Surgeon Streaming "Chemical Reign" Title Track

As the second full-length from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based metal outfit Surgeon nears its triumphant release onto public ears this Spring, today the band releases another brand new track from the opus, entitled "Chemical Reign."

Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles has posted an exclusive listen to the title track to Surgeon's new album... unleash “Chemical Reign” right here. The following press release was also issued about the album:

"While Surgeon’s output may be simply classified as 'progressive metal' to some, the band ventures into foreign territory for most by-the-books classical and fusion acts of the progressive metal umbrella. Perhaps simply 'epic metal' is a more defining tag, as the talented crew seamlessly blends a variety of rugged post-death and post-doom elements into their craft, infectiously creating a sound all their own, but undoubtedly in the vein of notable bands including Pharaoh, Atlantean Kodex and Slough Feg.

"A shockingly unknown band outside of the local scene until now, Surgeon propels an organic, flowing style of progressive metal with bold rock buildups, which also merges into the realms of epic, classic doom. Comprised of vocalist/bassist Sean Bolton, lead guitarist Lydia Giordano and drummer Ruston Grosse (ex-Rumpelstiltskin Grinder, ex-Woe, Master tour drummer), the band recorded their debut album Angry Guest at Electrical Audio in Chicago by Steve Albini, self-releasing it onto the masses in 2008.

"Surgeon's alloy of metals shines more than ever on the band’s ambitious second opus, Chemical Reign. Boasting nearly fifty minutes of material recorded with Kevin Antreassian at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, New Jersey (Mike Portnoy, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Russell Allen of Symphony X), Antreassian was able to capture the band’s live dynamics, the band unlocking new potentials only grazed upon before during previous recording sessions."

Surgeon has confirmed the official release date of "Chemical Reign" as May 19th, the same day the band will perform a local record release show for the album at Philly hotspot Johnny Brenda’s, alongside Ominous Black, Swarm of Arrows, and Skeleton Hands.
