Metal Assault Records is excited to make the first reveal from its upcoming compilation release, Metal Assault Mixtape: Vol. 1.
“Amok”, the track by LA instrumental power trio Zinngeschrei, was premiered earlier this week via popular rock/metal portal, Blabbermouth.net, and can be streamed using the Bandcamp player below.
Metal Assault Mixtape Vol. 1 is releasing on August 9 on cassette tape (limited to 100 copies only) and digital download. Pre-orders of the cassette tape are live via our web store. All orders of the cassette will receive a free digital download of the entire compilation.
With this first song reveal, pre-orders of the standalone digital download of the compilation are now also live via the Metal Assault Bandcamp, wherein anyone who purchases a digital pre-order gets an immediate download of the Zinngeschrei track. And of course, you can also make an individual purchase of the Zinngeschrei track by itself. Without further ado, listen to “Amok”:
Los Angeles instrumental power trio ZINNGESCHREI brings together three talented musicians from three different parts of the world (Australia, Europe and America), and their eclectic, dynamic brand of musical creativity is very much a reflection of this fact. Inspired by and reminiscent of classic prog but simultaneously brandishing modern elements, Zinngeschrei has the power to enhance the quality of any multi-artist lineup or project they participate in, whether it be a live gig, or a mixtape like this one. Zinngeschrei lets their musical expression run wild with their compelling new single, “Amok”.
