Signs Of The Swarm: ecco il live video di ‘Borrowed Time’

Comunicato stampa:

SIGNS OF THE SWARM hanno presentano il live video di “Borrowed Time”:

Il video è stato curato da Dylan Gould e cattura alcuni momenti del tour promozionale dell’ultimo lavoro in studio “Amongst the Low & Empty”, pubblicato lo scorso anno su Century Media Records.

Il commento del batterista Bobby Crow:
“Inizialmente avevamo in mente di realizzare un video dal vivo per ‘Pray for Death’, ma dopo aver visto come tutti si scatenano quando diciamo loro di saltare con a ‘Borrowed Time’, abbiamo subito capito quale sarebbe dovuto essere il brano prescelto. Lo scorso novembre il nostro amico Dylan si è presentato al nostro concerto sold-out di Toronto per filmare più riprese di questa canzone per permetterci di creare un’atmosfera davvero perfetta, insieme ad alcuni scatti di altri festival e altro ancora. Pensiamo che catturi bene l’atmosfera dei nostri concerti e mi auguro di saltare assieme a voi al più presto!”

Produced by Josh Schroeder (Lorna Shore, King 810, Tallah, Varials), Amongst the Low & Empty is the first Signs Of The Swarm album to feature an outside producer. Massive, unapologetic and unrelenting in its assault, this fifth full-length keeps listeners on the edge of their seat. Songs like the title track, “Pray For Death” and “Malady” put to shame the slamming “br00tality” of sophomore LP The Disfigurement of Existence, with vocalist David Simonich’s animalistic growls and screeches outdoing any swarm, pack, or otherwise, found in the wild. Despite the savage brutality, the leader of this herd IS the structure that is simultaneously more rigid yet more explorative, complete with a catchy groove underneath – the likes of which hasn’t been heard from Signs Of The Swarm. It’s the bedrock that allows “Tower of Torsos,” “DREAMKILLER” and “Pray For Death” to be as catchy as they are. Songs like “Shackles Like Talons” and “Fire and Stone” split the difference incisively. On the more cacophonous side, industrial flirtations were added both in-studio by band and producer, and beyond, with Joshua Travis (Emmure, Glass Cloud, The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza) and Cameron Losch (Born of Osiris) throwing riffs and ruckus into the mix (“At one point, Joshua Travis was recording a chainsaw in his backyard,” the band reveals). Trivium mastermind Matthew K. Heafy even sent over a guest shout for “The Witch Beckons”.

The resulting 11 tracks are so destructively deafening, it blew out Josh Schroeder’s subwoofer! “We’ve always been a deathcore band,” states Bobby Crow, the quartet’s longest-standing member, who serves as drummer and main songwriter. “But this record is a lot MORE – it’s got death metal, metalcore, djent, some industrial stuff…We wanted to make something that was just heavy.”
