Track By Tracks: Rusty Nails - Seasons Of Hatred (2018)

Share:

After the intro track Minutes Of Hatred, the albums opening song is Years Of Rage. Its lyrics are a clear tribute to George Orwell’s 1984: “Ministry of Truth is lying all the way”. This song inspired the album’s cover, which is also a representation of an Orwellian scene.
Day Of Punishment follows. Here the listener will meet Charon, the dark ferryman of Hades who carries damned souls to eternal retribution.
Dagon is another literature inspired song with lyrics spawning from the Lovecraft cosmogony and has a pretty sinister interlude.
Mind Control was originally the title-track of Rusty Nails’ 2011 EP. It represents the trait d’union with the band’s past. It also contains another hint of Orwell.
Out Of This World explores the inner thoughts of an “old boy”: he does not belong to “modern” society. His peers are lesser and empty. He should have been born in another time and another place.
The Outer Lords is an articulate song, in which lyrics and riffs overlap to take the listener on an epic interstellar ride.
The End Of All Days is the closing song of the album. It takes place during the time of the Spanish Conquistadors, taking a peek at the last breaths of a dying civilization.
Seasons Of Hatred | Released on March 20th, 2018 on Sliptrick Records
