Diamond Plate: Pulse

Chicago thrash metallers DIAMOND PLATE will release their new album Pulse on August 20th via Century Media/Earache Records. To hear the album in its entirety please visit for the North American stream or for the European stream.

To pre-order Pulse, please head over to CM Distro. Pre-order bundles including an exclusive T-shirt design and autographed photo of the band are available.

Featuring artwork by Gustavo Sazes (MORBID ANGEL, ARCH ENEMY, SEPULTURA), Pulse is DIAMOND PLATE’s second full-length album, and it was once again recorded with producer Neil Kernon (JUDAS PRIEST, NEVERMORE, DEICIDE, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD) in their hometown at Studio Chicago. While their critically acclaimed debut, Generation Why?, was a strategically orchestrated thrash attack, Pulse was written with an emphasis on creating songs from jamming. This “play what thou wilt” attitude, in addition to 19-year-old Matt Ares’ charismatic voice, has enabled the band to cover a much wider range of influences on their sophomore effort that promises to please new and old DIAMOND PLATE fans alike.
