Long Island’s veteran hardcore metal group, This Is Hell, has announced that its fourth studio album, Black Mass, will see an October 11th release on Rise Records, confirming the identity of the mysterious website, AllRiseForTheBlackMass.com. The teaser site has seen a complete update, including a YouTube stream of the brand new track, “Black Mass.”

"The new album takes the crossover and metal influences from last album to much greater extremes and the end product was Black Mass, by far the heaviest and thrashiest songs we've written and recorded,” said guitarist, Rick Jimenez.

"Lyrically this album touches on issues we haven't dove into before. Social injustice as a whole is a recurring theme. Persistence and empowerment are familiar themes with us that I've revisited, but with an even more aggressive outlook than before."

"The artwork was done by Will Blood, an amazing English illustrator/artist that we've worked with on shirts and designs before,” added Jimenez. “The concept came from some lyrics and underlying themes from the album and Will really took the ball and ran with it. Whether someone takes the art at sheer superficial face value, or really absorbs the details and subtleties of it, it's an extremely powerful piece of artwork. I feel the same way about the music and especially the lyrics on this new record."

This Is Hell will hit the road next month for a North American tour with Underoath, Comeback Kid and The Chariot.

“We're very excited for our upcoming tour with Underoath, Comeback Kid, and The Chariot,” said vocalist, Travis Reilly. “We've toured many times with Comeback Kid and we look forward to spending more time with them and meeting the other guys. It's going to be great to play some new songs for a bunch of new faces.”

You're pretty quick on the hating, at least, if you're not imitating the regular AP user haha.

kind of a bummer because i've been really stoked to hear this, even before the whole viral marketing thing. i've always loved when hardcore bands crossover into "thrash metal" territory and it seems like this is hell would do that really well

EDIT: it's working now. love it. straight up sounds like 80s thrash
