With the release of brutal Finnish crossover outfit FORESEEN‘s second LP, Grave Danger, nearing release in late April, the first sampling from the record has been let off the chain through a public assault at Decibel Magazine. “Chemical Heritage” firmly establishes what FORESEEN‘s by-the-throat approach to infusing hardcore’s furious wrath into thrash metal’s blazing speed is all about. Let FORESEEN’s “Chemical Heritage” loose at Decibel and right here, below.
Grave Danger will see LP, CD, and digital North American release via 20 Buck Spin on April 24th, with Svart handling the release for European territories. Watch for audio samples, preorder info, and more to be issued in the days ahead.

Continuing the direction of its predecessor, Grave Danger delivers the punishingly relentless pace and aggression now firmly established by the iron hammer of FORESEEN. With scraping, throat-ripping vocals over lacerating thrash dominance, possessed hardcore breakdowns that twist seamlessly with an ever-increasing ’80s heavy metal tenacity, exemplified on tracks like “Fearmonger,” “Bloodline,” and “Chemical Heritage.” FORESEEN also embraces social commentary and critique throughout as heard in the lyrics to “Government Cuts” and “Suicide Bomber,” among others.
With new albums from several of the leading crossover bands of the current era releasing in early 2017, FORESEEN is set to carry the banner for the United Forces representing Finland and Europe in a genre particularly known and grown in the US. Perhaps a perfect moment in time to unleash the fury of politically-minded no-joke crossover once again, 20 Buck Spin presents this new European invasion into North America during this shockingly dark hour.
