PLAGUE YEARS released their critically lauded Circle Of Darkness full-length last September via MNRK Heavy. Mining the subterranean depths once unearthed on classic Sepultura albums like Beneath The Remains and Arise, with the vicious bite of Germanic slabs like In The Sign Of Evil by Sodom and the Hall of Fame ’80s output of Slayer, the devilish and down-tuned death worship within PLAGUE YEARS serves as a demonic calling card for the foursome; a brutal counterbalance to their otherwise like minded thrash revivalists. On Circle Of Darkness, PLAGUE YEARS reunites with engineer Arthur Rizk, whose work with Power Trip, Tomb Mold, Candy, and Cavalera Conspiracy has propelled him to the front of the horde amidst the resurgence of crossover thrash.

“…PLAGUE YEARS turn chugging into an art form, making simple stomps feel like genuine riffs.” – Decibel Magazine

“…a death thrash rager…” – Revolver

“…nothing short of a modern thrash classic…” – Metal Injection

“Thrash has always been a diverse genre, with equal room for goofy party vibes and infernal paeans to the abyss. In 2020, it’s the latter approach that seems most fitting and timely, and PLAGUE YEARS have absolutely nailed the desolate spirit of the age via some truly ripping thrash fucking metal.” – Blabbermouth

“…the quartet just freaking rages on songs such as the sledgehammer opener ‘Play The Victim’ or surgical strike of the title track. Somewhere, there is a skate park where someone has this cranked to 11 and is carving the bowl to bits to Incantation.” – Vancouver Sun

“When this band lays down a groove, the walls shake.” – New Noise Magazine
