03) Undeath – “Head Splattered in Seven Ways”
Undeath have unleashed their blistering new song “Head Splattered in Seven Ways.” The track is taken from their upcoming sophomore effort, It’s Time…To Rise From The Grave, out April 22nd via Prosthetic Records.
Guitarist Kyle Beam comments:
“‘Head Splattered in Seven Ways’ is all about the number 7: There’s seven syllables in the title, it’s the seventh song on the record, the verse and chorus are in seven AND the bridge section repeats seven times. As if that wasn’t crazy enough, lyrically the song is centered around a deranged interrogation scene with a murderer that possesses psionic powers – the kind capable of making heads explode and splatter in…well, you do the math. Simply put, this is an odd-time death metal banger that you’ll snap your neck trying to headbang along to. Enjoy!”
Vocalist Alexander Jones adds:
“I’m really stoked about ‘Head Splattered in Seven Ways’. It’s definitely one of the crazier, more technically intense songs on the record, so I’m excited that we’re getting it out right after ‘Rise from the Grave’, which is by far one of the most straight forward tracks we’ve ever written. Both songs showcase the number one thing that Undeath is about, albeit in very different ways: the power of a dope riff.
Also, the video that we shot with Errick Easterday is supremely fucked up. Shoutout to McCanns Local Meats, Rochester’s premiere meat emporium, for letting us use their space (and to Mr. McCann himself for starring in the video!) If you’re ever in the area, make sure you swing by for a great banh mi and a cup of coffee.”
