UK Sludge metallers Desert Storm have revealed (via Metal Injection) their new track, “The Machine,” which is taken from their fifth full-length album dubbed ‘Omens’ (out 5/1 via through APF Records).
Speaking on the theme of “The Machine,” vocalist Matt Ryan says:
‘The Machine’ is about the ending of mankind. As a whole our species is absolutely fucking atrocious and I find comfort in the fact that one day, we will no longer be a stain on the surface of this planet. A majority of the human race blindly exist and consume in a system that is completely fucked. There is a likeness to sheep and pigs who know no better, who are one day destined to be led to slaughter because of the base level creatures they are. The Machine is the final resolution that will make way for a brighter future. What many fail to realize is that we are not the final stage in the evolutionary process. Celebrate as we move ever closer to extinction.
The band will also tour through Europe and the UK this spring — all dates are below.
