With two weeks of 2015 officially on the books, we now know what release Melotov Records (label home to ACxDC, The Banner, Old Wounds etc.) will be kicking the year off with - the debut EP Diabolus Vobiscum by Pennsylvania's Outer Heaven.

While hardcore and thrash often have a symbiotic relationship, it isn't as often that you see death metal align itself with its breakdown companions. However, Outer Heaven have managed to mesh the genres in a sparse yet doomy way that keeps the EP interesting without being overwhelming.

Today we have the privilege of debuting the track "That Which Was Taken", head below to listen to it for the first time now.
