocalist Sean Killian, who is defiantly unvaccinated, became very ill and subsequently hospitalized with Covid-19 soon after, likely as a result of contact at the show, which Demmel dubbed “a super-spreader event.”
Let The World Burn is scheduled for a March 4 release via Metal Blade; pre-order here.
