Danish Thrashers, Essence, have confirmed that their forthcoming full-length album is titled “Prime”, and is set for release on October 2nd, 2015 via Spinefarm Records.
Narrowing the gap between the poppy energy of The Offspring and the youthful vehemence of early Metallica and Slayer, Essence‘s third album is a Prime example of how a riveting combo of melodic and catchy, yet wildly thrashing metal is done, complete with a fully analogue production.
You can check a preview static video with short clips from 6 of the album tracks here:
