Horrendous will release their first new album in three years titled Idol on September 28. The album will be their debut for Season Of Mist and you can check out the progressive metal shreddings of their new song "Devotion (Blood For Ink)" below.
Here's what vocalist and guitarist Matt Knox had to say about the track.
“‘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.”
Horrendous will hit the road this month with Tomb Mold and Daeva in support of the record.
