Finnish death/thrash metal act Khiral is streaming the new single 'Stain' from the upcoming new album "Chained," which is set to drop on January 12th via Inverse Records. Check out the tune in the player above. The foundations of Khiral were built already in 2008, but this stew required some years of slow cooking and a few lineup changes until 2016 when Khiral released the first singles "Orphanage" and "UltravioleNt," followed by several live shows. During that period the style evolved from hardcore inspired rock to a unique mixture of death, thrash and even some black metal elements, still leaning hard on catchy rhythms. 2017 was a real step forward, as Khiral made its way to Emergenza band competition's Finnish final, thus being able to introduce the music to larger audiences, The band made its first appearance abroad in Germany, and then recorded the debut album "Chained." The album represents the band's evolution from the first songs to the present. Rock elements of the early days are long gone, but there are still hints of the hardcore-inspired breakdowns and rhythms that were the bread and butter from the beginning.
