ASSASSIN are releasing new studio album “Combat Cathedral” May 20, 2016
German Thrash Metal pioneers ASSASSIN will come up with their new studio album “Combat Cathedral” May 20, 2016. The album will be released via Steamhammer / SPV worldwide and is available as CD, LTD. Edition LP version (500 only worldwide on red 180gr. Vinyl + CD) and of course as download.
The coverart was done by Marcelo Vasco who also did artworks for Slayer, Machine Head, Soulfly and Borknagar.
After founding member and shouter Robert Gonella has left the band in 2014 new singer Ingo “Crowzak” Bajonczak joined in and it turned out that he was the right choice for the band. The new album shows very impressive that this band is still able to deliver fast and precise Thrash Metal on a high level. From the first to the last note of the album this is a full throttle Metal album containing loads of energy and ultra-heavy riffing! Fasten your seatbelt and welcome “Combat Cathedral”. This will make clear that Assassin is still on top of the list of German Thrash Metal bands.
“Jürgen “Scholli” Scholz (Assassin guitar) comments: “Like back in the 80s, the new album stands for Thrash Metal at it´s finest, but, after the last album Breaking the Silence, much more mature, developed and with a very fat production. Songs with 220 – 240 bpm are not rare, same with groovy Moshparts, which are partially nested into each other and a lot of sticking Refrains, which will animate you, to shout them along immediately together with our new Singer Crowzak. The opener sums it up perfectly: Assassin are ‘Back from the dead’!”
