Angerot have premiered a new video for their new song “Bastard Creature.” The track, which features guitars from Sammy Duet (Goatwhore) and Jack Owen (Six Feet Under), is from the band’s new album “The Profound Recreant,” which will be released on March 24.
Guitarist/vocalist Chad Petit commented:
“This song was actually nearly fully written and demo’d when we did the Divine Apostate album. I just felt I needed to flesh it out vocally a bit more, so I am glad we took our time with it. The concept for this one started with our modern global situation… modern media and modern liars.
We live in a time when headlines and singular comments matter… not the real story or the facts. If we live in this type of world now, then chances are, we have prior. The nature of those with power and influence have defined humanity since the beginning of time.
So that said, what if the angel Gabriel lied. What if Gabriel announced the opposite of what he was instructed to do, only to benefit himself? What if it wasn’t God’s child to Mary, but Lucifer’s? Gabriel knew he would be elevated among the followers of God and no matter the cost, he would become the Great Deceiver by announcing the birth of Christ as the son of God and not as the birth of the Bastard Creature. Headlines… what’s one little lie to the people?
As for the video, it was a bit spontaneous. We worked with Sammy Duet as a guest on the track and Jason and Bill have a long-standing relationship with him spanning back to the early 90s and Acid Bath. They were all involved in an Acid Bath tribute show which Sammy flew in to be a part of. We figured we may as well shoot a video for ‘Bastard Creature’ while he was here. I always wanted to do a video with fire… so this song was very fitting and the fall weather was perfect for it. This shoot was a ton of fun. We just kept it simple… beers, friends and good times.”
