Tourniquet Fights Brutal with Brutal; Releases New Album Art and Title

Technical metal favorite Tourniquet has come off a nine-year hiatus, and are preparing to release a new album, coming this Summer. They released the title and cover for the new album, with their most brutal and in-your-face message to date, last week.

The album, Antiseptic Bloodbath, is named for the title track, which bears a message about "the way our society prefers to sanitize brutality."

Long-time animal advocates, Tourniquet's new cover -- and the song that goes with it -- is about as subtle as a kick in the teeth.

The art was done by Travis Smith, who has also done album art for Avenged Sevenfold, Iced Earth, King Diamond, and others.

The Antiseptic Bloodbath teaser video is below:

You can see a larger view of the cover, and read Tourniquet's explanation of the art and song, at their facebook page.
