The truth is what you get with Quebec City’s hardcore scene trailblazers Get The Shot – straight forward, no sugar coating. As brutal and cruel as reality can be, the ability to confront and overcome it depends on our ability to face it head-on. Forthcoming new album, Merciless Destruction, drops October 7th via New Damage Records and is available now for pre-order.

“Season of the Damned II” follows previously released singles “Deathbound” (feat. Rob Watson), “Survival Denied,” “Bloodbather” (feat. Matthias Tarnath) and “Divination of Doom.” Serving as Merciless Destruction’s closing track, “Season of the Damned II” is different from the rest of the record. More melodic and epic, it concludes things on a sublime yet sorrowful note.

Like the fire ends in ashes, the most violent record of the year had to close with the most tragic metal ballad.
