Vio-Lence new EP, co-headlining tour with Coroner

Finally, after 29 years, thrash ensemble Vio-Lence have delivered a collection of new, teeth-kicking anthems ready to set the world ablaze with Let The World Burn, their first since 1993’s Nothing To Gain.Stream now and purchase Let The World Burn at Metal Blade Records, available today worldwide: several US dates this Spring, the band will be headlining the European Headbangers Ball Tour 2022, as founding guitarist Phil Demmel reflects on the current state of Vio-Lence, “We want to constantly be releasing music, and constantly doing shows. At this stage we’re excited for everybody who’s still excited for this band. To them I say thank you for still listening to and supporting us, we’re excited to come play, so spread the Vio-Lence!”Speaking on the five song EP, frontman Sean Killian believes, “Each song has its own individual sound, they are all very thrash metal, there are grinding riffs, technical riffs, and plenty of speed. The lyrics are written freely with no restrictions and without compromise while the vocal patterns are typically unusual and delivered with a multitude of emotions.” On composing the new songs, Demmel adds, “I hadn’t written a lot of thrash in the past 17 years but being the main songwriter for the band over the years I wanted that sound, I wanted that mid-’80’s raw thing, but I also wanted to capture our signature notes and structures and stuff like that.”

Filling out the band’s ranks on Let The World Burn alongside Demmel and Killian are original drummer Perry Strickland, former Overkill guitarist Bobby Gustafson and former Fear Factory bassist Christian Olde Wolbers. Let the World Burn was recorded with Juan Urteaga at Trident Studios (Testament, Machine Head, Exodus), with mixing handled by Tue Madsen (The Haunted, Meshuggah) and Grammy Award winning engineer Ted Jensen (Alice In Chains, Deftones, Pantera).Vio-Lence will bring their head-stomping brutal live show to select cities with fellow thrashers Coroner before both legends impede upon the Maryland Deathfest on May 27th.
