ANGER AS ART To Release 'Hubris Inc.' In February

"Hubris Inc.", the fourth album from Los Angeles-based thrashers ANGER AS ART, will be released on February 5 , 2013 via Old School Metal Records. According to ANGER OF ART founder Steve Gaines (ABATTOIR, BLOODLUST, TACTICS, BITCH, DREAMS OF DAMNATION, PAGAN WAR MACHINE), the follow-up to 2009's "Disfigure" offers the kind of vicious, memorably penned thrash/speed metal that fans have come to expect without simply retracing the steps taken on previous albums.

"Hubris Inc." includes several guest appearances: "Rage And Retribution" features Betsy Bitch on vocals, Jim Durkin (DARK ANGEL) on lead guitar and Timothy Gaines (STRYPER) on bass; Steve Nelson (EVIL DEAD) contributes backing vocals on "The Evil You Create"; and "Speed Kills" features Mark Caro (ABATTOIR) on lead guitar. The latter track was actually written for ABATTOIR back in 1984 and is performed by all ABATTOIR members. It's the last opportunity to ever hear a new ABATTOIR song!
