Extreme metal group Hatchets For Hands hold nothing back with the release of their relentless new single “Age of Deceit” on Spotify and Apple Music. The release is just a taste of their newest material as the duo is currently holed up in the studio working on their untitled sophomore effort. The song premiered last Friday via Metal Sucks and was also added to Spotify’s popular New Metal Tracks and Death Metal & Beyond official playlists.
As the follow-up to 2018’s critically praised Convulsions Of A Dying Empire and recent single “Bad Men”, Hatchets For Hands are keeping listeners busy with “Age Of Deceit”, their first new track of 19’ which was released this morning on most streaming services. “Deceit” hits the listener hard with vocalist/drummer Cullen Poythress’ pummeling double-bass and furious, guttural screams. Guitarist/bassist Brian Parks has written an intricate layer of inventive guitar work that blends gothenburg esque picking, melody and thrash/death that would earn often hard earned approval from both longhair metal purists and modern mainstream converts alike.
