Byzantine Offers Seven-Minute Teaser From New Album, "Oblivion Beckons"

West Virginian thrashers BYZANTINE have posted a seven-minute teaser track online, featuring snippets of tracks from the band's forthcoming record, "Oblivion Beckons." The track is available on the band's MySpace page, which also showcases the band's recent cover of eyehategod's "Shoplift," which appeared on the double disc tribute album, "For The Sick" alongside label mates Kylesa and The Esoteric.

Set for a January 22 release through Prosthetic Records, "Oblivion Beckons" is the follow-up to 2005's "...And They Shall Take Up Serpents," which saw a 2005 release and led to touring throughout the United States and Canada, including an appearance at New England Metal and Hardcore Festival in 2006, as well as the release of the band's first ever DVD earlier this year, "Salvation." The DVD features a live performance film, exclusive bootlegs, an uncut video for the track "Jeremiad," and behind the scenes footage and interviews. A trailer can be viewed here.
