The track is off the band’s forthcoming self-titled album, which is set for release on February 5th via Century Media Records.

“When your new album is written and recorded during a global pandemic, you might expect some side effects on it. “Indoctrinate” is the opening track of ‘Angelus Apatrida’ and it’s probably the angriest song we ever composed! It reflects a mix of all feelings experienced throughout this past year and also how people were being radicalized via stupid extremist populism within society...

by Randy “Rocket” Cody

In his own memoir, Scott revealed to NY Daily News in 2011 his first experience with heroin that happened during a U.S. tour in the ’90s, after upon arriving in Manhattan, “a few of the musicians had put in their orders for bags of China White.”

TREYHARSH – Sign With Wormholedeath

Hailing from France, thrash death metal combo TREYHARSH are happy to announce that they have signed a deal with Wormholedeath for the release of their new studio album “ETERNAL CYCLES”.

“Pity is the most pleasant feeling among those who are little proud and have no-hope of a great conquest” (Nietzsche), the main lines which characterize our philosophy.

We are four guys, from around Lille in the north of France, who came together to form TREYHARSH in 2011. The heavy, brutal and cold atmospheres strongly inspired us to create our own universe, from our compositions to our image, without getting too inked in a category of style. Out of this mix of inspirations will be born trash and death metal compositions...
