Belarus’s VERWÜSTUNG set release date for new HANDFUL OF HATE album, reveal first track

Handful of Hate sets May 1st as the international release date for the highly anticipated second album of Belarus’s VerwüstungGospel ov Fury, on A5 digibook CD format.

Ever aptly titled, Gospel ov Fury is a fucking firestorm of blackthrashing metal. Locked in and lasciviously devoted to their iron-fisted attack, Verwüstung unload an arsenal of meanness that dutifully remains committed to the first wave of ’80s black metal as well as the underground’s most violent thrash bands of the day. And yet, Gospel ov Fury is no mere replication of “retro” sounds; the quartet are deftly skilled at moving from hypnotic, ice-cold blasting to swaggering rock ‘n’ roll stylings, always keeping the emphasis on DANGER – and, of course, actual songwriting. In fact, just a cursory read of most of the album’s song titles should say more than enough where Verwüstung are drawing inspiration (and madness): “Hellfire Rock’n’Roll,” “The Ultimate Leveller,” “Impulse to Kill,” “The Purge,” and naturally “Madness Closing In.”

Graced with mysterious, nearly 3D artwork fully fitting of its A5 digibook format, Gospel ov Fury is indeed worth preaching. Behold the illuminating arrival of Verwüstung! First illumination can be found with the new track “Dissolution” HERE at Handful of Hate‘s Bandcamp, where the album can also be preordered. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
