The Skinny: Montreal, QC based metal band Dissension is proud to announce the upcoming release of their debut album Of Time And Chronic Disease digitally worldwide on September 10th through Believe Digital along with it being sold physically on vinyl. Dissension is now streaming their first single off the debut “Of Time And Chronic Disease” just above via the SoundCloud player.

Sharing the stage with international heavyweights like Tyr, Threat Signal, and Cryptopsy plus performing in front of their hometown crowd at Heavy MTL 2011 along with recently being finalists at Wacken Metal Battle Canada, Dissension’s eclectic mix of thrash, black and power metal attacks the darker side of human nature, reaching epic heights and somber depths. Their debut’s ten brutal assaulting tracks were produced by Kevin Jardine of Uplift Productions, (Slaves on Dope, What Comes To Life, One) and mastered by Ryan Morey (Arcade Fire, Priestess, Half Moon Run).

Vocalist and guitarist Nathan Afilalo comments: “Having been a band for about six years, we have long anticipated the great day where we could let our music take flight upon the winds of the world. With that in mind, Of Time And Chronic Disease is a summation of our music since it contains some of our very earliest songs to some of our latest. The album has to be taken as a whole, as the individual songs all represent a different facet of the whole that is our music. It’s like a hydra, the beast can only truly be slain if you remove all of its heads and immerse yourself in the dark pools of its blood.”
