Usurpress - Reveal New Track And Album Details

On February 2018, we'll witness the release of Interregnum, the 4th album and follow up to the ambitious concept suite The Regal Tribe (2016), by Swedish self proclaimed "primitive and progressive" death metallers Usurpress. The album will be available via Agonia Records. Listen to the first single "In Books Without Pages" below to get a first taste from it.

The album was recorded and mixed in the world-renowned studio Dugout Productions (Soilwork, Behemoth, In Flames, Dark Funeral, etc.) in the band's hometown of Uppsala, Sweden.

Usurpress have made the following statement about the new album: "This time we wanted to challenge the establish dogmas and indeed our own predetermined ideas of what makes death metal sound like death metal. We have taken notes from the history of heavy guitar driven music before the times of death metal, in fact; before the times of heavy metal. We have taken inspiration from the hard rock and prog rock movements of the early seventies and put a heavy death twist on it. For those who feel like retching at the sound of this; we can assure you that this is by all means a death metal album and not some silly retro 70-ties throwback 5 years too late for the trend. It's simply Usurpressbut slower, heavier and way more complex."
