Gruesome (Exhumed, etc) have premiered their eponymous new track from their upcoming debut full-length, Savage Land, over at Noisey. “Gruesome”, as promised, is another throwback to old school death metal with its rampaging, blood-soaked instrumentation. On the track, guitarist/vocalist Matt Harvey comments:
“Okay, full confession: I always wanted to be in a band that had an eponymous song, like Iron Maiden or Angel Witch. It’s the kind of thing you really need to do on your first album, though. With ‘Gruesome,’ I felt like it was the right thing to do. It’s almost like a mission statement, and since, ‘sounds exactly like ‘87-’91 Death’ doesn’t really roll off the tongue, I figured ‘Gruesome’ would work. It was one of the last songs we wrote for the album and it’s definitely one of my favorites. The lyrics are kind of a Cliff’s Notes on Scream Bloody Gore, from the burning bodies of ‘Infernal Death’ in the first verse to the zombie army of SBG’s title track in the last one. Anyway, I think it’s one of the better tunes we came up with and I hope you agree.”
Check out the track over at Noisey now.
Savage Land will be released on April 17 (Germany, Benelux, Finland), April 20 (UK/world) and April 21 (North America). Pre-orders can be placed here.
