ALL NEW LP SPECTRE OF RUIN DUE OUT 7/13/18
2018 TOUR DATES ON SALE NOW
PRE ORDERS NOW LIVE
BLACK FAST has released a third new single titled “Husk” today exclusively via Revolver Magazine. “Husk was the last song to come together just as we started recording this album,” says the band. “It’s a little different from the rest of the songs and we knew right away it had to be the closer. Plus, it has a fucking slide solo.”
BLACK FAST had previously released a music video for “Cloak of Lies” via Metalsucks last month and standalone single for “Silhouette Usurper” via Toilet Ov Hell to kick off the new album cycle. All three tracks are available as iTunes instant gratification tracks meaning when fans pre-order the new LP on iTunes, they will receive the songs as instant downloads.
BLACK FAST will release Spectre of Ruin on Friday, July 13, 2018, via Entertainment One (eOne). Album opener “Cloak of Lies” sets the stage for Spectre of Ruin with a heaping helping of everything Black Fast represents, a locomotive of riffs barreling down the tracks with determined speed and aggression.
Like its predecessor, Black Fast’s Spectre of Ruin was summoned into sharp focus at Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida, with Erik Rutan, the Hate Eternal frontman and ex-Morbid Angel guitarist who has produced albums by genre titans like Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore, and Six Feet Under. It’s all killer, no filler, demonstrating the destructive force of focused neo-thrash and progressive death-infused heavy metal at its finest.
Black Fast follow the roadmap laid down by the great bands with “Angel” and “Death” in their names, swearing off the trappings of the mainstream with a steadfast dedication to their chosen craft. As vocalist/guitarist, Aaron Akin once summarized, “We’ve pushed our chips all-in since the beginning. We threw caution to the wind. We’re playing metal. We don’t really give a shit about ‘making it.’”
This music is a vibrant soundtrack to society’s collapse and a celebration of defiant resolution. The Black Fast mission is ruthlessly simple: champion musical aggression, bark at the moon, raise a fist and headbang like there’s no tomorrow.
The band will hit the road this summer in various stops across the eastern half of the United States. The band kicks it off with a performance with a batch of support dates with Exmortus on the “Summer of Steel” tour. Black Fast will then head out with Ringworm until they reach Cincinnati, OH where they’ll participate in the first Annual TRANSPLANT FEST with Ringworm & Incantation on July 21st. Black Fast will then celebrate the release of their new LP with a hometown release show at Fubar in St. Louis on August 17th.
