New Releases From Metal Blade Records Artists Harlott, Accusser and Lizzy Borden

Australia's premier thrash metal band, Harlott recently released their fourth full-length album titled "Detritus Of The Final Age." It features ten heart-racing tracks that keep the spirit of thrash metal music alive and well. The album kicks off with "As We Breach," an onslaught of power and energy that bowls you over with shear force and speed. Harlott get more intense with the short, chaotic piece "Idol Minded," while "Bring On The War" showcases more depth to their songwriting, add layers to their heavy metal sound. They keep on delivering that iconic thrash metal sound on the quick-hitting "Prime Evil," before taking a step back to deliver the nearly eight-minute epic metal masterpiece "Nemesis." Harlott close out their new album with the hard-hitting, aggressive delivery of "Slaughter," along with the doom metal feel of "Grief" and the final high-speed, sonic blast of "The Time To Kill Is Now."

Germany's thrash metal pioneers Accusser have releases their twelfth studio album back in November. This new eleven-track, self-titled album wastes no time getting down to business with the high-energy attack of the opening track "Misled Obedience" and the equally intense and aggressive "Phantom Graves." Accusser add more depth to their trash metal sound on "Temple Of All," which is more that just a hard-hitting, speedy run-through. One of the more mainstream metal tracks on this new album is "Be None The Wiser." The chugging guitar riffs and growling vocals come together perfectly to create an addictive metal anthem for new fans to cling onto. The high-speed energy returns with "Rethink," before Accusser deliver an epic progressive/thrash metal masterpiece with "Psychocision." They wrap up their new album with the aggression of "The Eliminator" and the bashing rhythm of "A Cycle's End." To find out more about Accusser and their new self-titled album, please visit

Last, but not least, we have the newly released "Best of Lizzy Borden, Vol. 2." The album continues where volume 1 left off in 1994 and includes songs all the way up to their 2018 release "My Midnight Things," which kicks off their new fourteen track release. The songs on this compilation have been digitally remastered by Tom Baker (David Bowie, Tom Petty, Marilyn Manson) and is only available in digital form. Lizzy Borden's classic sound is heard on the tracks "Tomorrow Never Comes" and "There Will Be Blood Tonight," along with their cover of Blue Oyster Cult's "(This Ain't) The Summer Of Love," which originally appeared on the "Deal With The Devil" album. This new compilation also includes two new cover songs that were newly recorded with the band's currently line-up. Lizzy Borden perform a perfect, spot-on, energetic version of the Ramones' "Pet Sematary" and show their love and appreciation for Blue Oyster Cult once again with their version of the classic "Burnin' For You."
