From their self-built rehearsal space in an abandoned yarn factory on the west coast of Norway, ORMSKRIK have brewed up thrash metal in its blackest form since 2015. Though still in their teens, the guys give new life to the genre first pioneered by Slayer, Metallica and Anthrax and then evolved by Integrity, Toxic Holocaust and Power Trip. Having teamed up with metal legend Daniel Bergstrand and norwegian underground stalwarts Fysisk Format, ORMSKRIK have produced a debut album that bears the mark of a modern thrash metal classic. Today, we’re giving you their new vicious single “Descend to Madness”, and you can check it out below!
For fans of: Slayer, Power trip, Sibiir
This track is the first we collectively wrote as a band, and features one of our heaviest breakdowns. It is also serves as a homage to our local metal/hardcore scene.
The lyrics tell the story of a man prosecuted and haunted by his own people, to the point of insanity.
Mixed by Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, Behemoth, In Flames)
