, the new album from the French hardcore outfit VERA CRUZ
, is available for streaming in its entirety below. The band's Season Of Mist
debut features eleven tracks of pulse-pounding, relentless hardcore and metal will be out in North America on January 22. VERA CRUZ
embraces the fine art of serious ass-kicking with "Skinandteethandnails"
. Balancing melodic hardcore with rock influences, the band displays astonishing mastery for such a young act. The effort captures the explosive energy that the band unleashes during their live shows.
States the band: "There's an overall theme about this album and the way it has been thought and composed. There's a sort of 'Holy Grail' we always try to reach in every song but like the latter, whatever is Holy doesn't lie in front of your eyes for everyone to see, but is rather a kind of quest to find it. We would like people to be able to find what they've been seeking with our music. It's for everyone to decipher it and find what's under the surface.""Skinandteethandnails"
will be available on CD digipak and digitally.
