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.”

Signs Of The Swarm’s David Simonich Records His Own Vocals For “The Only Thing They Fear Is You“ Off “Doom Eternal”

Signs Of The Swarm frontman David Simonich has decided to record his own vocals over “The Only Thing They Fear Is You.“ The original track is an instrumental piece that was featured on the score to “Doom Eternal.” Simonich commented:

“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‘.”
