The Italian purveyors of thrash metal, Omicida, are streaming a new single entitled “State of Terror” on SoundCloud – listen above! Due out on June 15th, “State of Terror” marks Giovanni Barbieri’s debut on vocals. The music and lyrics were written last year just a few weeks before the attacks that took place in Paris last November.

“State of Terror” is a direct attack to any form of religious extremism that leads to such violence and human cruelty. The track has been released only digitally on iTunes and any other digital media.
