Canadian technical metal outfit Ion Dissonance have released a new track from their forthcoming fifth album, Cast the First Stone – their first full-length in six years. The new track is titled “Treading on Thin Ice” and features the return of the band’s venomous blend of brutal groove and mathcore chaos. Frontman Kevin McCaughey issued the following statement regarding the new album:
“First and foremost, we are excited that we inked a new record deal with Good Fight Music. For those who know us well it is certainly no secret that our band has encountered its fair share of obstacles through this 15-year journey, leading us to remain inactive for the better part of the last six years. With that being said, we look forward to a fresh start, and couldn’t ask for a better fit than the relationship established with the Good Fight family. The professionalism, dedication, support and hard work going into this record is so much moe positive than our previous experiences thus far.
On a side note, we are beyond stoked to finally share with our fans the songs we’ve been working on for some time now. For the occasion we reserved some of the hardest hitting grooves you’ve heard from us to date. With Antoine [Lussier, Ion Dissonance guitarist] at the helm of production once again, we made sure to include a little bit of everything on this one. Cast the First Stone is a solid mix of all the essential elements you would expect to hear from us, with some new twists added. This is the next chapter in the Ion Dissonance discography and we are far from finished.”
