The track is available now for streaming at this location. The single will be released for sale online tomorrow on iTunes, Amazon.com, CD Baby, and more. The track is the second on the album and is described by the band as a good ol’ drinking song.
“‘Watery of Sorcery’ is a quote by Kevin Spacey describing tequila. It’s a drinking song as many before it,” states vocalist Chris Valagao. “Deep as a pint and long as a horn. The moment of clarity when liquor reveals the soul.”
Spiral Empire will be released with Reversed Records on May 8, 2012, and features a unique sound that preserves the band’s legendary, distinctive influences whilst incorporating modern elements, creating a one-of-a-kind listening experience. Spiral Empirewas recorded at The Factory Studios in Vancouver and is produced by Juno Award winning engineer Rob Shallcross (Strapping Young Lad, GWAR, Zimmers Hole, Fear Factory).

WEST OF HELL was formed in West Auckland, New in 2002. The band relocated to Vancouver, B.C., Canada in 2009 in search for a singer that was more than just a screamer, which drastically narrowed the possibilities. The band played a series of shows as a four-piece instrumental, drawing critical acclaim, and ultimately attracted the attention of the local metal community. The exposure led them to Zimmers Hole frontman Chris “The Heathen” Valagao. It was apparent to the founding members that Valagaos’s diverse skills were exactly what WEST OF HELL needed to realize the band’s ultimate vision.
WEST OF HELL is here to reclaim the great genre of metal that has been diluted by straight edge, clean cut posers who look like rejects from American Idol. WEST OF HELL will lead you back down the path of true metal!
WEST OF HELL is:
Vocals – Chris “The Heathen” Valagao
Bass – Jordan Kemp
Guitars – Sean Parkinson & Jordan Knute
Drums – Andrew Hulme
