Official press release:

Rust is the new album from Chicago's Harms Way. Recorded at Bricktop Recordings by Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Dead In The Dirt), mixed at GodCity studios by Kurt Ballou (Converge, High On Fire), and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Obituary, Nails), the album is brutally and meticulously refined. Rust brilliantly combines industrial repetition (think Godflesh), metal attack (think Sepultura, Helmet, Celtic Frost), and hardcore aggression, showing that Harms Way have emerged from the wreckage of past genres as the new high watermark of heavy in contemporary aggressive music.

A March 10 release through Deathwish Inc. is scheduled.

Opener "Infestation" stomps with machine-like precision before plunging into a depressing sonic dirge. While songs like "Law Of The Land", "Hope", "Cancerous Ways", and others introduce guitar and electronic driven atmospherics into the arsenal. These subtle dynamics bleed into other aspects of Rust as well. Mid-album beast "Left To Disintegrate" unfurls as an unforgettable anti-anthem ripe with infectious creeping metallic undertones, while "Amongst The Rust" and "Turn To Stone" introduce guest vocals from Colin Young (Twitching Tongues) and Emily Jancetic. Both of them adding haunting nuance to the brute force of the band. All of this leads to the epic closer "Ease My Mind"; a take-no-prisoners aural bludgeoning so heavy that it needs to be heard to be believed.

Pre-order information and song premieres coming soon.
