The Plague Australian Death-Metal Masters Share “Hacked and Butchered“ Music Video

The Plague

Australian death-metal quintet The Plague have just shared a music video for a crushing new song off their second album “Erosion of Gods”, which is set to be released on October 27th on vinyl, cd and digital via Brilliant Emperor Records. 

Titled “Hacked and Butchered”, this new video is now playing at No Clean Singing, who had this to say about the track “…is a very gnarly and nasty piece of work. It’s also a nasty stew of aural contrasts and complements.”

Vocalist Mike says: “I think the title pretty much speaks for itself, I was watching a lot of documentaries and reading articles about cannibalism at the time and thought a song in that vein would be very fitting for the album. I enjoy stories about horror and the macabre so I wrote some words to provoke thoughts about that subject. The song is about hacking and butchering a human being and eating them, an unpleasant occurrence but it happens nonetheless.”

“Erosion of Gods” follows-up the band’s critically lauded 2021 debut album “Within Death”, and once again sees The Plague churning out a raw, unadulterated death-metal sound inspired by the forefathers of Swedish death metal such as Dismember and Entombed. This chainsaw-fueled masterpiece features ten brand-new tracks that will leave even the most hardened death metal fanatic reeling in awe. Brace yourselves for an onslaught of biblical proportions. Pre-orders are now available at this location.
