Inter Arma 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.
