At War Streaming New Song "At War" Online

Heavy Artillery has issued the following announcement about At War streaming a new song on their MySpace page:

"With their new studio album, Infidel, hitting streets on August 18th 2009, US war metal legends AT WAR are pleased to give fans a taste of what they can expect with the unveiling of the eponymous track 'At War'. Their first new studio album in over 20 years, Infidel is certain to rank amongst AT WAR’s esteemed discography as the band’s most brutal and uncompromising work to date. The previewed track 'At War' is one of nine tracks featured on Infidel- nine tracks of pure war metal the likes of which can only be delivered by AT WAR.

"Formed in 1983 by guitarist Shawn Helsel, bassist and vocalist Paul Arnold and drummer Dave Stone AT WAR went on to solidify themselves as one premier metal bands in the American underground. After the reviews and college radio play of their 1985 demo Eat Lead, AT WAR went on to release their albums Ordered to Kill (1986) and Retaliatory Strike (1987) for New Renaissance Records. A follow up to Retaliatory Strike was recorded in 1994 but ultimately scrapped which prompted AT WAR to go on an indefinite hiatus only to have the beast awaken from its slumber in 2006 to begin working the material that would become Infidel. Throughout 2007 and 2008, a series of triumphant US shows and festival appearances in Europe and Mexico showed AT WAR at the top of their game and unphased by the passage of time or musical trends. Earlier this year AT WAR once again entered Pyramid Sound to record Infidel with Alex Perialas known for not only has work on AT WAR’S seminal 1987 album Retaliatory Stike but for genre defining albums by such bands as ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT, OVERKILL, NUCLEAR ASSUALT, ETC. Infidel’s stunning cover artwork comes courtesy of legendary illustrator and photographer Claudio Bergamin."

Upcoming At War shows:

7/22 @ Volume 11 in Raleigh, NC with Mobile Death Camp, Kiff, and Armored Uprising
7/25 @ Alley Katz in Richmond VA with Beyond Fallen and guests.

Never heard these guys before, but the new track sounds a lot like the latest album "Hell" by Venom.
