Progressive death metal outfit Contrarian – which unites drummer George Kollias (Nile), guitarists Brian Mason (Sulaco) and Leon Macey (Mithras), vocalist Cody McConnell (Goemagot), and Delirium Endeavor guitarist Jim Tasikas and bassist Ed Paulsen – have announced the release of their debut full-length record. The new effort will be titled Polemic and will be unleashed on November 20 via Willowtip Records. The eight-track offering was captured at Watchmen Studios (USA), Dreaming Studios (UK) and Soundtrap Studios (Greece) with all mixing and mastering done by Macey at Dreaming Studios. The album contains awe-inspiring displays of virtuosic musicianship that blend blistering death metal with progressive, science fiction overtones.
The album’s artwork and track listing can be found after the break along with a stream of the title track (via No Clean Singing).
