Just ahead of its release on Friday, May 25th, Ottawa thrash act Infrared premiered the entire new album "Saviours" over at Metal Underground.com at this location, but you can just check it out in the player above. Digital pre-orders for the album are available via iTunes.
Vocalist / guitarist Armin Kamal comments: "Infrared is extremely excited to release our sophomore album 'Saviours' to the world today. This has been in the works for about 2 years now and is something we are very proud of. 'Saviours' has fulfilled a goal of ours to create some brand new music the way we know how, with an old school 80s thrash feel along with a contemporary sound that encompasses our influences beyond the 80s.
"While not explicitly a concept album, the album is heavily themed on the idea of false 'Saviours' who claim to do good for others but are really self serving in their intentions. We like to inspire independent thought and a cautious view of the intentions of those who promote themselves as leaders. This message has been captured with 8 brand new songs that highlight the diversity in which this band makes music. While all songs stay true to our roots, they each offer a piece of what Infrared has to offer our fans. From fast and thrashy to melodic and dramatic, 'Saviours' delivers a punch from start to finish."
