“Anyone who’s been listening to our records for a while knows that the closing track of all our albums is different than the rest of the songs,” the band explains. “It always has a more melodic and epic vibe. ‘Season of the Damned II’ is no different and concludes the new record on a sublime yet sorrowful note.”
Merciless Destruction marks the awaited return of Get the Shot.
As with No Peace In Hell (2014) and Infinite Punishment (2017), the upcoming fourth album sees the band exploring new territories of extreme music, while sticking to its roots and its fierce DIY approach to music.
Following the thrash-influenced Infinite Punishment, Get the Shot incorporate death metal and beatdown elements on Merciless Destruction. Over countless tours across the globe, the band has taken inspiration from many bands along the way and refined its sound, while also taking influence from some of the top-heavy artists such as Obituary, Cannibal Corpse, and Machine Head.
On Merciless Destruction, Get the Shot consolidate their independent approach despite a tedious and fraught recording process. Hardcore community anchorage has never been greater, driven by a clear strategy, a group on top of their game, and unwavering dedication.
After more than 500 concerts on three continents, including some on the biggest international stages such as Hellfest, Jera On Air, Summerbreeze, and Groezrock, the five members remain committed to the core values of authenticity, integrity, and equality at the heart of the hardcore movement, while addressing with disillusioned realism the flaws of an era defined by blind individualism.
The truth is what we get with Get the Shot: straight forward, no sugar-coating.
As brutal and cruel as reality can be, the ability to confront and overcome it depends on our ability to face it head-on.
