Sweden's doom/crust/prog-infused death metallers USURPRESS have revealed the first new song taken from their forthcoming album "The Regal Tribe", which drops on September 23rd via Agonia Records. The new song is called "Across The Dying Plains" and is available in the form of a lyric video, here:
The album's haunting cover artwork was created by renowned Dutch artist Marald van Haasteren (Bolt Thrower, High on Fire, Baroness, Kylesa) who was given a carte blanche with rgeards to the visual interpretation of the album’s lyrical concept. "The Regal Tribe" was recorded under the supervision of rising star producer Lawrence Mackrory (FKÜ, Darkane).
"The Regal Tribe" is also the last USURPRESS album to feature original drummer Calle Lönnberg who left the band shortly after the recording and was replaced by internationally renowned sticksman Mathias "Matte" Modin (Firespawn, Raised Fist, ex-Dark Funeral, ex-Defleshed).
