North Texas devastating death metal act, The Famine, has posted a third track from the forthcoming full-length, The Architects of Guilt, on the band’s official MySpace page. “The New Hell”, the album’s punishing opening track, can be streamed online now at: http://www.myspace.com/thefaminedestroys, while a mobile-web-accessible YouTube audio stream is also available at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0eZCCz2rbA. “The New Hell” joins the recently released, “Ad Mortem” and “VII The Fraudulent”, as the first songs to be revealed from The Famine’s sophomore Solid State Records release.
“’The New Hell’ is a place where Brian Deneke can be killed in part because he has a Mohawk and a leather jacket, and his murderer can get probation for being a good Christian,” explains vocalist Nick Nowell of the new track. “’The New Hell’ is a place where James Byrd can have his body parts strewn across several miles of country road because of his skin color. ‘The New Hell’ is a place where we can all look the other way, and that is much more horrifying than anything I ever read about in Sunday school.”
The Architects of Guilt will hit stores on February 15th.
