WHITE WIDOWS PACT + AllMusic

AllMusic has premiered White Widows Pact's "Thirteen Years of War," the third single to be revealed off the Brooklyn band's debut full-length, True Will.

Stream it, here.

"Thirteen Years of War" drives hard, owning a space that brings the deep, Southern grooves of Crowbar together with the urgent forward motion of mid-'90s Napalm Death, under one grimy New York City roof. Frontman David Castillo, also co-owner of Brooklyn's preeminent metal venue, Saint Vitus Bar, holds court with shredded screams – what MetalSucks has described as "hyena-in-a-blender" – conveying the pure existential horror of city life.

AllMusic calls the band "exceptionally heavy" and hails the new song as "a particularly pissed-off four-minute track," full of "howling vocals and buzzing guitars."

True Will comes out October 16th on New Damage Records. The album was recorded and mixed by Dean Baltulonis (Sick of It All, Modern Life Is War) and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, High on Fire). 

"Insanely heavy... Sludgy, ripping guitars... When looking for a new band to get angry to, White Widows Pact have you covered on every front."
–Noisey

"
White Widows Pact's mix of contemporary hardcore and sludgy Southern metal are the exception to the rule that metalheads and punks can't get along."
–Alternative Press

"Hardcore peppered with Crowbar's
 Obedience Thru Suffering..."

–Revolver

"The grooves, the sludge, the hyena-in-a-blender vocals – all amped up to the next level."

–MetalSucks
