This March, 20 Buck Spin will deploy the savage second LP from brutal Los Angeles quintet KOMMAND, Death Age, today issuing the cover art, track listing, preorders, and the volatile lead single, “Chimera Soldiers.”
The follow-up to their debut LP Terrorscape, released in 2020 via Maggot Stomp, Death Age maintains the armed to the teeth savage militancy of earlier material from KOMMAND, now taken even further into enemy territory with more grisly wartorn brutality than ever. Like the coordinated bombardment of an entire continent, Death Age is an air raid siren for imminent cataclysm.
The ominous atmosphere on Death Age heralds the single-minded concentrated objective; to batter, demolish and destroy with no quarter given. Death metal of this kind taps into the most primitive, untamed instincts, advancing like a convoy of tanks through occupied territory, heedless of whatever or whoever stands in its path. From opener “Final Virus” to closer “Collapse Metropolis,” KOMMAND’s vision of a dystopian hellscape, cities permanently scarred by heavy weaponry, and those unfortunates who survived the onslaught never relents or offers respite. Death Age thus renders a terminal epitaph on the bloody trash heap of near-future history.
Death Age was recorded by Mike Kriebel with additional recording by Andrew Oswald at Paradise Records, mixed and mastered by Arthur Rizk (Dream Unending, Gravesend, Daeva), and completed with photography by Kris Kirk and artwork by Bharatadanu. Guaranteed to be one of the year’s most decimating releases, Death Age is detrimental listening for followers of Bolt Thrower, Asphyx, Acephalix, Vastum, Hail Of Bullets, Stormcrow, Hellshock, and Sanctum.
The first warning shot from KOMMAND’s Death Age, “Chimera Soldiers,” can be heard at YouTube HERE and Bandcamp HERE.
20 Buck Spin will release Death Age March 31st on LP, CD, CS, and digitally. Preorders are available at the label webshop HERE and Bandcamp HERE.
Having toured Europe in 2022, including a set at Kill Town Death Fest, KOMMAND will return to the road in 2023. Stand by for live announcements and additional previews of Death Age to post over the weeks ahead.
