In support of their new album Holy War, Australian deathcore act Thy Art Is Murder have released a lyric video for their blistering new single “Violent Reckoning.”
Focusing on the ideas of corrupt governments and fabricated wars, “Violent Reckoning” is one of the many new Thy Art Is Murder tracks that center around real world issues.
When asked about their new album and the lyrical content surrounding it, guitarist Andy Marsh explained that he and his bandmates purposely approached this record with the intent of exposing serious topics.
“Late last year, we entered the studio in secret to create our follow up to Hate, free of expectation and public pressure. What we came out with was a reaction to things going on around the world that crawl under our skin, that make us feel sick to be alive,” Marsh explained. “Musically, it is darker, faster and more technical than anything we’ve done in the past and it hits hard lyrically. We wrote about concerns of ours, real issues, hardships that people are facing around the world today. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Thy Art record if a lot of those affairs weren’t rooted in religion somehow, and what better way to sum up the state of all things than by entitling our album Holy War.”
Marsh went on adding, “This is our war on racism, homophobia, child abuse, animal cruelty and all evil born of religious immunity, indoctrination and ignorance. It is ultimately a push for secularism and humanism. Without it, we will be left in the hands of mad men.”
