Blackened, the new Connecticut-based hardcore/metal band featuring current and former members of Hatebreed (bassist Chris Beattie and original drummer and founding member Dave Russo) as well as current Connecticut contenders and alum alike, including vocalist Jay Reason (The Distance) and guitarist Chris Legg (Fastbreak), has posted a demo version of the song "Let Them Drink Venom" on its MySpace page.
For their forthcoming debut, appropriately titled "This Means War," the band has joined up with Think Fast! Records, a label not only responsible for introducing bands like Have Heart and Outbreak, but also spanning a back catalog containing veterans like Sick Of It All and Ignite. Think Fast! Records co-owner Ryan O'Connor comments: "When we received the Blackened demo tracks, we immediately knew that these guys were onto something special. The amazing line-up aside, these songs are crafted in a different vein than all of their past bands, which was the most impressive point of all. We're very excited to bring the first taste of Blackened to the world."
"This Means War" is scheduled for release on January 20, 2009.
