Chicago-based Metal powerhouse TRIALS will release their third full-length, “This Ruined World” on July 24.

Following a pair of critically acclaimed independent releases – Witness to the Downfall (2011) and In the Shadow of Swords (2013), TRIALS has returned with their most evolved effort to date. Featuring nine tracks of intricately woven, relentless and forward-thinking metal, This Ruined World blends aggression and progression for devastating results. Diehard DIYers, TRIALS is a band determined to blaze its own path, free from label interference. This unwavering dedication to substance over style has never been more apparent than it is on This Ruined World.

This Ruined World contains some of the darkest, most complex music that we have made yet. We put a lot of blood and sweat into this project, and ended up with a record that represents us at our very best,” stated guitarist / vocalist Mark Sugar.

The album was recorded by Pete Grossmann at Bricktop Recording (Weekend Nachos, Hollow Earth) and mixed by Quentin Poynter at Gunpoint Recording (The Skull, Veil of Maya), with art work courtesy of Eva Bialecki (Jar’d Loose).

TRIALS will self-release This Ruined World on July 24, on CD and digital formats. Stream album track “Don’t Believe the Word” and the band’s cover of Strapping Young Lad’s “Far Beyond Metal” at trials.bandcamp.com or below:

Trials - In The Shadows Of Swords - promo cover pic

Chicago Modern Metal powerhouse TRIALS is set to make a triumphant return on May 1st with the release of their sophomore album, In the Shadow of Swords.

Coming off the heels of their 2011 debut, Witness to the Downfall, In the Shadow of Swords sees the band take their blend of forward-thinking Metal and muscular, Technical Thrash to the next level. Don’t mistake those words for the typical promotional hyperbole either. TRIALS has truly upped the ante where aggression, songwriting and sheer metallic power are concerned. Look no further than the album’s lead single, “Believers in Black,” for proof of the band’s progression. Stream the tune now:

In the Shadow of Swords is the first TRIALS recording to feature guitarist Ryan Bruchert (ex-HEWHOCORRUPTS), who joined the band last year. The album will be offered in digital and CD formats. The digital version includes a ripping cover of JUDAS PRIEST’s “Jawbreaker” as a bonus track, while the CD release will feature an additional TRIALS song, “Spirit Leaves” as a bonus. Recording took place at Wall 2 Wall Studios in Chicago and at TRIALS’ home studio with mixing and mastering courtesy of Lasse Lammert at LSD Studios in Lübeck, Germany. The album’s artwork was done by Chris Angelucci with Mark Sugar & Usha Rajbhandari.
