On January 19th internationally, Dying Victims Productions will release a new 7” EP from Heavy Sentence titled Warriors of Madness. And now, the New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal (NWOTHM) YouTube channel streams the EP in its entirety: Heavy Sentence – Warriors Of Madness [EP] (2024) – YouTube

It’s been nearly three years from their celebrated Bang to Rights debut album, but Heavy Sentence are back with Dying Victims for a quick-hitting and heavily satisfying 7” titled Warriors of Madness. Featuring three brand-new & exclusive tracks, Warriors of Madness maintains all the charm of that first full-length – deceptively energetic mid-tempo HEAVY METAL roughened up by the spectre of punk, much like those early days of the NWOBHM – but switches gears slightly by “slicking up” that street-level throb with a production style that’s thick and clean and yet somehow dirtier than the already exquisitely dirty Bang to Rights. As expected, either way, Heavy Sentence keep proceedings as anthemic as ever, with the first two tracks storming & strutting like early ‘80s Motörhead. But the price of admission is more than worth it for the B-side, “Give Yourself to the Night”: a moody “epic” at five minutes, it stalks like a midnight vampire, beckoning and commanding in equal measure. Join these Warriors of Madness post-haste!
