Your Chance to Die has released their official video for Requiem for the Blessed Damned off their Red Cord Records debut album Suscitatio Somnus (released 8/30/11).

“it’s an album that keeps you pumped up from beginning to end. Not only is the music brutal and heavy, but the lyrics are just as heavy. While listening to the album, I would highly suggest checking out the lyrics. There is a lot of truth found in them that fit the brutality in which they are delivered.”

“What you have in Suscitacio Sumnus is a solid album from a hard working band…[Jamie] King was able to produce was a clean sounding album that captures the essence of who YCTD is…a brutal front backed by a positive message.” –
