Vinyl will be released on October 14th 2022.
BLEED FROM WITHIN is proud to release their stunning new studio album, Shrine. The most fiercely anticipated record of their career, Shrine marks their most groundbreaking work to date. Staking their bold intent, the Scottish 5-piece claims their position as the most exciting prospect in modern metal.
In celebration, the band have revealed their fifth album single – a knockout blow titled ‘Temple of Lunacy‘, alongside a visualizer video, created by Craig Gowans – 12 Inch Media.
Ali Richardson quoted:
“Temple Of Lunacy was just the perfect track to be dropping on release day. It has all the ingredients that people would expect of a BLEED FROM WITHIN song, but we ramped up all that groove, aggression and melody to another level. A great showcase of the production value also with the symphonic elements carrying the main riff. It’s a relief to have this album out in the open now for everyone to enjoy. You’d better believe that we’re just getting started.”
Shrine‘ was recorded at Real World Studios and at Bleed From Within‘s HQ, UK. The record was self-produced. Mixing was handled by Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood and Sebastian Sendon, with engineering handled by Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood and Bleed From Within. The ‘Shrine‘ artwork was created by David Provan, with layout by Simon Atkinson.
BLEED FROM WITHIN have been to hell and back, but they are no strangers to enduring hardship. When a global pandemic threatened to shut down their plans, the Glaswegians collectively raised five middle fingers and pressed on. It’s no surprise that this unstoppable riff machine continues to crush forward at such a frantic pace – there’s no putting the breaks on the heaviest band to ever emerge from Scotland.
The band’s reputation as one of the most formidable forces in modern metal has earned them tour slots with Megadeth, Lamb Of God, Testament, and Heaven Shall Burn, to name just a few. 2021 saw them dominate the UK live scene; selling out their largest ever headline tour in November, capturing hearts on Bullet For My Valentine’s arena tour, slay a Lamb Of God Livestream support slot, alongside (literally) blazing performances at Download Festival and Bloodstock Festival.
Shrine has taken the most graft to put together of any record in their catalogue, challenging their self-perception on both personal and technical levels – the culmination of two years of hard work that embodies their artistic might. Armed with the learnings of evolving their sound over the last decade without ever losing sight of their DIY roots, this is BLEED FROM WITHIN at their very best. There’s no denying the band’s inevitable next steps are world domination, with Shrine a turning point moment.
