Horrendous are now premiering a crushing new track taken of their forthcoming new album “Idol”. The record is slated for release on September 28th, 2018.
“Devotion (Blood for Ink)” is a meditation on the tenacity of the creative drive, that black hole incessantly pulling inward, a vortex of desire, self doubt, and the mad pursuit of creative perfection. It’s about finding fulfillment in creation without sacrificing oneself to the forging fire, and traversing the razor’s edge between obsession and oblivion. Musically, the song is a relentless push forward, plunging headlong into the belly of the beast, ceasing only for a moment to regroup and claw its way out again. In the end, even our greatest passions can devour us, becoming yet another Idol to which we pay tribute.
Horrendous have previously revealed the artwork for “Idol”, which can be viewed together with the album details below.
