Ring in your weekend with a cathartic slow-motion kick to the jugular courtesy of industry web-portal Metal Insider and their exclusive track premiere of “The Well” from West Coast  metal goliaths ARMED FOR APOCALYPSE. Oozing with tar-thick, sludge-centric enormity and southern-tinged harmonies, the tune appears on the band’s forthcoming The Road Will End full-length.


Comments team AFA in a collective statement: “’The Well’ is a giant, slobbering beast of a track and we are excited to set it free and watch it destroy everything in its path. The riffs are so filthy they are NSFW.”

Featuring ten tracks of pure, soul-surging urgency, The Road Will End is a complex study in heaviness. No triggers, no wanky “shredding,” no posturing, no cowardice, no frills. Set for release in North America via Ironclad Recordings on July 23, 2013, The Road Will End was recorded with Chris Keene at Cutters Cathedral in Chico, California. All drums were tracked with Matt Pedri at Old Sailor Studios (also in Chico). Check out the official lyric video for The Starting Line Is A Trip Wire” at THIS LOCATION.
