Switchblade Rosie Streaming New Song "Gale Force Brutality"

Oklahoma City's progressive metal wizards Switchblade Rosie are streaming a track from their upcoming EP, "Nocturnal Guest," due out on March 17th. The song in questions is called "Gale Force Brutality," and can be heard below.

On the day of release, Switchblade Rosie will be performing in OKC, as well as premiering a new music video for the song "Nocturnal Guest." The details of the event can be found on Facebook. The following press release was also issued about the band:

"Steeped in their love of jazz, metal, and classical music, the members of Switchblade Rosie have honed their sound into a package that combines influences from all these genres and pushes them one step further. Inspired by everything from John Coltrane to Meshuggah, Death, and even Bach, these forward-thinking gents believe in the idea that music should never be singularly genre-specific. Their unique take on progressive metal places a mélange of classical melodies and jazzy rhythms at the forefront of an aggressive and emotionally delivered assault.

"Following the release of a debut EP and music video in October of 2010, Switchblade Rosie quickly advanced in the ranks of Oklahoma’s music scene as reports of their memorable live performances spread. Taking notes all the while, the band reformed itself in November of 2011, abandoning keyboards for live performances but stepping up the visual and aural impact of the music on all levels. A new EP entitled Nocturnal Guest is set for release on March 17th, 2012, and promises to deliver yet a new level of the energy and innovation Switchblade Rosie have become known for."
