Italian thrash metal heroes Game Over are going to release the new album “Claiming Supremacy” on November 17th via Scarlet Records.
Following the widely successful “Crimes Against Reality” and the “Blessed Are The Heretics” EP, which confirmed the band as one of the most promising metal acts in Europe and among the NWoTM best, “Claiming Supremacy” is without any doubt the band’s most mature album so far.
Inspired by the classic Bay Area thrash metal scene of the 80’s, Game Over mixes those influences with modern sounds and a very distinctive personality. “Claiming Supremacy” is the perfect combination of the band’s furious riffing, hardcore attitude and classic metal influences, with very obscure lyrics and, of course, those anthemic choruses that fans recognize as a band trademark.
Overall the album is heavier, faster and ruthless than ever. Lyrics vary from B-movie scenarios to social-political themes, science fiction, mythology and history. The album has been mixed and mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust), who has previously worked with Midnight, SunnO))), Poison Idea, Integrityand many more. “Claiming Supremacy,” which will be released in Japan by Marquee, will also be available in a vinyl version limited to 500 copies.
