“Gnawing From Inside” is the alarming new single from Syracuse-based metal outfit Freya, taken from the band’s impending fifth full-length album “Grim.” As the album nears release at the end of the month, the band has issued the early single for public consumption below.
Offers Freya vocalist Karl Buechner (also of Earth Crisis, The Path Of Resistance, and more) on the morose concept of this new single:
“Essentially, the song is about a group of people trapped indoors isolated out in the wilderness in the dead of a brutal Winter after they deplete their stocks of firewood and food they start to hallucinate and slowly turn on each other. Cannibalism seems like the only choice to survive.
“When Flynn and I started to look into the background of the original Hansel and Gretel folk tale, one of earliest versions is even more horrifying then the one we’re all familiar with. The father leaves the two out in the forest so that the parents won’t themselves be tempted to kill and eat their own children over the course of a harsh Winter!”
