Issues LORD OF WAR on the upcoming tour actions abroad, “We are beyond excited to join incredible artists such as Vader, Hate Eternal, and Threat Signal! This will be our first overseas tour and to follow it up, we’ll be immediately headlining the states in November and December! Pick up our new album Suffer out now on Unique Leader Records.”

Suffer was engineered and mixed by Daniel Castleman and Kelly Cairns (Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying, Carnifex, Winds Of Plague, Molotov Solution) and mastered by Miah Lajeunesse (Whitechapel, Aegaeon).

Metal Hammer offers of the new album, “Suffer absolutely trounces all-comers with an exhilarating blend of ultra-modern brutality, irresistible grooves, chilling atmospherics, and some startlingly refined and mature songwriting. Most importantly, it will definitely kick your face off.” In a 4.5/5 review of the record, New Noise Magazine champions a sound that, “finds a balance between Despised Icon’s technical deathcore and 7 Horns 7 Eyes’ atmospheric melodeath,” adding, “The band clearly understands how to execute all aspects of the deathcore style to perfection, which makes Suffer such a fine album…Modern death metal doesn’t get much better than this.” Wonderbox Metal concurs, “LORD OF WAR‘s second album is a finely-realized and impressive slab of high-energy death metal that has enough variety and interest to really stick out. Their brand of brutality features as much melodic feeling as it does deathcore beatdowns, making for an album that has depth, longevity and a massive amount of bite.” Adds Dead Rhetoric in an 8/10 score, “Suffer takes strong cues from the modern death metal scene and wraps them up into a punishing yet memorable package. Able to tap into both the atmospheric and deathcore communities with equal might… there should be plenty of metal fans who find something to enjoy with LORD OF WAR‘s latest. Heavy enough to knock down a few walls, but plenty of interesting things happening in the background to draw you in for future listens.”
