California’s epic death metal monsters Winds of Plague are streaming their first track from “Against the World.” Their forthcoming fourth album is due April 19 on Century Media. “Refined in the Fire” is streaming here, on their facebook page.
The new album follows 2009’s concept album “The Great Stone War.” Singer Johnny Plague states, “The idea of The Great Stone War is that civilization as a whole will digress and in time inevitably end with one final battle. This battle will not be fought with technology but with stone. Over the course of eleven tracks the listener hears about a journey foreseen through the eyes of a heathen in a religious world apocalypse. Even in the world’s darkest times you always have to take a step back and see life for what it is and not lose sight of what is most important.”
Currently, Winds of Plague is out on a massive world tour with As I Lay Dying and After the Burial.
