Technical/progressive death thrash metal outfit Horrendous officially premiere their new track “Devotion (Blood For Ink)” from their upcoming effort, “Idol“, out September 28th via Season Of Mist.
Comments guitarist/vocalist Matt Knox:
“‘Devotion (Blood For Ink)‘ is a meditation on the tenacity of the creative drive, that black hole incessantly pulling inward, a vortex of desire, self doubt, and the mad pursuit of creative perfection. It’s about finding fulfillment in creation without sacrificing oneself to the forging fire, and traversing the razor’s edge between obsession and oblivion.
Musically, the song is a relentless push forward, plunging headlong into the belly of the beast, ceasing only for a moment to regroup and claw its way out again. In the end, even our greatest passions can devour us, becoming yet another Idol to which we pay tribute.”
As reported earlier, Horrendous have this East Coast mini-tour booked with Tomb Mold and Daeva as support:
11/08 Worcester, MA – Ralph’s Rock Diner
11/09 Brooklyn, NY – St. Vitus
11/10 Philadelphia, PA – Kung Fu Necktie
