Massacre’s new album Resurgence coming in October, check out “The Innsmouth Strain”

Posted by on August 12, 2021

 

Massacre will release Resurgence on October 22nd. Ahead of that, the band has released the first single, “The Innsmouth Strain.” You can watch the video down below.

Vocalist Kam Lee offed this:

“It’s all about Lovecraft isn’t it. Honesty though, aesthetically Massacre needed two main things to return to be proper. A) The return to the core roots of O.S.D.M. (Old School Death Metal) style death metal that late 80’s, early 90’s sound. Musically the record has to retain that nostalgic retro style. B) To return to the lyrical aesthetics laden with influences heavily drawn from the stories and fictional mythos that is all Lovecraftian.

‘The Innsmouth Strain‘ is heavily influenced by the H.P. Lovecraft story ‘The Shadow Over Innsmouth>,’ yet has my own twisted take on transmutation body horror aspects thrown in. I sort of lyrically give it a David Cronenberg /Junji Ito type spin on a Lovecraft fiction. So lyrically it is basically it’s about body horror of aquatic transmutation.

Any deeper meaning then that is just speculative, but could simply be metaphor for our world’s current situation with the pandemic and other threats of the spreading of viral infection. Musically it’s just proper O.S.D.M. the way it’s meant to be played and properly represented by Massacre.”

This will be the first album in 7 years for the band from Tampa, Florida. Watch us for more information about Massacre.
