Even though consisting in extremely affordable CD releases, the XENOKORP Militia Series, created to help new artists kickstart their careers, isn’t a cheap offering however and, after DEFENESTRATION’s “Gutter Perdition”, the series’ first iteration, the Korporation is proud to announce the recruitment of France Thrash / Death Metalers VRIESS for the release of their debut EP as part of the Militia!
Named after the ALIEN IV character, VRIESS is the contaminated Thrash / Death Metal child of the 2020 pandemic formed by PROJECT FOR BASTARDS members Greg and Chris (also ex-THE LUMBERJACK FEEDBACK) that decided to start working back on songs the later started creating a decade before, mixing groovy and heavy riffs, Thrash Metal’s appetite for speed and Death Metal’s hungriness for rotten atmospheres.
The band’s self-titled debut, featuring none others than drummer extraordinaire Kévin PARADIS (BENIGHTED, MITHRIDATIC…) behind the kit and mesmerizing bassist Linus KLAUSENITZER (ALKALOID, ex-OBSCURA…) completing the line-up, features five heavy and punishing Thrash / Death songs with even a guest solo by DARKANE’s Christopher MALMSTRÖM on one.
It will be released on August 6 as a unique print of 500 copies on CD and, of course, digital, with a first single to be unleashed on June 18 on all streaming platforms as well as as on the late June FRENCH METAL compilation CD.
