Teaming up with Metal Nation, Canada's AxMinister unleashed the lyric video for the new single "Prey," a track inspired by the '50 Shades of Grey' phenomenon, but written with a comedic take meant to be shocking and sexy, as well as a little bit cheesy/cheeky with a Type O Negative approach.

Hailing from the frozen tundra of Ontario, AxMinister are the heroes of metal the world needs! Initially formed back in the forgotten mists of metallic history (1999); the power-trio returns in 2018 with the next triumph “The Crucible of Sin,” the band's new EP expected to drop on May 4th. Pre-orders are available over here.
On the EP, the band commented: “Our soon to be released EP 'The Crucible of Sin' sports a sense of humour. It tries to tell a… at times, nihilistic, story about love, lust, oppression, and redemption. Following every recording and show, we try to reflect on our own mistakes, and attempt to improve. We grew to understand our 90s thrash/traditional style of songwriting, and compose accordingly. This EP has that ‘90’s warm thrash sound akin to Megadeth’s Youthanasia album. We hope old and new audiences join us on a journey that is at times fictional, visual and imaginative, while other times introspective and contemplative. We like you to dance, head bang, and mosh to it."
The EP follows singles “Visceral Speed” (2017), “AXistential Christmas” (2015), “Unborn Warriors: The Cries of Tomorrow” (2015) and the debut full length “Betray Everything” (2015). The track listing and artwork can be found here:
