Phoenix, AZ's MOTIVE will be unleashing their latest album, "Fight The World", on vinyl, July 12, 2019, via Metal Devastation Records. Released digitally and on CD December 1, 2018, the album is fast, aggressive, and a chunky blend of thrash that has been well met by legions of metalheads around the world. Featuring a solid collection of 10 tracks, the album's goal is to make you thrash, mosh and for the tunes to be stuck in your head with no escape.
The band adds:
“Fight The World” is loaded with riffs, hooks, guitar solos, heavy ass bass, tight acoustic drums, and some strong vocals. We hope fans can’t turn it off, and we hope the energy of the songs is addictive!”
Loaded with modern tones, MOTIVE takes the thrash and groove base, and blends a touch of death metal and heavy rock elements into the fray. This can be experienced with their latest lyric video for the track “Thrash Priest”, that was released last year. MOTIVE details the track:
“Thrashing riffs, double bass kicks, slammin’ groove, then some thrashy punk rock, and a rippin’ solo. It’s a great opening track, with a strong chorus. The premise is enough of the Catholic Church with their lies and cover-ups. The 'Thrash Priest' is better for you and your family any day.” Watch the video for ‘Thrash Priest’:
Not stopping with the momentum, MOTIVE starts their “Summer Fight” Tour on June 1, 2019 and will play 16 dates across the Southwest and Midwest. It’s a must see for everyone who enjoys moshing and thrashing, especially those who are fans of Carcass, Pantera, Metallica, Lamb of God, and Slayer.
