Death Rattle Reveals New Track “Adrenalize” off Volition

New Hampshire-based groove-thrash band Death Rattle recently announced the upcoming release of their sophomore full-length album, Volition, out October 20, 2017. The album is available for pre-order now via Big Cartel, with more pre-order options are coming soon.

After charging out the gates with the release of their music video for “Love and War” last week, Death Rattle is following up with another blistering new track, “Adrenalize”. The band describes the track as, “a musical description of adrenaline pumping through your veins as a major battle approaches!”



Death Rattle performs thrash with a purpose – music that emphasizes groove and lethal riffage over speed and interchangeable guitar parts. It’s a sound bred from the attitude and angst of New England, a region that has faced economic and social strife and frustration time and again. Yet every time it lowers its head and pushes forward, obstacles be damned.

With more time to work on and fine-tune the songs on their second album, Death Rattle were able to approach each cut from various musical directions to see what worked best. The band recorded the final tracks appearing on Volition at Brick Hithouse studio in Cape Cod, MA with engineer Sean Fitzpatrick over the course of several months.

Volition track listing:

  1. Internal Determination
  2. Love and War
  3. Sentenced to Hell
  4. Snake in the Grass
  5. Adrenalize
  6. Sociopath
  7. Order Within Chaos
  8. Unfinished Business
  9. Doomsday
  10. From Blood to Black
