Richmond, VA-based black sludge metal unit Intre Arma has declared plans to release their fifth studio full length. New Heaven marks a sharp turn for the band, showcasing some of the most extreme and angular songwriting the band has ever laid bare. New Heaven will see a April 26th release through Relapse Records.

Today, the group shared the title track from the upcoming effort and stems from drummer/songwriter TJ Childers' challenge to himself to write a nonsensically dissonany part that he ended up loving.




Speaking on the new album, Childers shared the following:

New Heaven is the culmination of four years worth of adversity ranging from near death experiences, multiple member changes and of course a global pandemic. It marks a new chapter for us musically as we feel we've taken our songwriting to places we've never explored before. We're excited to have come out of the madness relatively unscathed and feel as though we've created something completely unique that will stand apart in the sometimes homogenous extreme music community.  

Guitarist Trey Dalton adds: 

This record, maybe more than our previous efforts, more fully represents what we're trying to accomplish. It's still very much us - you know, music made by dudes coming from disparate musical backgrounds and perspectives, but with a more collective and defined sense of purpose. Clarity in direction, maybe. Your mileage may vary, but we like it a lot, and we hope you do too.
