EXTINCTION A.D. + Metal Injection

"Thrashterpiece... Who does Extinction A.D. think they are just hogging all the good riffs like this for themselves?"
–Metal Injection

"A blend of early '90s Slayer and Sepultura filtered through a prism of Kill 'Em All. Check out Extinction A.D. if you're in the mood for groovy thrash that explodes with modern energy."

"A 21st-century powerhouse upgrade of Eighties thrash... The best aspects of early Metallica and Testament."
–Guitar World

"Extinction A.D. may very well write the best Slayer riffs that Jeff Hanneman never got around to writing but they're more than a simple re-thrash band... If thrash is a machine gun firing wildly in all directions, Extinction A.D. is a sniper with a laser sight."

"Rick Jimenez is the kind of guy that's in this for life... On Extinction A.D.'s debut full-length, Faithkiller, the sound has gotten thrashier but no less pummeling than Jimenez's past two decades of music creation, only now he's the one speaking out against injustice and corruption."

Extinction A.D.'s debut full-length Faithkiller comes out Friday, August 21st on Good Fight Music and today Metal Injection has served up a stream of the entire album.

Stream this new "thrashterpiece," here.

Pre-order, here.

Built on a love of old Testament, Metallica, and Slayer, Extinction A.D. takes the best elements of the old-school and synthesizes a new strain of 2015 thrash metal. Sweet riffs and blazing leads are delivered with futuristic precision and power, while frontman Rick Jimenez (ex-This Is Hell) calls out political corruption and hypocrisy in the tradition of the greats.

Faithkiller was recorded and mixed by Brett Romnes (I Am the Avalanche, Anthony Raneri), and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, Noisem).
