Set for release on May 11th, Hades Rising (pre-order a copy via Bandcamp here) is the sophomore studio full-length from Umeå, Sweden’s thrash metal group, Defiatory. Due out via Black Lion Records, the album follows 2016’s Extinct and sees the guys whipping out more of their massive, Bay Area-based thrash attack.

With some crisp production and slick musical chops, the album is being further introduced today via this premiere of the “In Hell” music video. Watch the clip above, then head below to see the new, Mika Rudin-painted cover art and full track listing. Fans of Exodus, Testament, Sepultura and Megadeth, turn it up!

Commenting on the single and video thereof, the guys noted: “‘In Hell’ takes the listener through the horrors of war and the helplessness and madness striking the soldiers fighting it. Are you fighting for the right side? Who is the enemy? Who are your friends? As the battle is over and the smoke clears, are you certain that your choices have been the right ones?”
