Brazil's SPEEDKILLER set release date for EDGED CIRCLE debut, reveal first track

Today,   Edged Circle Productions  announces December 11th as the international release date for  the striking debut album of Brazil's   Speedkiller Midnight Vampire .

An otherwise entity,   Speedkiller  hail from Brazil, arguably THE South American country with the richest history of extreme metal. A quartet, the band comprises vocalist/guitarist Spellcaster, fellow guitarist Summoned, bassist Evilspirit, and drummer Hellcrätus. A full-length album,   Midnight Vampire   is  Speedkiller 's first public recording...but HOLY FUCK is it a first statement!

Unapologetically,   Speedkiller  hail the old gods of their homeland, both the massively influential cult scene of the '80s - Vulcano, Sarcofago, Mutilator, Holocausto, and earliest (and best) Sepultura - but also Mystifier's classic first album,  Wicca . As such,  Midnight Vampire  is a work of both aggression  and  atmosphere. But unlike so many past and especially present who endlessly try to replicate the OTT violence of Sarcofago's  INRI ,   Speedkiller  possess a patience in their songwriting which allows bewitching atmosphere to play equal footing as belligerent aggression -  the song  to take precedence over style. In fact, much of  Midnight Vampire  charges forward at a brisk, enjoyably headbanging tempo, allowing their largely traditionalist constructions to breathe full, foul breaths: undeniably sulfurous, but firmly rooted in ancient values. Thus, here could one raise a gleaming sword as freely as drink black blood, and indeed do   Speedkiller 's primary inspirations run the gamut of street fights, vampirism, all-caps HEAVY METAL, perversion, and of course DEATH.

Hearty and hale,  Midnight Vampire  doesn't waste any time, either: it gets in and gets out in a swift yet deeply satisfying 27 minutes. Suitably, the rich 'n' resoundingly analog production is completed by mixing from now-labelmates   Inculter 's Remi Nygård, and cover art by Jean Nightbreäker of Brazil's Murdeath is everything it should be for a work like this. If you want ARGH, you got it with   Speedkiller !
