Kitchener’s Invicta strikes out on a thrash attack across Canada this spring in support of Italy’s Ultra-Violence making it one of the most aggressive thrash tours of the year. Heavy and violent, yet catchy and melodic Invicta has been ripping up stages since their inception in 2017 and is excited to punch the audiences in the face with a thrash metal fist.

This tour will coincide with the release of “Halls of Extinction” the band’s second release and first full length that boasts eight blistering songs of fury. With a more refined and mature sound, it is more thought out than its predecessor (2018’s EP “The Executioner”) in terms of technicality theory and arrangement. The album flows well, is easy to listen to but still packs a very large punch!

Vocalist/guitarist Kyle Edissi adds:

“We think that the fans will really dig this album. We think if someone was a fan of ‘The Executioner’, then ‘Halls of Extinction will really hit the spot for them. The album is a fast, aggressive, in your face style of thrash/death metal with lots of melodies intertwined to make for a unique style of metal that is not only unique but still accessible to listeners and fans of wide varieties of metal.”

Invicta formed in 2017 is a thrash metal band hailing from Kitchener, Canada. Created by Kyle Edissi (guitar/vocals), he later recruited Jonah Kay (guitar), Shareef Hassanien (drums) and Steven Rowlands (bass) to complete the lineup and breathe life into his vision.

The first EP “The Executioner” was recorded in 2018 (with then bassist Gabe Rosa) and it was met with great furor. Now, in 2019, Invicta will unleash their second release, a full length entitled “Halls of Extinction”, which takes the band on a darker, more intense and morbid sounding path. This evolution and maturity sees the band focus more on theory and technicality without losing melody.
