As prog metal outfit Threat Signal prepare to unleash Disconnect on the 10th of November, they’ve been busy releasing playthroughs and singles all over the shop. The newest of these is a drum playthrough of “Elimination Process” from the new album. Debuted earlier in the week via Sick Drummer Magazine, sticksman Andrew Minarik’s video can be found below.
From the album, the Canadian quartet have already released three singles in “Exit The Matrix”, “Aura” and “Elimination Process” in addition to a whole band playthrough of “Exit The Matrix”, all of which can be found on the band’s YouTube page.
On their fourth studio record, band founder and vocalist Jon Howard voiced this:
Well, we made it to album number 4! To say its been a tough ride would be an understatement, but as the shit piles on, we’ll keep shovelling that shit off!
We began writing this album back in 2012, and continued writing over the next three years until we were able to hit the studio again. Basically our thought process while writing was to not have an end goal of what the album should sound like. We didn’t plan to make a really heavy album, or a melodic album, or take anyone else’s input on what we should sound like. We basically just wrote songs with a clear and open mindset until Disconnect grew together.
This album ranges from melodic metal, to hard rock, to thrash metal, and even down to a chill acoustic tune, its a roller coaster of a ride while staying true to the Threat Signal sound. You will feel the energy from all of our previous albums plus something new.
A big thanks to Agonia records for believing in us and finally getting this album released. Also a huge thanks to the fans for sticking with us over the years. I’d like to dedicate our album Disconnect to my fallen friend and former Threat Signal drummer Norm Killeen. May you be jamming with the best of them in the next life!!! Peace and love.
Disconnect was recorded and produced by vocalist Jon Howard and lead guitarist Travis Montgomery while mixing and mastering was handled by Mark Lewis (DevilDriver, Whitechapel, Battlecross, Coal Chamber). Lastly but certainly not leastly in this case, the artwork for the album was created by Ludovic Cordelieres of Rusalkadesign (Kamelot).
