Post-metallers Irist have just shared a colossal new single, Surging Ablaze.

Says vocalist Rodrigo Carvalho of the track: “Surging Ablaze is a song about the contemplative journey, and meditative states, one experiences when getting to the other side of a difficult situation. On top of a beautiful lead for the chorus, Pablo wrote an insanely heavy riff towards the end of the song that definitely sticks to you. This is a rhythmically more measured song for us, and the fact that we were able to add some lyrics in Portuguese makes it even more unique.”

Their upcoming EP Gloria is out in full on September 16 via Nuclear Blast.
