Swedish Death Metal machines In Reverence penetrated the minds of all with their last single Prometheus; a shocking and amazing piece of music. Now they are back to grind us to dust with their second single entitled THE SIXTH BLOODLETTING of their upcoming album entitled The Selected Breeds.
Catching up where they left off, In Reverence is a Swedish Death Metal band formed in 2010 and hit the scene hard last month with their last effort Prometheus. This single however brings in some more heavier and slower elements, and the perfect combination of speed and brutalitiy. The track “The Sixth Bloodletting” is all about the human brutality inflicted upon this planet.
From the mouth of guitarist Pedram Khatibi Shahidi:
“This song is telling a story about the beginning of a human induced mass extinction. According to what I’ve read and heard about in the world of science, there have previously been five mass extinctions in the history of our planet and with what’s going on right now scientists believe that we are headed towards a sixth mass extinction (thereof the song name “The Sixth Bloodletting”).”
“The song also has a personal meaning to me because I wrote it during a heavy period of my life so it also contains a lot of anguish with a suicidal touch (referring to “Murder me, chop off my limbs, Burn down my flesh, defile my ashes, Only if you bring my kind with me”).”
Recorded, mixed & mastered by Sverker Widgren at Wing Studios.
