London based metallers KARYBDIS yesterday premiered the new video for their jaw-shattering melo-death track Avarice exclusively on Metal Hammer. The track is the second to be taken from their forthcoming sophomore album ‘Samsara‘ which is set for release on February 19th 2016.

Modern metal needs new heroes. As it becomes harder to spot diamonds twinkling in a murky, generic swamp of mimics and copycats, bands with the power, intelligence and style to drag the genre forward are more precious than ever. London’s Karybdis have long had something special about them: that hard-to-define essence of something better, something beyond.
“Avarice is greed. And the song’s content sifts from the individual greed of a single person, whether it be their intent, or being put into a situation where they are backed into making a selfish choice to survive in the world we live in. Ultimately we cannot escape the consequences of our actions,” vocalist Rich O’Donnell says.
Karybdis are set to enter 2016 in the form of their lives, with a brand new album that deserves to propel them to the forefront of the UK scene and beyond. This is metal made for the love of creativity and the thrill of heavy music’s ageless power. These are songs with brains, brawn and a huge heart. This is modern metal, Samsara is a revelation and Karybdis are the heroes we’ve been waiting for. Spread the word.
