Making an impact on the Canadian’s 80s thrash scene, Ottawa legends INFRARED have returned to cement and carry on their own legacy, with their new album “Saviours” featuring all new music to follow their EP “No Peace”, which featured tracks all written in the 80’s and only recently heard by fans in 2016. “Saviours” features eight tracks that are thrashy, aggressive, melodic, heavy, and tight.
Set to thrash world on fire with it’s release on Friday, May 25th, INFRARED have teamed up with MetalUndeground.com for the album’s full stream premiere at the following link: http://www.metalunderground.com/news/details.cfm?newsid=140316
Vocalist / guitarist Armin Kamal comments:
“Infrared is extremely excited to release our sophomore album “Saviours” to the world today. This has been in the works for about 2 years now and is something we are very proud of. “Saviours” has fulfilled a goal of ours to create some brand new music the way we know how, with an old school 80s thrash feel along with a contemporary sound that encompasses our influences beyond the 80s.
While not explicitly a concept album, the album is heavily themed on the idea of false “Saviours” who claim to do good for others but are really self serving in their intentions. We like to inspire independent thought and a cautious view of the intentions of those who promote themselves as leaders. This message has been captured with 8 brand new songs that highlight the diversity in which this band makes music. While all songs stay true to our roots, they each offer a piece of what Infrared has to offer our fans. From fast and thrashy to melodic and dramatic, “Saviours” delivers a punch from start to finish.”
In additional news, INFRARED announces they will be local opening support for Flotsam and Jetsam on May 30th and Black Mass on June 29th.
