METHANE have announced the release of a new brimstone engulfed album for early 2023. Hailing from Sweden with American born singer/bassist Tim Scott, formerly of cult acclaimed NJ death metal band Revenant, has chosen January 27, 2023 as the release date of its heavy groove laden thrash metal album “Kill It With Fire”.
The album reverberates unapologetic thrash metal guitar riffing courtesy of guitarists Jimi Masterbo and Markus Grundstrom paired with the intense drumming of newly inducted drummer Jonathan Fundin . The album also features a colaboration with CJ Scioscia from New York City area thrash legends Blood Feast, who shreds a solo on track 5 ‘A Blood Red Sky’.
Tim commented in a press release “The lyrics for the album have a darkened tone of irony about our contemporary societal woes and some deeply personal songs as well, of life and all its miseries. The music on the album sounds brutal, we really got a sick mix of old school thrash and heavy pit provoking groove riffs.”
Kill It With Fire is now available on black vinyl as pre-sale here on the band’s Bandcamp. It is also available to pre-save on Spotify, Bandcamp and Youtube here.
Thin the Herd is the first single released from the album, originally released in 2019, now Methane have just finished shooting a new video to be released sometime in January.
The music video depicts today’s society, social media junkies hopped up Facebook likes. The idea for the song came from a day Tim was going through his friends list, deleting people that had no reason to be there. ” I was culling them, deleting someone from your page is worse than death for some people. I think we are all going fuckin’ crazy. Its a virus and we’re all infected”.
