Featured in our extensive Heavy Hearts for a Hope Filled Cause piece HERE, bleak metal/hardcore hybrid xIRON SHARPENS IRONx is about to release a new EP and our friend Matt Horowitz at The Witzard has just premiered the band’s new vicious single “Emotion Over Sincerity”!

Blending the song structures of hardcore with Black and Death metal and drawing from such beasts of the scene as Converge, Dying Fetus, Cattle Decapitation, NAILS, and, xIRON SHARPS IRONx comes hard with a proper teaser of their upcoming album, ‘The Aftermath of Tragedy’, which will be released on July 1, 2022 for physical distribution and on all streaming platforms.

“The inspiration behind this song speaks to the endless cycle that we live as humans.”

Vocalist and guitarist Larry Passenier further comments on the track: “”We are never satisfied with what we have and that constant need for more validation and consumption of materialistic and manufactured material has become a means of life for many. Rather than focus on mental health or the many problems the world struggles with on a constant basis, we tend to become obsessed with celebrity court cases, the latest fads on TikTok, gate-keeping on message boards, and politicians that could give two f**ks about us. Cut your ties and turn off your television. Instead of being drawn into meaningless media, work on bettering yourself and the world for you and your loved ones”.

“The Aftermath of Tragedy” comes out on July 1st 2022 (pre-save HERE). Physical copies of the album will be available at the band’s CD Release in Grand Rapids at Skelletones with: HOODS, Smash Your Enemies, Arcline, and TheCutthroats.
