UK thrashers SHRAPNEL have streamed their new single ‘Might Of Cygnus’, taken from their third full length album Palace For The Insane, due 15th May via Candlelight Records. 

Nathan Sadd (guitar) comments: “We’ve been so excited about sharing ‘Might Of Cygnus’ for a while now! It’s one of our favourite songs from the new record because it’s a blend of everything we do. It one of the best songs we’ve ever written, and is an absolute rager! It’s certainly not a prog song, but the title and lyrics are a tip of the hat to Rush and Neil Peart. We love A Farewell To Kings and Hemispheres, so we felt it would be cool to do a little tribute. We finally got to do a sci-fi themed thrash banger, which is something we’ve wanted to do for a while! For us, Cygnus is an explosive start to the new record and the new lineup. We can’t wait to get on the road and open the live show with it! Thrash, space, and Rush!”

Ferocious riffs and intense lead playing as these guys stick true to the thrash metal rule book for ‘Might of Cygnus’. It is as brutal as it is melodic. A trait I have always enjoyed from Shrapnel and if the intro doesn’t have your fist in the air and a stupid grin on your face then the epic guitar solo certainly will. An absolute rager indeed!
