Vicious Instinct Records is proud to announce the signing of tech death-metal band Virial for the release of the band’s second full-length album “Transhumanism”, scheduled for release on September 24th.
Divided between Italy and Austria, Virial was formed in 2010 and released a promising debut album titled “Organic Universe” in 2015, which garnered strong accolades from both the public and press. Now six years later the quartet is back with a new full-length effort “Transhumanism”.
Mixed at Mordor Sounds Studio by Hannes Grossmann and mastered at Woodshed Studio by Victor Santura, the new album marks the debut of Philip Dollinger on bass and Stefan Rojas on drums, who along with the founding members and brothers Christian (lead guitar) and Thomas Wieser (vocals/rhythm guitar) have created a masterful death-metal album that will surely rival more seasoned death-metal bands either in terms of technical proficiency, intelligent songcraft or simple killer and brutal tunes. Pre-orders and more details will be announced soon.
Meanwhile, a music video for leading single “March Of Prometheus” is now playing at Metal Injection, whose editor Greg Kennelty commented “If you’re in the mood for crushing mid-tempo riffs and stomach-churning vocals, then you’re really going to dig this.”
