The Skinny: Chilean thrash metal act Nuclear announces the release of their 4th studio record called Apatrida available through Sick Bangers Metal Label and Distro beginning July 25, 2012. The album was produced by Sebastian Puente and Francisco Haussmann and registered in its entirely at Audio Custom Studios, Santiago – Chile.

“We had this idea to pull out an EP which we think has more flexibility in terms of composition and sound. It is a very aggressive material and lyric-wise it has a strong political content. We know for sure it will appeal to those who like our music” said the band’s guitarist. Furthermore, the album includes a version of Scottish punk act The Exploited with the song ‘Chaos is my Life’ and also, Nuclear’s first song sung in Spanish “Apatrida”.

For the artwork the band worked again with graphic designer Claudio Botarro (Jehovirus, 2010) who was in charge to translate the band’s idea of a controversial and direct message about current Chilean political status. “The tried to bring a powerful concept using iconic figures of Chilean political history. The same old factions fighting over who has the power and money, as true vultures. For those who have no intention of make things right, this is our message. The band has always been straightforward and frontal in their albums and we didn’t make an exception this time” said the band.

Apatrida Track Listing:

02. Breathing Despair
03. Architects of War
04. Chaos is my Life (The Exploited Cover)
