Deathcore act Emmure's first single "Demons With Ryu" off their upcoming album "Speaker of the Dead" (out February 15 on Victory Records) was made available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon today. If this song is a sign of things to come, I am highly anticipating their new album.
After the release of Emmure's fourth album "Felony" (in my opinion the worst album of 2009) I had pretty much given up on this band. Highly impressed by their first three titles, it seemed that they had traveled down a hip-hop influenced path that there seeemed no dignified return from with their fourth effort. However, after hearing "Demons With Ryu" it seems Emmure does still have the ability to be a straight up brutal band returning to their more familiar sound.
I'll have my review of the full release of "Speaker of the Dead" when it is released on February 15.
