Lamb Of God have shared a video for their brand new track “Overlord.”
The song is lifted from the Virginia-based metal band’s new album VII: Sturm Und Drang, scheduled for release on the 24th of July via Nuclear Blast. Various album bundle-deals are available to pre-order now.
Says frontman Randy Blythe of the song: “I wrote the song about the dangers of self-obsession in our distressingly myopic and increasingly entitled ‘me-now/now-me’ culture; just like the couple in the video, many people can’t seem to look past their own relatively small problems to see the bigger picture: the world is in serious trouble. Having a bad day at work, or a fight with your significant other, or getting a crappy haircut or table service does not in any way shape or form constitute an emergency. Sometimes things just don’t work out the way we want them to- deal with it.
“People who only see their own problems eventually wind up alone because no one wants to hear their crap anymore- we all know someone like that, always whining and complaining about some inconsequential setback as if it were the apocalypse. This song is for those people.”
