National Public Radio today unfurls a brand new track from Richmond, Virginia doomsmiths INTER ARMA, with the opening track to the band’s Relapse debut Sky Burial. “The Survival Fires” comes immediately alive with some of the most straightforward blackened blasting found on the multi-faceted album, yet overall reverberates with the pulsating, organic, earthmoving doom surge the band so expertly perpetuates.
Let the more than ten-minute seismic upheaval of “The Survival Fires” tear your world apart immediately via NPR.
INTER ARMA also released the album’s fifth track “‘sblood” now playing at the Relapse Youtube channel.
In hardly more than two weeks from now, INTER ARMA will take the sonic destruction of the songs on Sky Burial out to the masses on an upcoming North American assault alongside Brooklyn savages Mutilation Rites. The three-week venture will take the bands through the Midwest and into Austin, Texas for several performances throughout 2013’s SXSW fiesta, just as Sky Burial will be hitting stores for its March 19th North American street date. The tour then breaks into the Southwest and includes a stop in Tijuana, Mexico before pummeling north, up the West Coast and back into the Midwest.
