With a release date scheduled for March 16th, WORDS THAT BURN’s new album ‘Cut Throat Culture’ will feature previously released singles, ‘Den of Lions, ‘You’re On Your Own’, ‘Fire at Will’, and ‘Play God’, as well as much more melodic heft! For fans of Parkway Drive, Archecticts, BMTH, Korn, Spiritbox.
Produced by Josh Schroeder [Lora Shore, King 810], ‘Cut Throat Culture‘ sees the rising Irish four-piece embrace a variety of styles that range from alternative, to metal-core, and electronic fusion, creating a body of work that, if anything, is totally unique to the bands core sound, as well as being a landmark release for contemporary Irish Metal.
One Pandemic, and four singles later, the band are finally gearing up for the release of their highly anticipated new studio album, ‘Cut Throat Culture’ this coming March 16th, via Blood Blast Distribution/Believe Digital.
Described by Metal Hammer as: “the heft of Parkway Drive, while elsewhere huge choruses evoke modern-day Bing Me the Horizon”, Words That Burn have created a ferocious collection of contemporary and genre-pushing compositions on this new album, including the previously released singles, ‘Den of Lions‘, ‘You’re on Your Own‘, ‘Fire at Will’, and most recent track, ‘Play God’.
The results speak for themselves. ‘Cut Throat Culture’ is jam-packed with melody, heaviness, and raw density that twists and turns, as each track blossoms into magnificent crescendos of sonic light and shade. Outside of the previously released singles, just listen to ‘To Night‘, ‘Thicker Skin‘, and ‘Michael‘ as a reference to the boundary-pushing that WTB are striving for on ‘Cut Throat Culture’ and you’ll get some insight into the direction they are moving in.
Add in powerful lyrics, and a ferocious vocal delivery that ranges from clean melodic to guttural aggression, twinned with gut-punching breakdowns, (specifically designed to launch heft missiles), and you’ve got yourself one hell of an album.
Talking of the album, the band says:“Cut Throat Culture is an album written & recorded during a time of crisis & despair, where you want to believe there is a light at the end of the tunnel, but the tunnel seemed endless. It’s ten tracks reflecting on & observing a world impacted by isolation, chaos, hysteria, hurt, anger & loss.“
The full album track listing is as follows:
