Existentialist have premiered a new video for their new song “Embers Upon Cavalry.” The track, which features Ingested’s Jason Evans, will appear on the band’s new album “The Heretic,” which is set to be released on April 28.
The group commented:
“We chose the track, ‘Embers Upon Calvary,’ as our first single because it’s brutal and hits hard from the start. Musically, it sums up our style, as there’s bits of everything we do in the one track. Plus, each of us get a chance to show off a bit of musicianship. Having Jason on the track was a later decision. A couple of us got talking to him when we played Bloodstock and we thought, this track has some really slammy bits in. Jason ‘The Slam King’ would sound so good, so it happened.
Lyrically speaking, the track starts where our protagonist declares war against their god by burning the most holy site to the ground and massing an army of non-believers. The deeper message in the track references how religion encourages you to ignore or omit knowledge in order to preserve the core teachings. Similarly to the track, the video was designed to be as in your face as possible in order to create an oppressive hell-like feel, both dark and blasphemous.”
