Crossover unit Take Offense share thrash-fuelled new single ‘S.W.O.’

Cali thrashers Take Offense have released their new single ‘S.W.O.’, the third taken from their upcoming album ‘T.O.tality’ out 10th May via MNRK Heavy.

New single ‘S.W.O’ (Split Wide Open) plunges into Slayer-like fury, chugging ahead at near impossible speeds while taking time out to throw in impressive fretboard gymnastics and a few dive bombs. The track isn’t just senseless savagery though, as vocalist Anthony Herrera explains that the underlying inspiration stems from emotional vulnerability. ‘Split Wide Open’ is about being a writer and putting yourself out there. These things can be very personal, but they also mean a lot to others too.”

Take Offense forge ahead towards new frontiers on their forthcoming album ‘T.O.tality’. After nearly two decades of grinding and the accompanying blood/sweat, Take Offense have mastered their craft, reaching the pinnacle of their expansive sound. ‘T.O.tality’, their fourth overall album and label debut for MNRK Heavy, is marked with a sense of modernity – incorporating the hard-driving ethos of thrash, the finesse of speed metal, the sneering tenacity of hardcore all while nodding to their home of Southern California.
