ION DISSONANCE has unveiled new track “Suffering: The Art of Letting Go,” today via MetalSucks and below. Cast the First Stone will be released November 18th on Good Fight Music. The album was produced by the band’s guitarist Antoine Lussier. Fall shows include dates with FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY and a slot on Texas Revolution Fest with HATEBREED. See the full list of dates below.
“Suffering: The Art of Letting Go” appears on upcoming full-length Cast the First Stone, the Montreal band’s first album since 2010. A monstrous return, Cast the First Stone shows Ion Dissonance at its best, delivering lethal bursts of chaos, color, and groove – the next level of the brutal, technical style it pioneered over a decade ago.
“Founding Fathers of Deathcore,” as MetalSucks puts it, the Montrealers mixed dizzying math and earthquaking heaviness back in the early/mid ’00s, solidifying a sound that served as a gateway for the deathcore boom that followed. Along with French Canadian countrymen Despised Icon and US bands like The Red Chord, Ion Dissonance’s impact on the current state of metal and hardcore is massive – and with new album Cast the First Stone, these forefathers have returned to continue pushing the genre forward.
Ion Dissonance frontman Kevin McCaughey says, “Cast the First Stone is a solid mix of all the essential elements you would expect to hear from us, with some new twists added. This is the next chapter in the Ion Dissonance discography and we are far from finished.”
