Betraying The Martyrs will release their new album Rapture on September 13. It'll be their fourth record overall and fourth with Sumerian, and you can check out the single "Parasite" right now. The song opens up with some serious breakdown riffs and transitions into a fair bit of awesome, catchy modern metal.
Here's what vocalist Aaron Matts had to say about the music video and song.
“The song is a subject that I’ve wanted to touch on for quite some time now. It speaks of an internal battle of the minds between myself and that evil self that I’m sure we all have and know all too well.
The story speaks of the innocent untainted self that ultimately trumps and returns to defeat this metaphorical parasite of depression and anxiety. The song is more of a celebration of overcoming a dark period in my life, but can be seen from more than one perspective.
We’re in love with the music video – Igor did a fantastic job as he always does, and we absolutely cannot wait for people to see what we’ve been working so hard on!”
