Aftermath Premiere Video For Cover Of John Lennon’s “Give Peace A Chance”

Aftermath have premiered a new video for their cover of John Lennon’s “Give Peace A Chance.” You can check that out below:

The group commented:

“John Lennon’s urgent call for peace in “Give Peace A Chance” is more important today than ever, and our call for peace with this cover is the perfect message to follow up our previous album. We released a dark concept album with a bleak message and felt it was important to follow that up with something positive. The visuals in the video are as important as the lyrics in a way. We live in a visual world today and this video needed to get out the message of HOPE. Having a young girl be the focus of the video was our way of getting that across. Seeing only positive acts when she puts on Lennon’s famous glasses was the perfect visual metaphor. Lennon’s message is transmitted not only through his lyrics but also through the perspective created by his unique lenses.”

“In the album’s concept story timeline, ‘Temptation Overthrown’ is at the point when the masses have been truly informed and are united. They know who the enemy really is and it’s time for the people to control.”

“The song is about waking up and having an open-mind in order to avoid the elite’s attempt to Gaslight you. It tells the real rulers of the world we are on to their ways and we will destroy them and their symbols.”

Album Review: Aftermath’s “There Is Something Wrong”

Aftermath’s new album “There is Something Wrong” will be released on Friday (February 15) and I was given an opportunity to listen to it early. The effort is their first since 1994’s “Eyes Of Tomorrow” and it really packs a punch.

Musically, the group mixes elements of their crossover thrash roots with elements of the technical/progressive style that one may find on “Eyes Of Tomorrow.” For instance, a song like “Smash, Reset, Control” will appease those looking for a classic sounding crossover track, while a song like “Gaslight” will appease those looking for a bit more technicality.

Lyrically, the album deals with the concept of control and power. It urges people to take a look at what’s wrong with the world and try to find out the truth about who is really pulling the strings. One lyric from the song “FFF (FalseFlagFlying)” really sums this up: “Know your enemy.” The band are essentially saying world governments are set up as a way to brainwash people, while the real enemies hide behind the scenes. This is why people need to wake up and fight before things grow even worse than they are now. The only problem is, this can seem impossible due to the way the system is rigged. As the track “Diethanasia” says: “Doctors destroy health,” “Government destroys freedom,” and “Media kills information.”

Basically, the album is a full on thrash attack that definitely has an agenda. In the end, it’s up to the listener to decide what they want to believe, but that fits the concept perfectly, because thinking for one’s self is important in these fucked up times.

Aftermath Premiere “Diethanasia” Video

Aftermath have premiered a new video for their new song “Diethanasia.” This track is from the band’s new album “There Is Something Wrong,” which will be released on February 15. The group commented:

“‘Diethanasia’ is the embodiment of the fury and fire that so powerfully defines Aftermath. In a darkened room with minimalist spotlights cast upon each member thrashing in a foggy soundstage, the quick cuts, muscular riffs, and furrowed brows by director Davo create an unrelenting visual experience, perfectly complimenting the frenetic energy of Aftermath.”

Aftermath Premiere “FFF (FalseFlagFlying)” Lyric Video

Aftermath have premiered a lyric video for their new song “FFF (FalseFlagFlying).” This track is from the band’s upcoming album “There is Something Wrong.” Kyriakos “Charlie” Tsiolis commented:

“You’ve read or heard about the phrase False Flag, but never paid attention until you saw it used on YouTube or some other social media sites. False flag events happen more than you think and they’re not specific to one country. The lyrics of the track and the images on the video are meant to alert you. They are a call to WAKE UP. Your governments aren’t your friends or your protectors. Know your enemy. FFF.”
