Canada metal outfit Sadistic Embodiment are gearing up for their new album, Blood Spell, out September 18th via CDN Records. The follow-up to their three consecutive EP’s Beloved Imprisonment (2019), Blodörn (2018), and Self-Titled (2018) is promised to be a continuation of their ruthless death diversity ranging from similarities of Gojira, Rotting Christ, to Bloodbath and Kataklysm. Today (19th) the group has teamed up with Metal Insider to premiere the lyric video for their second single “Gallows Hill.” The high-energy and unforgiving track is another taste for what their upcoming full-length has to offer.
Guitarist Jason Cullen comments:
“With this song, I went back to my roots, as many may know (and some that don’t) I’m from Ireland. I love to show my love for my country in my music, the first being a huge lyric influence in the song ‘Freedom Cry’ from our EP ‘Blodörn.’
With ‘Gallows Hill’ I once again go back to my homeland with more brutal Irish historical facts from the 1800s. The song is based on the area where hangings happened for horrific crimes committed, where a crowd would form to watch the pain and suffering of the man OR woman of the rope.
This is also my first song for SE where I take lead on vocals with our current vocal lineup. You can feel the pain of both those being hung and their victims’ families in this song, along with catchy groovy riffs and vocal melodies; this will be a song that will stick in your head for a while.”
