BLACKENED Featuring HATEBREED Members: New Song Posted Online

BLACKENED, the new Connecticut-based hardcore/metal band featuring current and former members of the juggernaut that is HATEBREED (bassist Chris Beattie and original drummer and founding member Dave Russo) as well as current Connecticut contenders and alum alike, including vocalist Jay Reason (THE DISTANCE) and guitarist Chris Legg (FASTBREAK), has issued the following update:

"We're excited to announce that we have a brand new track for you from BLACKENED's upcoming EP 'This Means War'. The track 'Unscathed' is a good indication of what you can expect from the bands debut full-length, set for release on January 20! Originally announced as an EP, we're happy to report that the debut will now be a proper full-length album. Recorded at Planet Z with Zeuss (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, SHADOWS FALL), this record is surely going to be a monster. You can stream the song from BLACKENED's MySpace page. We've also made the song available for download (free of charge) from the media page of the Think Fast! web site."

Founded on the terms of combining the roots of traditional hardcore with the sheer brutalness of metal, BLACKENED is quite simply a wrecking ball that is stopping at nothing in its path. For their forthcoming debut, appropriately titled "This Means War", the band has joined up with Think Fast! Records, a label not only responsible for introducing bands like HAVE HEART and OUTBREAK, but also spanning a back catalog containing veterans like SICK OF IT ALL and IGNITE. Think Fast! Records co-owner Ryan O'Connor comments: "When we received the BLACKENED demo tracks, we immediately knew that these guys were onto something special. The amazing lineup aside, these songs are crafted in a different vein than all of their past bands, which was the most impressive point of all. We're very excited to bring the first taste of BLACKENED to the world."
