After releasing critically acclaimed debut album "A Shadow of All Things Broken" in February this year, the Bergen old school thrashers will release a new single and video on August 27th. The song is called "American Carnage" and is a fast thrasher with lyrics about the chaos in the US the last years, leading up to the storming of the Capitol. Once again the band used the studio of Iver Sandøy (drummer for Enslaved), and he also play drums on the new song.
Relentless Aggression is a band that first started up as Hell Awaits in 1986, with Erik "Grim" Brødreskift (Immortal, Gorgoroth, Borknagar) handling the drums. They played the Bergen Thrash Festival in 1990, and then the band went into hiatus. In 2018 two of the original band members, Yngve and Finn, restarted the band, recorded three of the old songs together with seven new ones and released their debut album in 2021.
