Metal ‘Super Group’ Releases New Single, ‘Enter The Gallows’

Fledgling metal band Repentance has released its latest single.

The band — composed of former SOiL and Dirge Within guitarist Shaun Glass, Stuck Mojo front man Robby J. Fonts, lead guitarist Markus Johansson (THEM), drummer Anthony Lien and bassist Mike Sylvester — released its “first official” single ‘Enter The Gallows’ Oct. 18.

The song’s musical arrangement will appeal to fans of Lamb of God, Chimaira, Murkocet and other similar acts.  One could even argue that there is a hint of a Slayer and Machine Head influence incorporated into the arrangement.  Musically speaking, the song seems to come across as a sort of social commentary, though no explanation as to the meaning of the song’s lyrics in its news release.

‘Enter The Gallows’ was engineered by Chuck Macack (Born of Osiris, Oceano) and mastered by Chris Collier (Prong, Korn, RiotV) of CMC21 Productions at ElectroWerks Recording in Downers Grove, Illinois.

While the band is calling its new single its “first official” single, it is actually the band’s third single so far.  It follows the release of the band’s debut “demo” ‘Collide‘ on May 14 and its follow-up, ‘Born To Choose‘ only days later on May 20.

‘Enter The Gallows” debut comes only days before the band is scheduled to play as a special guest for Devildriver at Route 20 on Nov. 12. The performance is part of Devildriver’s “The Outlaws Til The End Tour,’ which is in support of Devildriver’s new outlaw country covers record Outlaws Til The End Vol. 1.  The record was released July 6 via Napalm Records.  Tickets are available here.
