Germano-Ukrainian thrash metal maniacs, Pripjat, are set to unleash their second album Chain Reaction on April 27th, 2018 via NoiseArt Records. The album will be available as CD-Digipak and double LP on black vinyl in a gatefold sleeve.
Ahead of the album’s release, the band has put out a lyric video for the second single, entitled Kiev Burns! Check it out below!
The band states:”This one is personal. To see Kiev, the beautiful place of our (Kirill -guitars/vocals and Eugen – guitars) childhood, being burned, raped and drenched in blood of the innocents was one of the heaviest things we have had to take so far. Without being patriots of any flag, we still are shocked by the events that brought the country to the darkest place it ever has been since the fall of the Soviet Union. And we take one only side in this one – the side of the people. All governments involved – the Ukrainian, the Russian, the European Union, the USA – you are all to blame! Another empty promise. Another pointless conflict. Another war pitting brother against brother. Another dead-end constitution. We had to raise our voice, because the silence was becaming deafening.”
Chain Reaction tracklist:
Just a Head
Take The Law
Bowed, Yet Unbroken
Brick By Brick
Survival Of The Sickest
Three years have passed since Pripjat released their debut full length Sons of Tschernobyl. The record came out of nothing, delighting thrash-fans and the press all over the world. Songs like Born To Hate, Toxic or Acid Rain became must-plays on the many shows the band have played since the release, convincing unbelievers fan by fan, riff by riff. After over a year of recording Pripjat have finished their second Album.
