Germany’s ERADICATOR reveal third video from new METALVILLE album
German thrash institution Eradicator reveal the new video “Driven by Illusion.” The track is the third to be revealed from the band’s highly anticipated fifth album, Influence Denied, set for international release on July 23rd via Metalville Records.
Says the band about the video, “‘Driven by Illusion’ is undoubtedly the best metal song of the year, probably even of the whole decade. The track couldn’t have been produced better, it’s tightly recorded, and the lyrics fit like a glove! Seriously, it is alarming that today arrogance and overestimation of oneself determine the social interaction and especially the conflicts. The theory of Dunning and Kruger provides a plausible explanation for these symptoms, which we also present in the accompanying video. Check out the new track and decide for yourself whether our self-assessment was ‘Driven by Illusion!'”
See & hear Eradicator‘s brand-new video “Driven by Illusion” in its entirety HERE at the band’s official YouTube channel.
Influence Denied is the sovereign consequence of the previous long-players. The band’s passionate claim to raise their music to a new level results in audible joy of playing and convincing compositions: Eradicator‘s new work combines the sound of the San Francisco Bay Area ala Testament or Death Angel and the Teutonic elemental force of German genre greats like Kreator or Destruction. Fused with the soul of the band, the result is a massive thrash metal concoction.
With incisively authentic thrash metal and equally perceptive song lyrics, they hold a mirror up to society on their new album. Encouraged to critical reflection and humility, there are no compromises musically, however, because Eradicator unpack the scantling.
The new tracks were produced together with Orden Ogan mastermind Sebastian “Seeb” Levermann (Asphyx, Brainstorm, Rhapsody of Fire, et. al.), who is also responsible for mixing and mastering. The cover illustration was penned by Mario Lopez
