Led by guitarist / vocalist Fabian “Fabs” Schwarz, German thrash machine Runamok have broken 13 years of silence with a new single, “Creeping Beauty”, the first taste of a brand new slab of shred and violence due to be released in 2023, entitled The Clown Brigade.
Inspired by metal icons Annihilator, Megadeth and Testament, Runamok unleashed five albums between 2004 and 2009. With a little free time between projects, Fabs decided to pick up where Electric Shock ended in 2009, resulting in a record that shreds mercilessly from top to bottom and has more hooks than a fishing boat, remaining catchy and melodic. Simply put, from “Creeping Beauty” to the crushing “D.I.L.L.I G.A.F”, from the shred n’ roll of “The Hex” and “Nailgun Romance” to the high-speed bitchslap takedown of “Damn Your God”, “Leech” and “In Regret”, The Clown Parade at its core is good, loud, mean and unrelenting fun.
The way metal is supposed to be.
The Clown Brigade will be available for download on November 25th.
