Bring Me The Horizon Premiere “Parasite Eve” Video

Bring Me The Horizon have premiered a new video for their new song “Parasite Eve.“ This track will be included in the band’s new EP series “Post Human.”

Oli Sykes said the following about the new song:

“‘Parasite Eve’ came from an idea to write a survival horror song, but as the pandemic started to develop, the parallels were so similar it felt so close to the bone we decided to shelve it. As time went on, we started to feel how relevant it was and that instead of shying from it, we should address the dark side, embrace it, and process what’s going on… ‘Parasite Eve’ is our message of hope, wrapped in sadness and anger.”

He also discussed things further with NME:

“This song is going to be part of a record that has the same feel along with ‘Ludens‘. We’ve just been winging it and recording from lockdown, and now we’re going to make four different records over the next year and they’ll all share the name ‘Post Human‘. They’ll each be tonally different with their own sound and mood.

That’s one thing we’ve never really done. There’s often been an over-arching theme on our records, but the music has always felt like a collage. That’s cool and I like it, but sometimes you want a soundtrack for a certain occasion and emotion.

The idea behind ‘Post Human‘ is looking at how we’ve stepped out of evolution and the food chain. If we can do that, then we can take responsibility for what we’ve done to the planet and become something better than what humans are right now.”

He went on to talk about the origins of “Parasite Eve,” which was recorded in February:

“It was really weird. We’d heard about the pandemic in China, but then the similarities between what we were writing about started to become closer to reality. Every time there was a news story about it, we’d turn to each other and say ‘Parasite Eve‘, not realising the magnitude of it all.

We shelved the song for a bit because it felt bit too close to the bone. After sitting on it for a while, we realised that this was a reason to release it now more than ever. In our music we’ve always wanted to escape, but there’s been too much escapism and ignoring the problems in the world. It’s not what the world needs.

The world needs more and needs to think about it and remember. You can’t just brush over it and expect life to go back to normal, because it fucking ain’t. In so many ways, we need to change. That’s what rock music is about – addressing the dark side and processing it.

This is a moment we all knew was coming one day, but maybe not in our lifetime. Look at the Black Lives Matter protests too. It felt like we were making progress and people were standing up to injustice, but maybe we got too complacent because it’s still happening. It’s time to be pissed off. It’s not the time to say, ‘These days shall pass’ and ‘everything will be OK’, because it won’t fucking be OK unless we fucking do something about it.”

He also added the following about the first EP in the “Post Human” series:

“You know like on ‘Lord Of The Rings‘ where they all sing a song before battle, knowing that they might die but they’re going got persevere and see how it goes? We’re trying to embody that. This first record is about hope and anger and feels like the sonic equivalent of a riot. We’re inviting people to find the solution with us.

It’s a demonstration to pull you in and get your back up. It’s a lot more aggressive than anything we’ve done for a while. The world doesn’t need light-hearted pop music right now – it needs anthems for anger. There’s so much to be pissed off about.”

Metal Anarchy’s Top Albums Of 2019

I have put together a list of my top 15 albums of 2019. You can check that out below. This is just for fun and I know I probably left out some of your favorites, but these are all the albums that I enjoyed the most this year:

15. Abigail Williams – “Walk Beyond The Dark”:

Abigail Williams’ latest album is a solid display of atmospheric black metal. The band were able to capture the various elements from their past work and fuse them together to create a record that showcases their most dynamic music to date. Some highlights from this one include “Black Waves,” “The Final Failure,” and “I Will Depart.”

14. Fever 333 – “Strength In Numb333rs”:

Fever 333’s debut album seeks to highlight the injustices within modern society through a powerful mix of rock, metal, and hip-hop. The band are on a mission to make a difference in the world and this record serves as their call to action. Some highlights from this one include “Burn It,” “Animal,” and “One Of Us.”

13. Bring Me The Horizon – “Amo”:

Bring Me The Horizon’s latest album is a pop leaning record that left many fans divided. That being said, if you listen to it with an open mind you will find a record full of great tracks from a band that aren’t afraid to push the boundaries of what is seen as acceptable in the rock/metal world. Some highlights from this one include: “Wonderful Life” (feat. Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth), “Sugar Honey Ice & Tea,” and “Heavy Metal” (feat. Rahzel).

12. Awake At Last – “The Change”:

Awake At Last’s latest album takes hard rock and mixes it with catchy pop-like elements. It also contains positive lyrics that inspire feelings of hope and encouragement. Some higlights from this one include the title track, which features Spencer Charnas (Ice Nine Kills), “Dead Generation,” and “Fallen Stars.”

11. Venom Prison – “Samsara”

Venom Prison’s latest album only further proves the fact that the band are a force to be reckoned with in the metal world. It is uncompromising, relentless death metal that deals with heavy subjects such as social injustice, depression, and corruption. Some highlights from this one include “Uterine Industrialisation,” “Self Inflicted Violence,” and “Asura’s Realm.”

10. The Agonist – “Orphans”

The Agonist pulled no punches with their latest album. The effort combines heavy and melodic music with powerful vocals to create the band’s finest material to date. Some highlights from this one include “In Vertigo,” “Blood As My Guide,” and “The Gift Of Silence.”

09. Killswitch Engage – “Atonement”:

Killswitch Engage’s latest album contains some of the band’s strongest material since Jesse Leach returned in 2012. The effort is brutal, melodic, and filled with a sense of passion from a band that is firing on all cylinders. Some highlights from this one include “The Signal Fire” (feat. Howard Jones), “I Am Broken Too,” and “The Crownless King” (feat. Testament’s Chuck Billy).

08. Papa Roach -“Who Do You Trust?”:

Papa Roach have been killing it with their last few releases and “Who Do You Trust?” is no exception. The eclectic album combines elements of rock, pop, and alternative to create catchy songs that you can’t help but listening to over and over again. Some highlights from this one include “Not The Only One,” “Elevate,” and the title track.

07. Korn – “The Nothing”:

Korn’s latest album is one of the band’s best. It is a heavy record brimming with raw emotion that takes fans through the grieving process as Jonathan Davis mourns the death of his wife. The effort lives in darkness and pain, but this openness provides the listener with an authentic experience. Some highlights from this one include “Cold,” “Idiosyncrasy,” and “H@rd3r.”

06. Motionless In White – “Disguise”

Motionless In White’s latest album is another banger that you can’t help but blast through your speakers. The effort combines elements of goth, industrial, metalcore, and electronic music to create anthemic tracks that will probably stay in the band’s live set for years to come. Some highlights from this one include “Brand New Numb,” “Thoughts & Prayers” and “Broadcasting From Beyond the Grave: Death Inc.”

05. Jinjer – “Macro”:

Jinjer followed up their excellent “Micro” EP with a full-length record that continued to showcase the band’s brilliance. “Macro” is a diverse, djenty record full of hard-hitting tracks with incredible vocals and lyrics. Some highlights from this one include “Judgement (& Punishment),” “Pit Of Consciousness,” and “The Prophecy.”

03. Volbeat – “Rewind, Replay, Rebound”:

Volbeat have a knack for creating extremely catchy rock tracks and this record is no exception. It is a fun album full of hooky riffing that just makes you want to boogie. Some highlights from this one include “Pelvis On Fire,” “Die To Live” (feat. Clutch’s Neil Fallon), and “Cheapside Sloggers” (feat. Exodus’ Gary Holt).

02. Tool – “Fear Inoculum”:

It took 13 years to get a new album from Tool, but it was worth the wait if you are willing to spend time with it. Those that listen to it from beginning to end with no interruptions are taken on what can only be described as a transcendental journey through a passage of mesmerizing music. Some highlights from this one include “7empest,” “Pneuma,” and “Descending.”

01. Slipknot – “We Are Not Your Kind”:

Slipknot’s latest album only further cements the fact that they are one of the strongest acts within the metal genre. The effort has everything, aggression, melody, and experimentation all through a deeply emotional lens that offers a sense of catharsis. Some highlights from this one include “Unsainted,” “Solway Firth,” and “Orphan.”
