With the band having just released their new album ‘Kill Grid’ (read our review here) they have shared a new video for track UXO.
“This song is lyrically self explanatory”,
says singer Knox Colby.
“It’s about the cluster bombing of Laos during the Vietnam War. The main focus of the lyrics are about the cultural impact that the unexploded ordnance (abbreviated UXO) has had over the last 50 years. Over 20,000 people have died accidentally from stepping on these bombs that are the size of a softball and scattered over the entire country, which is predominantly covered in dense jungle (last I checked, 35% of the country is still contaminated with UXO). It’s an issue the United States has only recently owned up to, but the government won’t apologize for; it’s shameful.”
A brutal wave of bone crunching guitar and drums that hit like a speeding train. The guys are at the top of their game at present and with tracks like ‘UXO’ that not only brings the heavy in neck destroying proportions but they manage to keep the music from sliding into the generic mush. Theirs is a refined monster that also carries an important message. There is no stopping them, and if the music doesn’t finish you off, Colbys growl will do.
