Massachusetts thrash metallers Lich King have announced THE OMNICLASM U.S. Tour for September and October 2017. The tour will be their first full U.S. run in over four years and is their second tour in support of their April 2017 release THE OMNICLASM, following their headlining European run in April and May.
THE OMNICLASM features 10 tracks of aggressive, stompy thrash metal in the old tradition, and is the band's fifth full-length album and a continuation of their DIY nature with an independent release. As with 2012's BORN OF THE BOMB and 2014's DO-OVER, the new album was produced and mixed by drummer Brian Westbrook (Barishi, Condition Critical) at Sonic Titan Studios, and album art and design were handled by vocalist Tom Martin.
«THE OMNICLASM [...] absolutely tears from start to finish with high energy that whips back and forth, always maintaining a level of fun.» — Metal Injection, 9.5/10
«Riding a punky thrash wave born of Exodus and Vio-lence, the LICH KING juggernaut seems impossible to stop once it starts rolling.» — Angry Metal Guy, 4/5
«LICH KING have been defying public opinion, lampooning the self-righteous, and generally snapping necks with their furious brand of thrash metal.» — Metal Observer, 8.5/10
