We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Death Rattle’s new lyric video for their song “Sentenced to Hell” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band”s forthcoming sophomore full-length album Volition, which is scheduled to be released tomorrow, October 20th. You can purchase the album here.

Death Rattle guitarist Ryan VanderWolk commented on the song:

“‘Sentenced to Hell’ is one of the darker songs on the album, but also the most unifying for the band. This song was the biggest collective effort as far as ‘all hands on deck’ during the writing process. It’s also the first song we wrote for the album. It’s really fun to play live!”

Death Rattle perform thrash with a purpose – music that emphasizes groove and lethal riffage over speed and interchangeable guitar parts. It’s a sound bred from the attitude and angst of New England, a region that has faced economic and social strife and frustration time and again. Yet every time it lowers its head and pushes forward, obstacles be damned.

With more time to work on and fine-tune the songs on their second album, Death Rattle were able to approach each cut from various musical directions to see what worked best. The band recorded the final tracks appearing on Volition at Brick Hithouse studio in Cape Cod, MA with engineer Sean Fitzpatrick over the course of several months.

Death Rattle will support the release of Volition on their upcoming tour supporting The Convalescence, Wings Denied and Shaping The Legacy. Death Rattle will appear on dates running from October 21 in Placerville, CA through November 18 in Englewood, OH. See below for a full list of tour dates.
