The heavy metal 'n' roll dark madcap visionaries collectively known as AVATAR — vocalist Johannes Eckerström (vocals), guitarists Jonas Jarlsby and Tim Öhrström, bassist Henrik Sandelin, and drummer John Alfredsson — have shared another new song. Today, the band has released "Cruel and Unusual." 


"It feels self-evident," the band states about the track. "Violent thoughts channeled through violent riffs, demented thoughts driven by a sick groove. It's simply a very sexy song."

Earlier this fall, Avatar, who are known to smash the boundaries between band, theater troupe, and cinematic masterminds with a series of celebrated albums and videos, and the immersive world of Avatar Country, a fantastical land where metal rules supreme, released four new songs. Avatar also previously announced they signed to Thirty Tigers and have launched their own Black Waltz Records imprint.
