Special Ops Now Thorny Bleeders
Special Ops have emerged to become one of the most sought after metal outfits where bottom heavy distorted elegance fuses with ethnically infectious rhythms. These infantry rockers have returned to the battlefront with a fresh new release titled, "Through The Heart of The Infidel".
In their third album, produced by award winning producer & mixer Glen Robinson (Voivod, The Ramones, AC/DC, Gwar, Queensryche, Nashville Pussy) along with the engineering and production talents of Kevin Jardine (Slaves on Dope, Monarchy), Special Ops capture 10 jaw-dropping tracks that display a fusion of the members' diverse cultures.
From Akbar's intricate native Middle Eastern influence of guitar finger picking/ strumming to Abe's unique blend of North American street-style vocal delivery, backed by a well-armed rhythm section of Waldo Thornhill's thumping bass and drummer Clarence McGillacutty's pounding fury, Special Ops have unleashed a direct hit to follow up their award nominated independent release "Phase 2: Amidst The Madness".
"Through The Heart of The Infidel" captures the hearts and minds of anyone who has struggled in protest and demonstrates the trial and tribulations they've seen as a band. Everything from one member's cancer ordeal, to lost loved ones, to industry bulls*** that every artist struggles with, Special Ops deliver an explosive return to their international collective with their brand of hard hitting, sniper rock.
