THE BANNER + Metal Injection

As the countdown to Greying ticks on, The Banner unveil one more of the new album's songs. Stream "Circle of Salt," exclusively via Metal Injection, here.

Greying, The Banner's third full-length (and first since 2008!), hits stores December 9th on Good Fight Music. Fans can pre-order the LP, CD, and various merch options, now from Good Fight's official store, and the digital tracks via iTunes and Bandcamp.

"Circle of Salt" is a rugged slab of absolute despair, exemplifying the key elements of The Banner's trademarked sound: crushing hardcore, blackened horror, and dark ambience. As Metal Injection puts it, "every second of this track is heavier than the one before it." Over a decade after their formation, and with hundreds of bands influenced by their melding of hardcore, metal, and goth vibes, The Banner continue to push the game forward.

Greying was engineered, mixed, and mastered by Will Putney (Body Count, The Acacia Strain) and Randy Leboeuf.

Other new tracks off Greying were recently premiered via Revolver and Alternative Press.
