White Widows Pact has revealed the opening track off upcoming debut album True Will – stream "Landlord" exclusively on Metal Injection, here.
The Brooklyn quintet perfects its Madball-meets-Crowbar sound on True Will, also giving a nod or two to Napalm Death's mid-90s output on the ripping "Landlord."
True Will was recorded and mixed by Dean Baltulonis (Sick of It All, Modern Life Is War) and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, High on Fire), and comes out October 16th on New Damage Records.
In the words of Metal Injection, it is a "perfect blend of in-your-face hardcore meets groovy-as-fuck metal."
"The Watch," another song off the new album, was premiered by Noisey last month, here.
Central to Brooklyn's metal scene, White Widows Pact is fronted by Dave Castillo, co-owner of Saint Vitus Bar, the city's hub of heavy music. Castillo and his bandmates also do time in other bands such as Primitive Weapons, Grudges, and Cleanteeth.
"Insanely heavy... Sludgy, ripping guitars... When looking for a new band to get angry to, White Widows Pact have you covered on every front."
"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."
"Hardcore peppered with Crowbar's Obedience Thru Suffering..."
"The grooves, the sludge, the hyena-in-a-blender vocals – all amped up to the next level."
