Werewolves premiere their utterly crushing new single ‘Harvest of the Skulls’ and its accompanying music video. ‘Harvest of the Skulls’ is the third single to be taken from the Australian extreme death metal trio’s upcoming third full length ‘From The Cave To The Grave’ due out on June 24 via Prosthetic Records.
Bassist/vocalist Sam Bean (The Antichrist Imperium, The Berzerker) comments: "We thought we'd bring you a happy little track about death and genocide called 'Harvest of the Skulls', which we think is our sauciest film clip so far. Most metal tracks out there that deal with genocide gratuitously recount the action itself. We thought it would be way more horrific if we described what it would be like to be in a country where everyone loses their mind and you're coerced into mass murder… being made to go along with things, like you're forced into a large public service work. As usual, we wrote this a year or two ago and hey presto, just as the song's coming out the world is waking up to a few large ongoing genocides happening right now. We really need to write a track about everything turning out alright and everyone being okay."
Werewolves have also recently announced their first ever set of live performances
June 25 - Crowbar - Sydney
August 5 - Max Watts - Melbourne
November 19 - Froth & Fury Fest - Pirate Life Brewing – Adelaide
‘From The Cave To The Grave’ keeps up the searing pace of the first two Werewolves albums, with a mix of black and death metal and unprecedented aggression that is coalescing into a style of its own. Opener Self-Help Book Burning kicks the door in Hate Eternal-style before deforming into a blackened ending. It’s followed by stadium crowd-pleaser We Are Better Than You, blaster All the Better to Eat You With, and social credit score-destroyer Crushing Heaven’s Mandate. Harvest of the Skulls is an ode to the horror of genocide and the rest of the album blasts through to closing threat Watch Your Mouth, leaving you to enjoy your ringing ears and mild trauma.
