After 2008s Dystopia, Beneath The Massacre announced an ep coming. Vocalist Elliot Desgagnes said Its going to be two years since our last album and we had the idea of a short release while we keep writing for the next full length. We picked five songs to go on the EP and I feel like these are by far the best songs weve ever written. Nothing that different from our other releases but were always getting a little closer to the sound we want. So were all satisfied with the result and are looking forward to share it.
