Ripped To Shreds Premiere New Song “Violent Compulsion For Conquest”

Ripped To Shreds have teamed up with ex-Vital Remains guitarist Dave Suzuki for a new song titled “Violent Compulsion For Conquest.“ This track is from the band’s new album “劇變 (Jubian),“ which will be released on October 14. Vocalist Andrew Lee commented:

“‘Violent Compulsion‘ is easily one of our favorites off this record with the sickest double bass Brian‘s ever laid down on record. Dave Suzuki was also kind enough to lay down a guest solo, and we’re all huge Vital Remains fans. I had ‘Dechristianize‘ on repeat all throughout high school!”

“It was an extreme honor to be called upon to help curate an installment of the truly transformative Metal Massacre series. Rather than concentrate on one particular era or style, I dutifully attempted to bring the best sub-genres metal has produced over the past 40 years into a cohesive portrait of what today’s underground metal scene faithfully represents. May it, Metal Blade Records and Metal Massacre forever reign.”
