Polish death metal icons TRAUMA have issued “Inside The Devil’s Heart,” the lead single to their impending eighth studio full-length, Ominous Black. Their first album for Selfmadegod Records, the album is scheduled for early March release. “Inside The Devil’s Heart” makes its public inauguration through an exclusive premiere hosted by Metal Injection.
The TRAUMA crew offers, “Here you have the opening song from Ominous Black. After a short, tension-building intro, a real slaughter for ears begins. This song from the musical point of view is very varied, once you can feel the tension, which is like a destructive tornado rolling through the city. In the middle of the song, it transforms into a tar dripping ram, crushing everything that goes under it. Lyrics are also connected with all the emotions coming out from music. The song tells about senseless violence and hatred growing in a man in the face of a world that is devastated by war. The overwhelming gibberish of information, provoking for battle and religious extremism turns us into an army of stressed slaves, who are permanently in danger. Only a moment separates us from madness, which spreads like a deadly virus. Chaos, death, and destruction!”

TRAUMA is one of Poland’s oldest and most experienced death metal acts. The band started in the late-1980s, known then as Thanatos. Under the moniker, two demo tapes were recorded, which helped them become known as one of the most interesting and musically advanced bands from the Polish metal scene. In December 1992, they changed the name to TRAUMA, and a few months later recorded their debut full-length, Invisible Reality. Since then, the squad has been remained continuously busy, releasing their brand of music for nearly thirty years!
2020 sees TRAUMA delivering their anxiously anticipated eighth album, Ominous Black, featuring nine crushing new tracks composed and recorded by the band’s Jarosław “Mister” Misterkiewicz. The songs were captured at the band’s TRAUMAtic Sound Studio in Elbląg, Poland where the band used to make pre-productions of the previous albums. The album was mixed and mastered by Wiesławscy Bros at the famous Hertz Studio (Behemoth, Vader, Hour Of Penance, Beheaded), and completed with cover artwork by Polish artist Mariusz Lewandowski (Bell Witch, Fuming Mouth, Mizmor).
