Swedish grindcore veterans Gadget have premiered the motion sickness inducing video for their track “Enemies of Reason”, which comes from their upcoming The Great Destroyer LP, at Metal Injection. The band’s Rikard Olson said of the track:
“It’s one of the very last songs that we wrote for the album, in December 2013 actually. I’ve had the idea with the drum pattern and the different parts for some time, but no riffs. So I just threw it together late one night when I realized that the recording session was closing in and that we were lacking the simple and short, fast songs. William (Blackmon) wrote the lyrics for it later on and I think it turned out quite good for an album opener.”
“The track is meant to be a march for the atheist revolution; a salute to the critical mind.”
Check out the video after the break.
The Great Destroyer will be released on March 4 via Relapse Records.
