Metalcore legends All That Remains have wrapped up their eighth studio album, which will serve as the successor to 2015’s The Order of Things. The band has released two new songs off the yet-to-be-titled disc, “Madness” and “Safe House,” offering varying styles.

“Madness,” heard above, focuses on strong vocal melodies with a powerful radio arrangement, playing with a soft verse and soaring chorus utilizing clean singing throughout the song. Frontman Phil Labonte spoke about the track’s theme with Sirius XM’s Jose Mangin, stating, “People tend to kind of get into kind of ruts in their lives or into patterns and they keep doing the same thing over and over, even though it doesn’t produce the results they’re hoping for.”

Continuing, he added, “You can see a lot of societal cycles where nations just keep doing the same kind of stuff over, and it doesn’t always have great results. But still, it seems like a good idea. So, that’s kind of the idea is like human beings, whether you’re talking about individuals or large groups, they get into these kinds of cycles of repetitive things that can be really destructive and so that’s kind of what I’m thinking, that’s what ‘madness’ is.”

As for “Safe House” (heard below), the song represents the heaviest elements of All That Remains, backed by slugging, breakdown styled rhythms and Labonte’s barking vocal attack. The singer also discussed this song, stating it was inspired by the television show Dexter. “The idea behind it was like, you know, what if like Dexter wasn’t a forensic guy for the police, but was a dude that just kind of set his house up so that it invited home invasion and he used that as his excuse for smoking people? Kind of like it leads the character into the house and into a place where [Dexter] can get away with killing people,” he commented.

All That Remains’ new album is expected to arrive some time in April. The disc was recorded at West Valley Studios in Woodland Hills, Calif. with producer Howard Benson (Motorhead, Papa Roach, Halestorm).
