INTEGRITY: Suicide Black Snake Details Released

The ongoing reign of terror from INTEGRITY continues in 2013, with the release of the iniquitous outfit’s tenth full-length, Suicide Black Snake.

 

Beyond an indisputable history as being an ultra brutal live act and basically being the most metal act associated with the top reigning champion acts of the 90s hardcore/metal scene, INTEGRITY has morphed into more of a musical entity, releasing countless splits and limited vinyl releases, taking back rights to seminal albums from the band’s discography and re-releasing them in proper formats, constantly enshrouded in bleak end-time/anti-life propaganda. Over time, creator Dwid Hellion has stripped the once quintet down to the bare essentials, having written and recorded solely with Robert Orr alone for the past five years, the visual and musical dimensions of INTEGRITY have grown fathoms more expansive, culminating into the most diverse album in the band’s storied existence with Suicide Black Snake.

 

This week, Hellion releases some exclusive insight on the creation of this expansive new beast and working with Orr: “Orr brings a new dynamic to Integrity; he’s aggressively surprising while still being able to blend the old sound into modern times without sounding contrived. The new song direction was based entirely off the music that Orr and I listen to, and what we feel we would like to hear, but is not being made. This has always been the essence of INTEGRITY.”

 

Following last week’s release of the track “Beasts As Gods,” this week the full track listing and album artwork for Suicide Black Snake has been exposed. “The album artwork is a representation of the many avenues that we have traveled musically and aesthetically” Hellion divulges, being responsible for the artwork and layout of the album “I hope that the imagery can help expand the experience to our audience.”

 

On June 11th the vinyl pressing of Suicide Black Snake will be unleashed via A389 Recordings and the CD via Magic Bullet Records. View the album’s cover artwork and more RIGHT HERE.

INTEGRITY will embark on an extensive tour offensive leading up to and straight through the release of Suicide Black Snake. The action begins with a one-off in New Haven, Connecticut May 23rd alongside Overcast. The next two days will take the band’s wrath to our northern allies to the first time ever as the A389 Canadian Invasion slams Montreal and Toronto. Support from Homewrecker and Ilsa will be provided for all three of these shows. Directly following the Canadian Invasion INTEGRITY will take part in the massive annual Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore, performing the final night of the gala with Ascension, Carpathian Forest, Exodus, Glorior Belli, Pentagram, Sleep, Venom, Citizens Arrest, Converge, Magrudergrind and more. A brutal tour through the Southeast states with Gehenna and Full Of Hell follow, as all three acts trek to Chaos In Tejas alongside Bolt Thrower, Final Conflict, Manilla Road, Abigail, Kromosom and countless more. A massive European festival assault will consume much of July and August as well.

 

Further sermons on the coming of Suicide Black Snake should be expected over the coming months, along with additional INTEGRITY live actions.
