The Skinny: New York City metal band Ikillya have premiered their album Vae Victis. Vae Victis is Ikillya’s Megaforce Records Incorporated debut and is out TODAY! Vae Victis is Latin for “woe to the vanquished ones” and is the follow-up record to Ikillya’s highly praised debut album Recon. Stream the full record just below.

Vocalist Jason Lekberg says of the new album: “Vae Victis is equal parts battle cry, anthem and knot at the end of your rope. Light the fuse cause we’re rollin heavy with the artillery. We can’t wait for you to hear this album and grateful to those who helped us make it. Crank it up and we’ll see you on the road.”

On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
