Escuela Grind, arguably one of the hardest working acts in all of metal, is back with a new EP dubbed DDEEAATHHMMEETTAALL due out January 12. The EP was mixed by Kurt Ballou (High On Fire, Gatecreeper, etc.), mastered by Nick Townsend (Cheap Trick, Dr. Dre), and even features a guest spot from Napalm Death vocalist Barney Greenway on the song "Meat Magnet".
In the meantime, you can get your head torn the fuck off by "Ball And Chain" above. The single features a video directed by Michael Jari Davidson (Alice In Chains) and recorded at a recent festival performance in Mexico City.
"DDEEAATHHMMEETTAALL is the third installment of our EP series where we dive into the genres that most influence this band," said Escuela Grind vocalist Katerina Economou. "Finishing this trilogy has been years in the works. We are so excited to release these songs as they are perhaps the best reflection of our live performance.
"The stage has honed these hectic songs to perfection. Originally we were going to have three songs on this EP, but we wanted to create another track that had a huge buildup. This eventually developed into this brutal song, 'Ball and Chain', that marks the point in our live shows where we have a wall of death every night. Lyrically, it references death metal tropes of murder and revenge, but with a decidedly feminine angle."
