Australian metal destroyers AVERSIONS CROWN will release their sophomore album, Xenocide on January 20th via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Today, the band has released the second trailer, in which vocalist Mark Poida and drummer Jayden Mason discuss the band's progression from previous release Tyrant, and the influences behind the forthcoming release, Xenocide:
Jaden Mason comments on the band's progression:
"It's way more sophisticated because we had a lot more ideas and less people involved. It was just a really tight-knit group of people - me, Mark [Poida] and Chris Cougan working on it... we already had the idea, Mark had the concept and we were like, this is what we like and this is what we're going to run with... let's just do it the way we want it"
