Inter Arma Return Shares a New Single and New Album Title Track “New Heaven”

New Heaven, Inter Arma’s anticipated new album, is a compelling testament to perseverance, top to bottom. The album releases April 26th, 2024 via their long-time label Relapse Records. Its thicket of ever-dense layers of doom, death, and black metal occasionally let bits of light slip in, fleeting reminders to keep going amid the tumult. The record marks a sharp turn for Inter Arma, showcasing some of the most extreme and angular songwriting the band has ever laid bare. Known for their cinematic take on sludgy, extremely cavernous, and borderline psychedelic Metal, the Richmond band broadens their dynamics by seesawing between piledriving momentum and swirling oblivion. New Heaven crushes and conquers, and illustrates what Inter Arma can truly be. Stream “New Heaven” now and pre-order the album now.Continue reading
