Death/thrash outfit RAIDER, hailing from Waterloo, Canada will be releasing their album “Guardian of The Fire” on March 20th. The eight-track LP is a rush of E-standard mayhem, thrash overtones, and blackened vocals. Before it officially drops, the band is streaming the album in full via its premiere on NoCleansinging HERE.
With a writing process that flows collectively and organically, RAIDER cites that these eight tracks are thematically related and the first single, the title track of the recording, is the apex of the album’s theme regarding overcoming lies and hatred that stand between all of us and the truth.
The band explains:
“This album is about conquering everything that stands between you and the truth. It’s about not settling for the predetermined life that would have you playing puppet in someone else’s show. ‘Guardian of The Fire’ is an affirmation that we should forge our own way in this world – in spite of the overwhelming odds against us.”
In the veins of Sepultura, Annihilator, and Skeletonwitch, RAIDER is one of the underground death/thrash bands to keep an eye on in 2020.
Album pre-order is available on Bandcamp. Single streams available on Spotify.
