Oxford’s leading sludge metal force DESERT STORM premiere a brand new song “Pain, Grief and Suffering” taken from fifth full-length ‘Omens’, due out this May 1st on APF Records.
After their nearly prophetic “Black Bile” video and bleak second single “The Machine“, DESERT STORM unveil a brand new song called “Pain, Grief and Suffering”. Instantly gripping the listener’s guts with its dantean grooves and frontal riff onslaught, it also shows a whole new aspect of the band’s songwriting, with its piano bridge taking you to emotional peaks… only to crush all hope during its grand and fearsome solo-driven finale.

Frontman Matt Ryan tells us more about this new song: “‘Pain, Grief, and Suffering’ is that place where you are numbed to everything and so disassociated with life that you crave hurt just to feel alive. When you are completely lost, only the hardest emotions can make you feel again.” DESERT STORM recently announced the cancellation of their spring European tour — who included a few festivals appearances including Desertfest London. The band is working on rescheduling all dates, stay tuned for more info.
