Thrash metal outfit Exmortus is giving audiences another preview of its forthcoming album The Sound of Steel.
The band has unveiled the video for its new single ‘Feast of Flesh.’ It comes roughly a month after the band debuted the lyric video for the album’s lead single, ‘Make Haste.’ Frontman and band founder Jadran “Conan” Gonzalez explained in a recent interview with LA Weekly that lyrically, the song is centered on the human condition in a manner of speaking, and is not meant to be any kind of socio-political or other statement.
“As some may have noticed on my personal page, I don’t just post guitar or band stuff, but a lot of food pictures, and I’m not vegan,” Gonzalez said. “‘Feast of Flesh’ is a celebration of our carnal needs and desires. I’m not trying to make any political/environmental statements, but I feel this song expresses the ugly and brutal nature of humans and other animals. It ain’t pretty, so we thought it would be fun to shoot the band chowing down on actual raw flesh fresh from the meat market.”
Gonzalez added his girlfriend played a direct role in the video and that her inclusion made the video all the more personal for him.
“My girlfriend was willing to play the hapless victim of the carnage, which made the whole experience quite fun and yet funny since we were all trying to act and not laugh at the whole idea. The song itself is more of a caveman stompy headbanger, so the music works beautifully with the lyrics and visuals in bloody harmony! So sit back, and enjoy the ‘Feast of Flesh’! Cheers!”
