If you've been paying attention at all, then you've seen the name Escuela Grind pop up quite a few times. The New England extreme metal unit has been tearing things the fuck up both on the stage and in the studio lately, and we're more than excited to present their new record Memory Theater in full for you right now! Across its nine tracks, Escuela Grind effortlessly serves up some of the most grinding and intense metal you'll hear this year with a healthy dose of kick-your-teeth-into-the-back-of-your-skull breakdowns.
"On the new LP, we wanted a fantastical architectural theme, as the Memory Theater is meant to symbolize this internal building, composed of infinitely-expanding, constructed rooms," said vocalist Katerina Economou.
"We wanted the artwork to show that each song is a 'room' within the mind. And each room contains symbolic objects of all ideas. Sound-wise, we realized how important the physical aspect of our live performances is, and how we wanted our riffs and grooves to make people move. We demoed and composed these songs multiple times to get them exactly the way we wanted them."
Memory Theater is out September 30. Pre-orders are available here.
