New York metal mammoths, Ikillya, released their latest album, Vae Victis, on April 29th, 2014. Loaded to the tits with 9 purely pummeling songs, the Megaforce Records released recording has garnered glowing reviews from many of metal’s top websites. As Ikillya only continue to grow stronger as a music unit, and as they reach droves of new fans, it’s only natural that they continue to spread their sound. In an effort to help, we’ve teamed up with the group to offer a free download of their song “Vae Victis”. Grab it now!

Additionally, Ikillya are set to North American, beginning today, with American thrash metal band Battlecross and Canada’s Wacken Battle winners, Crimson Shadows. The tour will be short and sweet, but totally tear up the towns it hits. See below for a list of tour dates.
