Vitriol Announce New Drummer

Vitriol have officially welcomed Matt Kilner (Gorgasm) to the band as their new drummer. He will be replacing Scott Walker in the group.

The band commented:

“Those of you who caught us on our most recent tour in support of Exhumed might’ve noticed another new face behind the blast helm. We are very happy to announce that Matt Kilner (@nithing.bdm [also known from Gorgasm, Iniquitous Deeds, and Nithing]) will be handling full-time drum duties for Vitriol moving forward.

Many of you have asked what has happened to Scott Walker, our previous full-time drummer that is featured on our Pain EP and debut full-length. Scott‘s talent and company has been missed, but sadly, his work and lifestyle never permitted him to tour.

We’ve been blessed with the opportunity to rehearse and perform with several incredibly talented session drummers over the last three years, but we’re very pleased to have a new rock-solid foundation to continue building upon. You can catch the four of us again this April on our upcoming tour with Morbid Angel, Revocation, and Crypta. See you out there!”

Vitriol To Release Partially Re-Recorded Version Of Their “Antichrist” Demo

Vitriol will be digitally releasing a partially re-recorded version of their demo EP “Antichrist” on August 13. The effort, which has also been remixed and remastered, will also be available on vinyl and cassette at a later date. Vcalist Kyle Rasmussen commented:

“Vitriol‘s first introduction to the public was in 2012 by way of a three song digital release entitled Antichrist EP. Nearly a decade later we have decided to reach back and offer our most formative material with a proper look and sound. Remixed, remastered, and featuring newly recorded vocals, our goal was to let our fans see what we were through the lens of what we are now.”

Vitriol Premiere “The Parting Of A Neck” Live Video

Vitriol have premiered a new live video for their song “The Parting Of A Neck.” This track is from the band’s latest album “To Bathe From The Throat Of Cowardice.“ Frontman Kyle Rasmussen commented:

“Being this far along in a world without live music we’re feeling especially grateful that Dylan (producer) did such a beautiful job immortalizing this performance from our last tour. ‘The Parting Of A Neck‘ has always been a special song for us and has since grown only more significant. The song debuted as a couch-bound playthrough and seeing it get the live treatment at this point feels like the perfect way to punctuate a long period of striving. A true then and now. Vitriol offers tremendous thanks to those of you who have shown your support in these formative times. We are hard at work on what’s next.”

Vitriol Premiere “Hive Lungs” Music Video

Vitriol have premiered a new video for their song “Hive Lungs.” This track is from the band’s latest album “To Bathe From The Throat Of Cowardice.“

Guitarist Kyle Rasmussen commented:

“‘Hive Lungs‘ is a song that really came to life when we began to perform it live. James (the director) did a wonderful job capturing the energy we had been experiencing during that song night after night on stage. It is important to us that we have an authentic connection with our music while we play, and we wanted this video to demonstrate that.

‘To Bathe From The Throat Of Cowardice‘, for all its intensity, has many different intentions for the listener. We are excited to explore those colors as we continue to support of the album.”
