Despised Icon 1

Canadian tech-death outfit Despised Icon have inked a deal with Nuclear Blast Records and will be releasing a new full-length – their fist since 2009 – titled Beast this summer. The group comments:

“It’s official, we just signed to Nuclear Blast! It’s been 7 years since our last record and our batteries are fully recharged. Our new album Beast comes out this summer. You’ll hear sounds of our older slammin’ Death Metal days blended with the speed and technicality of our latest records. Cheers to everyone that has stood by us after all these years. Can’t wait to unleash the Beast.”
