Two decades after their first studio album, Shihad are back to rock basics – saying their latest release is the heaviest in years.
FVEY was recorded in the same studio, with the same producer (Killing Joke frontman Jaz Coleman) as their first studio album 22 years ago. It’s the tenth record the band has released since they first came on to the scene with Churn in 1993.
“I don’t know whether it’s that that made it our best record we’ve made in ages, but it is,” frontman Jon Toogood says.
The band had been touring with Black Sabbath, which had turned them back towards their rockier roots.
