The Convalescence Share Claymation Video For “No Survivors” Featuring Carnifex’s Scott Ian Lewis

The Convalescence have released a new song titled “No Survivors.” This track features Carnifex’s Scott Ian Lewis and a claymation video for it can be found below:

The Convalescence‘s Keith Wampler commented:

“The single is one of the hardest-hitting songs we’ve ever released. The lyrics and video were inspired by the Alien films, and having Scott doing some nasty guest vocals really helped give it the brutality we were looking for.

We played it live throughout our recent European Tour and absolutely loved the energy it brings to the stage. We’re looking forward to this one being a part of our live show for many tours to come. This new album is basically like one big horror movie, song by song each one tells a story. Each one is brutal in its own way.”

A DJ and production manager involved in the tour commented:

“I think that nu-metal is one of the most impactful subgenres of heavy metal to ever exist in terms of how it rippled through the pop-culture of the time.

It’s already been about 25 years since bands like Korn and Limp Bizkit were all over MTV and if every other culturally significant genre of music from the past 5 decades can have its own dance night why not nu-metal?

As someone who loved listening to these bands as a kid and enjoys going out with friends as an adult it just makes perfect sense for us to create a ‘nu’ space where these bands and the genre can be celebrated.”
