Exclusive Track Debut: Black Fast’s “The Coming Swarm”


Clocking in at nearly 7 minutes, “The Coming Swarm” is just the latest relentless ripper to come from Black Fast‘s strong debut LP Terms of Surrender, coming out in a few days on August 7th. A foursome from St. Louis, Black Fast formed in 2011, joining the ranks of thrash revivalists Warbringer and Toxic Holocaust. Music lifers, both guitarist Trevor Johanson and bassist Ryan Thompson have jazz degrees and drummer Ross Burnett has been playing since kindergarten.

Head below to listen to the new track and hear that expertise come into play. The band will also be touring with Goatwhore and Revocation this summer and fall; all upcoming dates are listed here.
