News - The Purge Starts With Immolation

View The Article

Immolation have just posted a brand new song called "The Purge" online on their MySpace page.

Commented Ross Dolan: "It was a unanimous decision to choose "The Purge" as the first song off of "Majesty and Decay" to debut to the world. It is the first song on the record and we think it really sets the tone for the rest of the album. "The Purge" is an extremely aggressive and angry song that really has so many elements to it, and it is the perfect opening track as well because it takes the listener through some of the many moods and feelings contained within the album. It is a very extreme song in many ways and showcases all of the classic IMMOLATION elements. Lyrically the song takes the concept we started developing on "World Agony" and expands upon it, taking it to the next level in a very extreme way. We really liked the idea behind "World Agony" and wanted to expand upon it, so when we began the process of writing lyrics for the new record while in the studio, I had the title and a loose concept for "The Purge" and we expanded upon it. "The Purge" is a condemning song that takes an ugly look at mankind and forces us to open our eyes and accept responsibility for our actions. It is a very dark song with lots of emotion that I think will grab the listener right from the opening notes."

The song comes off the bands upcoming record "Majesty And Decay" which will be released on the 8th of March through Nuclear Blast Records.
