The wait is almost over for Exmortus’ new album The Sound of Steel, and in anticipation of its release next Friday, June 8, the band is giving audiences one more preview of its new record.
The band debuted its new single ‘Victory or Death’ on Friday. The nearly four-minute song highlights the band’s modern shredding abilities while also crossing that with its equally familiar classical shredding for its musical foundation. The song is streaming online now and can be purchased via Spotify, Apple Music and Bandcamp.
Pre-orders for The Sound of Steel are open now. It will be available on CD, digital and limited vinyl pressings. Its track listing and vinyl pressings’ information is noted below.
