Forty Winters Streaming New Song

South Florida heavy metal outfit Forty Winters has teamed up with Lambgoat.com to premiere brand new track "Return to the Earth" from the band's upcoming "Isolation" digital EP, due out this fall. Stream "Return to the Earth" in the player below.

"This EP release was designed to get new material to our following as quick and easy as possible," vocalist Xavier Vicuna told Lambgoat. "We have been fortunate enough to be on the road giving Reflection the proper tour cycle it deserved, but it was time for new music and it was time to give back. Kids asking at shows and online when they could expect new jams really pushed us to get in the studio and track a few of the songs we were already working on and happy with."

"Isolation" was recorded in late August with Charles J. Wall and Phil Pluskota at Sonic Assault Studios in Cape Coral, Florida (Betraying The Martyrs, Abiotic, King Conquer).

"We really tried to warp our roots and influences into a newer, more aggressive approach," added Vicuna. "We've grooved, we've jammed and we've dropped it, but the goal has always been to evolve. The new stuff is pretty evil and a lot more genuine; we really focused on being ourselves and doing what felt natural. It's gonna be pretty raw - a lot of slamming and thrashing." More...
