Vio-lence premiere first new song in 29 years, to release 'Let The World Burn' EP

San Francisco Bay Area thrash metal unit Vio-lence have announced plans to release a new EP in March. The new record, the group's first original set since 1993, is titled Let The World Burn and will arrive on March through Metal Blade Records.

Its lead single, "Flesh From Bone," can be streamed here:

"This is the first Vio-lence song I had written in close to 30 years," says founding guitarist Phil Demmel. "I wanted to keep some of those early Eternal Nightmare qualities intact but infuse a lot of what I've culled into my songwriting arsenal over the decades. 'Flesh From Bone' has the frenetic picking/fingering riffs and the solo trade-offs that are pretty old-school, and I'm also wearing my influences on my sleeve with a few Exodus and Slayer-inspired riffs."

Let The World Burn was recorded with Juan Urteaga (Testament, Cattle Decapitation), mixed by Tue Madsen (Meshuggah, Sick Of It All), and engineered by Ted Jensen (Billy Joel, Pantera).
