Judiciary Announce New Album Flesh + Blood, Stream Thrashy First Single
Texas outfit Judiciary have announced their sophomore album, Flesh + Blood, for a March 10 release on Closed Casket Activities. Along with the announcement comes “Engulfed,” the first single from the record. The official PR, which you can read below, says that Judiciary were listening to a lot of Slayer’s God Hates Us All and Chimaira’s The Impossibility of Reason while writing the record, which shines through pretty immediately.
Bassist Kyle Calfin said:
“We want this music to take you to the world that we’ve built with it. To feel it, visualize it, see it how we see it — to us, there would be nothing better.”
And the official PR:
Texas quintet Judiciary will drop their sophomore album Flesh + Blood via Closed Casket Activities on March 10. Pre-order it here.
Today, the band has shared the video for “Engulfed.” Watch it here.
Grinding full force since 2013, the band unleashed the EP The Axis of Equality in 2016, a split EP with Mortality Rate in 2017, and finally, their first full-length record Surface Noise with Closed Casket Actitives in 2019. Along the way, they also shared stages with a wide variety of bands, including Vein, Power Trip, The Acacia Strain, Exhumed, and Gatecreeper, to name a few.
Citing influences such as Slayer’s God Hates Us All and Chimaira’s The Impossibility of Reason as well as “a ton of Machine Head,” their vision crystallized in 2021. They recorded what would become Flesh + Blood with producer Arthur Rizk [Power Trip, Cavalera Conspiracy] in August of 2021 before Will Putney [Body Count, Vein] handled mixing and mastering.
Flesh + Blood Tracklist:
04. Paradigm Piercer
05. Knife in the Dirt
06. Stare Into The Sun
08. Steel Hand God
10. Eschatos Hemera
