Dallas quintet Kaliya have premiered a new track from their forthcoming EP, MMXVI, over at Bloody Disgusting. Titled “Blank Stare”, the rambunctious new tune churns out pummeling rhythms and buzzsaw guitar riffs, weaving together the classic Swedish death metal sound with metallic hardcore grit. Guitarist Ben Cooper issued the following comments regarding the forthcoming release:
“These four songs are what we feel represents the next step in the new direction of Kaliya that began with our last (self titled) full length. We really wanted to cut out any possible elements of filler and go straight to the core of what we are doing. There is a variety of parts / songs on the EP but to us they are all Kaliya. Our guitar player Thomas Booe was the audio engineer on the album and the mixing and mastering process was handled by William Blackmon of Gadget.”
Stream the track after the break.
MMXVI will be released on September 2 via Burning Dogma Records.
