Harm's Way announces new album

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. Harm's Way album cover Rust 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. Rust track listing: 01. Infestation 02. Law Of The Land 03. Cremation 04. Hope 05. Cancerous Ways 06. Amongst The Rust 07. Disintegrate 08. Docile Bodies 09. Turn To Stone 10. Ease My Mind

could this be the HW record that finally gets me into them? I don't dislike this band, but I can't seem to really get into anything they've done so far. ALSO, NEW BLACKLISTED PREORDER AND MORE SELF DEFENSE FAMILY STUFF SOON PLEASE DEATHWISH, THANK YOU.

One of the heaviest bands out still doing it. I don't get why one dude in the band is a gym rat so they're just a "meathead lifting weights band" but I am very stoked for this album

The singer used to play bass for expired youth. Everyone thought they broke up but I heard James at the members for protein. True story.
