An official lyric video was created for the track ‘A Waste Of Life’, which can be viewed below.
Frontman Matt Harvey commented: “‘A Waste Of Life’ was a great opportunity to channel (Death’s) Chuck (Schuldiner) and vent some frustration in a constructive way – through making some good ol’ fashioned death metal. It’s great to move forward in the Death catalog and get some new ground to cover. As much fun as we had working with the raw and nasty stuff on Savage Land (April 2015) and Dimensions Of Horror (May 2016), it’s great to challenge ourselves musically and thematically just like Chuck, James, Terry (Butler), and Bill (Andrews) did on Spiritual Healing (February 1990). Hopefully we do those guys justice and everyone has as much fun listening to the track as we did creating it.”
