SURGEON Open the Gates of Avant-Garde Black Metal Shred-Hell

Philadelphian black metallers Surgeon are prepping the release of their third album, Beast of Light, mixed and mastered by our pal Kevin Antreassian (Dillinger Escape Plan) over in the frostbitten plains of Rockaway, New Jersey, at Backroom Studios. We don’t cover nearly enough of this genre of metal on this site, but I think you’re gonna really dig this band. They’re playing with a dangerous brew of influences, spanning prog, classic metal, and Mastodon/Neurosis/Intronaut style melodic-throaty vocals.

Beast of Light drops August 30th via Anthropic Records. Check out an exclusive guitar playthrough of “War is Love” by Lydia Giordano and Josh Mustin below!

Catch the band on a US jaunt with Master later this summer!
