Ara Premiere New Song “Cytokine Storm” From Upcoming New Album “Judisprudence”

Wisconsin based, death metal outfit Ara have signed with Lavadome productions for the release of it’s sophomore album “Judisprudence”. The album was recorded at Howl Street Studios and mastered by Leon Macey of death metal powerhouse Mithras. “Jurisprudence” will be released early next year. In the meantime, you can already stream the third track of the album “Cytokine Storm” streaming below:

The band’s guitarist, Jerry Haupa, issued following statement with regards to the revealed track:

“Cytokine Storm represents the most focused attack of the band on the record thematically, while still challenging the listener and the boundaries of the death metal approach in general. The lyrical theme is about how the body self-destructs during the final stages of infection from Ebola, so the music takes on a viral approach as though the listener is bombarded with inhibiting structures, eventually succumbing to fatal illness while paralyzed by confusion and despair.”
