Plaguemace announce debut record, Reptilian Warlords, out on November 17th via Napalm Records
Throughout their first year of performing live, up-and-coming Danish death metal outfit Plaguemace racked up 25 concerts, including several headlining gigs and opening slots for bands like Baest, Katla, Crocell, Left To Die and labelmates Nervosa, earning themselves a reputation as an explosive live band. Today, the neck-bending, old school death metal quintet announces their debut record, Reptilian Warlords, presenting the first taste of what to expect with their ruthlessly groovy first single, “Impenetrable Leather”.
On Reptilian Warlords, the band states, “Reptilian Warlords is the first in a series of concept albums taking place in our own fictional universe. The story has been torn apart chronologically, and will be put together throughout this, and the following releases. So stay tuned to find out what happens next. The themes of Reptilian Warlords include ANGER, VENGEANCE, DESIRE, WAR and ENRAGING BLOODTHIRST”. On their first single, the band adds, “’Impenetrable Leather’ is a short ferocious onslaught, depicting the ruthless brutality of the barbarian war clan. Armed with nothing but skin made of impenetrable leather, these brutes show absolutely no mercy as they mow down the enemy”. There is no doubt that fans of bands such as Grave, High on Fire, Entombed and Obituary will enjoy the first full-length of one of the most promising bands of the new generation of old school death metal.
Reptilian Warlords will be released on November 17th via Napalm Records. Pre-orders are now available here.
