MASSACRE launches new track ‘Shield Of The Son’ online

Death metal legends MASSACRE have returned with their first studio album effort in almost 20 years! This new album, Back From Beyond‘, is “pure Florida death metal, the way it was meant to be played from the Sunshine State” (DECIBEL MAGAZINE.com) and is now available in Europe!

Terry Butler (bass) comments: “We chose ‘Shield Of The Son’ because it’s a song that is further into the album. This gives our fans a good idea of the strength of the album. It showcases what MASSACRE is all about: catchy, riffy, brutal Florida Death Metal!!!”

The recently launched official video clip for the album’s title track can be watched here:

Returning to the roots of MASSACRE’s early 90’s trademark sound, “Back From Beyond” was recorded and mixed by Tim Vazquez of CGM Studios, Florida, and features original MASSACRE members Rick Rozz (Guitars; ex-MANTAS/DEATH) and Terry Butler (Bass; OBITUARY, ex-DEATH/SIX FEET UNDER), as well as Ed Webb (Vocals; ex-DIABOLIC/EULOGY) and Mike Mazzonetto (Drums; ex-PAIN PRINCIPLE). “Back From Beyond” features cover artwork by Toshihiro Egawa (CRYPTOPSY, KRISIUN, DEVOURMENT, etc.) and can be obtained in the following formats:
