Lamb of God have unleashed another track from their forthcoming self-titled album (now due June 19 via Nuclear Blast Records) in the form of “New Colossal Hate” – a song which finds the band at the height of their formidable powers – unrelenting, unstoppable, and as always, setting the standard for aggressive modern music.
“New Colossal Hate,” which hits all digital and streaming services as a single and lyric video today, digs into the exploitative rhetoric and persistent “othering” of marginalised people that continues to divide.
Guitarist Willie Adler comments on the composition of the song, ““New Colossal Hate” came out of our very first writing session in Maine. Mark, our producer Josh Wilbur and I were at a super cool studio in South Windham called Halo. An absolutely beautiful spot run by some of the best people I’ve ever met. I’m pretty sure “New Colossal Hate” grew from a few different demos I had. You know, like parts of car. However, as it started to take shape, it quickly became my favourite song on the record. Please enjoy this banger of a tune. It holds a very special place in my heart.”
“New Colossal Hate” follows the official music video for “Memento Mori,” and the first new Lamb of God music in nearly five years with “Checkmate” back in February. All three songs will appear on Lamb Of God, the follow-up to 2015’s VII: Sturm und Drang which can be pre-ordered here.
