Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of Achilles, the new album by San Antonio-based rockers Silence The Messenger. It will be released October 15 through Standby Records. You can hear the entire album — and check out its cover art — below.
Heavily influenced by anything that's fast and heavy, Silence The Messenger's sound is derived from a mixture of old and new metal such as Slipknot, Behemoth, Whitechapel and anything in between.
"We're not here to reinvent the wheel," says frontman Steve Tinnon. "We're here to play p---ed-off, heavy music that we love for as many people as we can, and have a great f---ing time doing it."
Achilles was recorded at Studio D in Cleveland with Landon Tewers of The Plot In You.
