Ether Coven have premiered a new song titled “Psalm Of Cancer.” The track, which features Dwid Hellion (Integrity) and Anthony Crupi (Pain Ritual), is from the band’s new album “The Relationship Between The Hammer And The Nail,” which is set to be released on August 5.
Vocalist Peter “Mean Pete” Kowalsky (also of Remembering Never) said the following about the song:
“This song is about my days and nights going through chemotherapy and the moments that the doctors don’t warn you about. They tell you about the nausea and the bleeding, stomach issues, neuropathy, and the lethargy. They somehow leave out the parts that surround depression and suicidal thoughts.
This is/was no easy battle and my heart breaks for anyone else that has had to deal with this or has had loved ones that have experienced this. Cancer is no joke. We figured this was as bleak as it could get, why not add a little more darkness, so we asked Dwid from Integrity to throw some vocals on top of this here and there and the result is absolutely bonkers. This song is dedicated to anyone who knows this struggle.”
