They’re back!! It’s been six years since their last release but now progressive metallers Threat Signal are ready with a long awaited new album Disconnect being released via Agonia Records.
If you haven’t heard of Threat Signal before get some in your life now. I was first introduced to them via a Metal Hammer CD that had the song Disciple from their self titled 2011 album and have been hooked ever since. Their mind blowing style of groove induced metal mixed, with lightening lead playing to make any guitarist weak at the knees with envy, and unique vocal approach that make Threat Signal a force to be reckoned with. After being quiet for many years with multiple line up changes and set backs they now have a new album to share with us and boy are we excited here at Invicta HQ so let’s crack on.
The guys in Threat Signal have already released a single called Exit The Matrix with accompanying lyric video which you can check out on YouTube. This is one of the strongest songs on the album and definitely getting jammed non stop, hitting hard with a great intro that breaks into head banging goodness that we know oh so well from Threat Signal, the chorus is epic with a seriously catchy melody and a beautiful solo to top it off.
The album kicks off with Elimination Process which is your good old Threat Signal and has more bounce than Kim Kardashian’s ass. The grooves hit you hard with this one and mixed with the insane guitar skills that will leave your jaw dropping at every lick.
Threat Signal are a perfect example of technical excellence and prowess that are guaranteed to turn heads for metal enthusiasts. Songs such as Nostalgia and Aura will leave you wanting more and truly show the new heights that this band have taken their music to. Guitarists Travis Montgomery and Matt Perrin have out done themselves with this release with their bone crunching riffs, melodies and disgustingly amazing solos.
Vocalist Jon Howard brings his own unique style and delivery that makes Threat Signal it’s own and shines throughout the new album. There’s a blend of gritty vocals and clean singing that brings a steady balance to the whole album with melodic moments that are well placed between incredibly heavy parts. With their Dream Theater influence they have taken a slightly different approach to this album than previous ones but if anything this only made them better showing a more experimental and creative side to the band and stepping up their game.
Our favourite tracks are Exit The Matrix and the ten minute mind bending song Terminal Madness although the whole album is a great listen with every track bringing a different dynamic to a rounded and well thought out album.
We highly recommend checking out the new album Disconnect which will be released 10th November.
