Independent rock band Roadkiller debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The act, which is the brainchild of Phillipa Tank, premiered the video for its new single, ‘Slicker Than Oil’ Monday through Metal Injection. The song is the second single from Roadkiller’s forthcoming record, Pick of the Litter. Its release date and other information is under consideration.
Tank, who is known as a member of the Motorhead tribute band, Motorbabe, said the single features a guest appearance by drummer Dave Witte (Municipal Waste, Melt Banana, Discordance Axis). In addition, she said Witte is just one of the well-known drummers who will appear on the record.
Witte said he enjoyed working with Tank on the new song and video.
“Phillipa Tank’s Roadkiller songs are rocking and full of energy,” she said. “It was really fun to play the tune and film a cool video to boot! Also to be included among a really great group of drummers playing on the record is equally as exciting.”
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Slicker Than Oil’ immediately shows Tank’s Motorhead leanings with its bluesy punk/metal hybrid sound. At the same time, the guitar solos present more of a vintage thrash metal style approach. The duality in that combination makes the overall arrangement an engaging and entertaining composition.
The press release announcing the song and video’s debut did not provide information about the song’s lyrical theme. No lyrics were provided with the video, either. The lyrics are difficult to decipher without a reference point, but from what little can be understood sans lyrics, the song’s lyrical content comes across as a sort of defiant statement.
The video for ‘Slicker Than Oil’ is a relatively simple presentation. It features Witte and Tank performing their new new single on an island that has a defunct rail bridge. Drone footage is edited into the video as part of its overall presentation. The colorful graffiti on the bridge’s posts and the bright, blue sky add to the impact of the video’s general effect, too.
