Demonic #7

     

(single)

     
         
         
     
             
Mordred are a cross over thrash metal band from the USA, forming in 1984, releasing their debut album 'Fool's Game' in 1989, with their sophomore album 'In This Life' emerging in 1991. The bands third album 'The Next Room' followed in 1994, before the band split-up, each member going their separate ways. The band reformed in 2013, releasing a new single 'Baroness', in 2015. The four song E.P. 'Volition' was released in 2020...    
             
...with new single 'Demonic #7' released in 2021 - taken from the bands forthcoming album 'The Dark Parade', due for release in the summer. 'The Dark Parade' will be the bands first album in over twenty five years! Rising to prominence during the eighties thrash metal evolution, Mordred stood out from the crowd by fusing elements of funk and hip hop into their thrash metal roots. After three albums and the quintessential single 'Everyday's A Holiday', Mordred split-up...    
             
...reforming in 2013, releasing a new single in 2015, and a new E.P. in 2020. Recapturing their classic sound - rooted in thrash but exploring the alternative avenues of funk and hip hop - the 'Volition' E.P. was very well received, with the bands new album a continuation of their new found hunger and fresh outlook.    
             
So what of the new single? 'Demonic #7' thunders into life, pleasing thrash metal fans everywhere. The opening groove laden riff cruises along at an energetic pace, giving way to Mordred's more classic, and uniquely individual, sound. Mordred have fire in their belly, sounding eager with a point to prove - but to honest, they don't have a point to prove, they are a pioneering, innovative band, who are icons for many and legends in the metal community.    
             
Overall, new single 'Demonic #7' is a mouth watering appetiser for the bands highly anticipated new album - their first in over twenty five years!
