Signs Of The Swarm Premiere Music Video For New Song “Hollow Prison” Featuring Despised Icon’s Alex Erian

Signs Of The Swarm have premiered a new video for their new song “Hollow Prison.” This track features Despised Icon’s Alex Erian and it will appear on the band’s new album “Absolvere,“ which is set to be released on September 24.

Signs Of The Swarm’s David Simonich commented:

“‘Hollow Prison’ is one of our collective favourites on the album. It brings together all the key elements of Signs of the Swarm, while expanding to complement Alex Erian’s vocal style and delivery. That’s not to say this is Despised Icon worship, though all deathcore kind of is in a way, rather we siphon that through what makes us who we are. It’s one of the moshiest songs we have.

Lyrically, it talks about being captive in our mortal shell, awaiting the inevitability of death as repetition slowly eats us away. Add the cycle of despair to ‘death and taxes.’ It’s a challenge to everyone to break that cycle and transcend disillusionment.”

Erian added:

“I said yes as soon as I heard the song, and I don’t agree to features often – especially these days. Despised Icon was on a break due to lockdown, things at work were also on hold, and I was spending way too much time home alone. Collaborating on this track with David and the boys was my outlet. I hope you dig it. Signs of the Swarm are the future of deathcore in my book.”

Signs Of The Swarm Premiere “Totem” Music Video

Signs Of The Swarm have premiered a new video for their new song “Totem.” This track is from the band’s new album “Absolvere,” which will be released on September 24.

Bobby Crow said the following about the new song:

“‘Totem‘ is a solid cross section of what to expect from ‘Absolvere‘. Crushing riffs collide with insane drumming, all layered underneath explosive yet memorable vocals. We turned Dave (vocals) up in the mix, yet it doesn’t take away from the musicality at all; it complements it. Oh yeah, and this is far from the heaviest track on the album, so get ready.”

David Simonich added the following about the video:

“I’m incredibly proud not only of the music and lyrics but also the video we did with Eric DiCarlo of SquareUp Studios. I get super involved with the visual aspect of our videos. In this case, I worked on the burning book, body paint and hands.

The hands grasping at me is a metaphor for us being pulled in different directions. The book is a reference to the line ‘bled my blood in the pages,’ which highlights us pouring our life into the band. The fire symbolizes how difficult dedication to the band makes managing the rest of our life. We wouldn’t have it any other way, though.”

Crow also commented on the new album:

“‘Absolvere‘ makes good on the musicality we were striving for on ‘Vital Deprivation‘ and combines it with the eerie atmosphere and brutality on our first two albums. We added a myriad of new sounds, techniques and vocal styles as we collectively composed each song from the ground-up.”

“Absolvere” Track Listing:

01. “Hymns ov Invocation”
02. “Boundless Manifestations”
03. “Dreaming Desecration”

Signs Of The Swarm Recruit Kublai Khan & Molotov Solution Frontmen For New Song “The Collection”

Signs Of The Swarm have premiered a new song titled “The Collection.” This track features Matt Honeycutt (Kublai Khan) and Nick Arthur (Molotov Solution) and an official video for it can be found below. The band commented:

“The collaborative vocal efforts of Matt Honeycutt (Kublai Khan) and Nick Arthur (Molotov Solution) on the track not only was an incredible experience for us, but really helped to round out the song as it was coming together. Pushing us to experiment with the aspect of it being a single. The lyrical content behind ‘The Collection‘ stems from the idea of behind the fan craved concept, the hivemind. An entity that has complete control and manipulation over its people to hold power over its entities. We see this with large governments, religions, cults, and so on.”

Signs Of The Swarm Premiere “Pernicious” Music Video

Signs Of The Swarm have premiered a new video for their new song “Pernicious.” The group commented:

“‘Pernicious,’ as a whole, we feel encompasses everything that Signs of the Swarm is and has been as a band. Meshing older core elements of the band with our desire to push ourselves creatively and musically, we are excited to deliver to the fans what we feel is our best song to date. Lyrically, the song touches on the subject of manipulation and control. Many of us experience this in some form or another: from our individual lives to the people around us. These situations can take control of us and affect us in very harmful ways, the idea of the puppet on strings is a metaphor for this.”

“As a long time fan, I originally submitted myself to be in the metal choir, and I didn’t get the audition. After this I sat down and thought of a way to be a part of the doom community.. but in my own way. I wanted to celebrate the release of DOOM ETERNAL and decided to demonstrate how awesome vocals would sound on the composer, Mick Gordon’s material. All the way around this was a super fun project and I had a blast!”

The group said the following about the new record:

“We are pleased to present our third album via Unique Leader Records, ‘Vital Deprivation‘.

We began writing for the album shortly after TDOE was released. From the beginning we had a sound in mind that was more aggressive and fast paced, but equally as brutal as our previous releases.

What makes this album different from our past is that we wrote with pleasing ourselves in mind first and foremost. We’ve covered a lot of ground in just under 40 minutes. Some of the album may be what you expect to hear from us, and hopefully some may not.

David Simonich is a powerhouse of a vocalist bringing a whole new range of motion to the band’s spectrum. His lyrical content and cadence bring a more emotional and poetic energy to Signs while retaining the aggression he’s become known for.

We’d like to thank Carson Slovak & Grant McFarland for helping us to shape this album into a coherent message from beginning to end.

Thank you to our fans who have supported us relentlessly, this is the first of many to come.

Please enjoy ‘Vital Deprivation‘.”
