Earlier this year, Infiltraitor were part of the massive New Dead Metal Fest line-up playing alongside some of their favourite Australian acts. “It’s huge this year”, said vocalist, Kyle Bloksgaard, at the time. “New Dead gives us a chance to play with some bands we probably wouldn’t otherwise, it means we get to see great bands like The Amenta, and Ne Obliviscaris, and we get to play with legends Truth Corroded [Truth Corroded unfortunately had to pull out]. It’s huge and we’re really excited to be on that show.”
New Dead Metal Fest was a great success, and for many punters it was their first time seeing Infiltraitor live. “We’re an energetic live band,” Bloksgaard says. “We try and make our shows fun.” In exciting news for melodic metal lovers, the band will be brining that energy to the stage when they support Sweden’s Soilwork in October, something Bloksgaard and the rest of the band are looking forward to. “We’re obviously influenced a lot by Soilwork, so it’s incredible having the chance to support them on their Adelaide show. They’ve been a huge inspiration for us as a band, that’s going to be a huge show, we can’t wait.”
In the meantime, Infiltraitor will be launching their album ‘Severance’ with a show at Enigma Bar on August 10th, featuring Arcadia, Closed Casket, Alkira, and Strength of a Bear.
‘Severance’ will be released through Truth Inc Records on August 2nd. The album has been mixed and mastered by the renowned king of melodic death metal Fredrik Nordstrom who has worked with bands such as IN FLAMES, SOILWORK and DIMMU BORGIR.
To introduce a taste of whats to come INFILTRAITOR have unleashed a lyric video for the title song ‘SEVERANCE’
