The band has also shared a new taster of it, in the form of Nova. And it’s a dark, discordant, devastating banger, all of the things you could ever want from OAO.
The band had this to say about what the track represents:
“In an overcrowded and oppressive modern society, it is all too easy to fall under pressure; collapse inwardly until self-destruct,” the band says. “‘Nova’ develops on the aggressive themes that were smashed into the metal world as of recent with ‘New Dawn.’ Doubling down on chaotic rhythms, overlapping dissonance and vocal hooks that will get your fist pumping in the air. Nova mirrors the inner human disparity, and has you banging your f***ing head to it.”
Here it is:
