Nuclear Oath Streams “Toxic Playground” Title Track

Nuclear Oath is a five-member groovy, heavy, sludgy, intense, and interactive metal wrecking crew from Medicine Hat, Alberta that will release new album “Toxic Playground” on June 9th, 2017.

“We feel it is an aggressive album from start-to-finish, which generates different emotions as the album progresses,” comments Nuclear Oath. Today the band has also unveiled the title track to the album, which can be heard below. Bassist Nathanael Bohnet comments:

“This is the title track off the album and also the last song we wrote for the album. We wanted to aim to make the track as hard hitting as possible with it still maintaining a strong structure. Overall, we feel this song properly captures the feel of the entire album, musically and lyrically.”
