STHENO - Wardance LP is out now

The LP comes as special edition on 100 beige/black marbled vinyland as standard edition on 250 black vinyl.

LP/ Shirt Bundles are available in limited quantities.

 

From beginning ofnext week , the album will be available on all digital platforms.

 

The album's 11 tracks blaze a trail of fury by way of blistering tremolo and battle-ready percussion. STHENO has blurred the boundaries between grindcore, black, death and other extreme strains of heavy metal since 2013. The band was founded by like-minded individuals among the Greek grind and crust scene with the intentions of creating harsh music while drawing inspiration from black and death metal without any regards, or limitations, to the structures surrounding each respective sub-genre.

 

After some line-up changes and several concerts in Greece, Germany, Switzerland and France, STHENO are ready to unleash their new album "Wardance", which features Christian Chaco, frontman of German death-grinders KEITZER, on vocals. Produced by Stelios "Stelth" Koslidis, the record is a war-themed concept album which is bound to catapult the band into the higher echelon of extreme underground metal.

 

To keep it extremely unrelenting without being stagnant and too monotonous is a difficult art form, but STHENO manages to stay away from all this and delivers an album full of metallic mayhem while keeping it fresh and dynamic at the same time.

Press:

 

"This record oozes filth while aiming for your jugular and it never lets up, that is a fact! Every song is a raging anthem that is meant to inflect audio torment on the listener. I fucking love the way STHENO’s songs get me hyped. This is why I’m super stoked to share with y’all Wardance in full below." - CVLT NATION

 

"They’re not fucking kidding either. Once the command is given Stheno unleash a rapid-fire percussive cannonade, a firestorm of wild, brazen riffage, and a torrent of enraged howling vocals. With only one brief pause, the intensity is unrelenting as the band create a frenzied musical battlefield. Yet for such a full-bore, no-holds-barred assault, the song also has a throughline of exotic, dervish-like melody that gets its hooks in the head despite how brief the track is." - NO CLEAN SINGING

 

"but damn these 11 compositions are so well written and well played that makes “Wardance” undoubtedly one of the highlights of the year in extreme sound." - METAL INVADER

 

"Very short but also intense, Wardance offers a compendium of pure violence under the sign of Black Metal. Stheno draws from unhealthy and raw Old School roots to relentlessly strike us during nearly twenty-five minutes." - ACTA INFERNALIS
