Masters of the slow build Inter Arma are back with their fourth full-length record. Inter Arma will release Sulphur English on April 12 and are streaming the predictably obliterating new song “Citadel” right now. Vocalist Mike Paparo says the song is about overcoming depression and all that ensues.
“The lyrics to ‘Citadel’ were written as a sort of clarion call to myself about overcoming depression and the demons that manifest with it. It, like most of the lyrical content on the record, is deeply personal to me. For the band as a whole, ‘Sulphur English’ is an ill-tempered, unrepentant act of defiance towards stagnation and complacency. We create this music on our own terms and we refuse to compromise our collective vision, for better or worse.”
Sulphur English is available for pre-order now.
