Polish metal extremists Decapitated are inching closer to the release of their seventh album Anticult, which arrives via Nuclear Blast on July 7. The band has further stoked anticipation for the album by issuing the video for the new track “Earth Scar.” Watch it here.
“We’re really excited to release the second song from our upcoming new record Anticult — ‘ Earth Scar!,'” said guitarist Vogg. “I have always drawn influence from all spectrums of metal and this song and our new record really reflect those influences.
” Much like ‘Never,’ this song has been designed to crush on a stage and we can’t wait to add it to our set. Rasta wrote the lyrics with a lot of metaphorical content dealing with touring. The opposing lifestyles from the ‘normal,’ day-to-day of being at home vs. being on the road and seeing our ‘tribe’ interacting with the music and the almost restorative qualities of that. We hope you all enjoy it and we can’t wait to see you all very soon!”
Ahead of the release, the band premiered the throttling new song “Never.”
Additionally, the band has shared a guitar playthrough for the song, which premiered via Gear Gods. Watch the riff mastery here. Drummer Michal Lysejko showed off his chops in the drum playthrough for “Never,” which you can view here.
