GODSNAKE Unleashes “Apocalypse For Free”
Lyric Video Of Brand New Album “Eye For An Eye”
Out NOW On Massacre Records!
Hamburg-based metal force, GODSNAKE, is celebrating its second studio album. Eye For An Eye is out now on Massacre Records, and available at THIS LOCATION!
Eye For An Eye features 10 new songs in 47 minutes – Straight into your face! Versatile, heavy, catchy, and very powerful, that’s what GODSNAKE stands for. Contemporary heavy metal with significant references to some of the big old masters: straight, hard, riff-orientated, but never missing catchiness and hook lines. The reptile that is GODSNAKE has been up to mischief in the heavy music scene since 2015 and has successfully established itself in the metallic jungle. Torger (vocals), Stevo (guitar), The Walt (bass) and Sidney (drums), who were already involved in the album Poison Thorn, were reinforced in 2022 by guitar wizard Pepe (Ancient Curse, Sons Of Seasons).
To celebrate their record release day, the band has just unleashed a lyric video for the final album single “Apocalypse For Free”! The clip is now premiering here:
“The term apocalypse as used in this song, describes the steady movement of civilized society and all its achievements towards its downfall. The decay of customs and morals, and especially lack of humanity are omnipresent and continuous. The apocalypse as a horror scenario of the end of the world is thus available to everyone for free, so to speak, without having to do much for it. Call it black humor, but this hits the nail on the head,” the band says.
“Musically, the song is often described as a typical pounding GODSNAKE song with groove and power. Both by the band itself, but also by other listeners. One can perfectly imagine a festival audience jumping to the approaching apocalypse. Maybe such a party mood can still provide some respite regarding the impending last judgment.”
Like their much acclaimed debut, Eye For An Eye was recorded and produced in the LSD studios in Lübeck by mastermind Lasse Lammert (e.g., Alestorm, Gloryhammer, Wind Rose etc.).
The motto for the cover and artwork was ‘never change a winning team’, so the band was once again able to win over Björn Gooßes / Killustrations (including Amon Amarth, Death Angel, Hatesphere) for the design duties.
