Horrendous walk the tightrope of wearing their influences proudly and carving their own path on The Chills, the band's debut full-length out today via Dark Descent.

Horrendous's well-received Sweet Blasphemies demo in 2010 showed the East Coast trio channelling/reimagining the early waves of death metal on both this continent and the EU, bringing to mind a marriage of the Swedish death invasion with American pioneers like the great Autopsy or early Death. If this record was released a few weeks sooner, I'm guessing it would be on the tip of DM-fans' tongues as a favorite of 2011, so keep a look out for 2012. It rips.

Stream The Chills in its entirety below, and order a copy on CD via Dark Descent now and on vinyl this spring. So far no tour dates to speak of, but we'll keep a look out.

BBG is the farthest thing from HORRENDOUS! (seewhatIdidthere?)

@ 2:03 No need for him to "chime in" and give any type of recognition to all the closeted homophobic hipsters that are posting in these threads. Just ignore.

This is great. Obviously not aping Swedish sounds but incorporating some of the best parts while still retaining different influences and adding a touch of their own. Well-crafted songs...this is a catchy and well-done album.

Boring, as with all of those shitty retro bands on Dark Descent.

Lol. So much hate here, this was very good and far from being generic. Also, Dark Descent has been re-releasing great old school albums and hooking up with great newer bands, sure not all the bands are great but you can't say that they all suck. A bunch of you new age metalheads hate on every little thing and do not support the metal scene whatsoever, yet you all bitch and whine about how the metal scene is shit nowadays. Fuck off, you are part of the problem.

This is a very good album, I heara lot of different influences which is a very good thing. Too many bands nowadays just rip off their main influence and sound extremely generic, this on the other hand has a bunch of different things going on. I will definitely pick up this album and show some support for you guys \m/

Great band, great record. Will order this with my Timeghoul demo comp. DDR is really one of the few labels that releases worthy material.

Maybe the problem with the metal scene is that there is too many identical bands. How many indie metal bands in Brooklyn are doing really similar things in music they are influenced by? Quite a few.

This is awesome. Love the Scream Bloody Gore parts.
