Tucson-based modern death/thrash quintet, LETHAL DOSAGE, is preparing to embark on their Southwest US tour this week in support of their sophomore full-length, Consume, which is now just a week from release.
Brandishing a relentless, pulverizing but groove-laden style of very American death/thrash in the vein of Lamb Of God, Chimaira and Pantera, delivered through an ultra-amplified, sludgy tone, LETHAL DOSAGE dredges the listener over fifty minutes of caustic carnage on Consume, the album recorded at Arcane Digital Studio, produced and mixed by Ryan Butler and mastered at Sonorous Mastering. In advance of its release, today punk/hardcore online community, Stereokiller, is streaming the eighth of the album’s ten tracks, laying down five punishing minutes of invigorated brutality with the epic “Time To Think.”
Collectively stated LETHAL DOSAGE on the impending release of the album and their Consume The Southwest Tour beginning in just a few days, “We’re stoked to hit the road and promote the release of our new record with these shows. We hope to see a lot of fresh faces out there and see how the older fans dig the new songs. Speaking of which, here is one called ‘Time to Think’ for all of you to dig into now. It’s a heavy hitter with some melodic edge to it. Lyrically, it is about giving oneself time to think about the consequences of their actions, both good and bad. This one has a lot of meaning to the members of the band and if anyone else can relate and connect to it, we’ve done our job.”
Check out “Time To Think” at Stereokiller now AT THIS LOCATION.
Revolver also released the album’s opening number, “Drink,” playing RIGHT HERE.
