Tours, France metallic hardcore squad Beyond the Styx announces their 3rd album, Sentence, due out on 04 February 2022 via WTF Records on CD and vinyl and Diorama Records on cassette. The album will be distributed via Season Of Mist.
Earlier this month, BTSTYX shared the xenophobia condemning single, “New World Disorder,” featuring Luis Ifer from Madrid grindcore/d-beat act Teething as the guest vocalist; STREAM/DOWNLOAD the track RIGHT HERE.
With their upcoming record, Sentence, BTSTYX incarnates themselves as a musical chimera. Patently, this album is their most freaked-out and frenetic outing, with lyrics addressing topical affairs such as uninhibited and oppressive xenophobia, global warming, the society of control, police violence, and burnout. Some of the tracks also go a little more personal, concentrating on loneliness, isolation, social withdrawal, and self-loathing. Throughout the ten rip-roaring numbers, BTSTYX manifests an authentic, incisive desire to open minds to the evils that have been gnawing away for too long at this most decadent modern society.
The band informs:
“Beyond being the 3rd album of the band, this is a very special album since the global health context forced us to finalize it remotely, a first for us who are used to composing with all 5 members in a live rehearsal!”
BTSTYX will play a torrent of live shows to support the album. Details on the shows will be announced soon.
