Massacre have premiered a new song titled “The Innsmouth Strain.” This track is from the band’s new album “Resurgence,” which will be released on October 22.
Kam Lee said the following about the new album and song:
“It’s all about Lovecraft, isn’t it? Honesty though, aesthetically Massacre needed two main things to return to be proper. A) The return to the core roots of O.S.D.M. (Old School Death Metal) style death metal that late ’80s, early ’90s sound. Musically, the record has to retain that nostalgic retro style. B) To return to the lyrical aesthetics laden with influences heavily drawn from the stories and fictional mythos that is all Lovecraftian.
‘The Innsmouth Strain’ is heavily influenced by the H.P. Lovecraft story ‘The Shadow Over Innsmouth’ yet has my own twisted take on transmutation body horror aspects thrown in. I sort of lyrically give it a David Cronenberg/Junji Ito-type spin on a Lovecraft fiction. So lyrically it is basically about body horror of aquatic transmutation. Any deeper meaning then that is just speculative, but could simply be metaphor for our world’s current situation with the pandemic and other threats of the spreading of viral infection. Musically it’s just proper O.S.D.M. the way it’s meant to be played and properly represented by Massacre.”
