Danish thrash band The Kandidate posted a trailer for the forthcoming LP "Facing the Imminent Prospect of Death," which is due out for release on January 27, 2012 through Napalm Records.

The press release from Napalm reads:

"Following their strong and uncompromising debut 'Until We Are Outnumbered', the Danish thrash metal machine revolving around vocalist Jacob Bredahl finally present their anxiously awaited follow-up. From the get-go, 'Facing the Imminent Prospect of Death' continues to deliver the band's characteristic vigor and intensity. Songs like 'Total War', 'Let the Maggots Have It', and 'Fucked in the Search for Life' speak a stern language dominated by heavy riffs and all-destroying grooves sure to cause more than one case of whiplash. The band's sound also includes death and hardcore elements that give the album a newfound energy. The recording, mixing, and mastering were personally overseen by Jacob Bredahl himself. His expertise is apparent in the resulting release. 'Facing the Imminent Prospect of Death' is a brutal riff rapid-fire barrage to be most enthusiastically received in the mosh pit!"
