Track By Tracks: Blackhearth - Feast Of The Savages (2024)

This is a concept work about Belshazzar's pride and his failure to honor the God of Israel.

1. The Whore:

The low-key opening gives way to a punchy verse, with Asier's drums almost bombastic in their intensity, and the band also shines on the Arabic part.

2. Feast Of The Savages:

This is a dynamic rocker which kicks off the EP with a bang. After one airing, the chorus is instantly memorable. The lyrics tell how Belshazzar holds a great feast and drinks from the vessels that had been looted in the destruction of the temple of Jerusalem.

3. Cryin' Out For Escape:

Powered by a thunderous riff 'Cryin' Out For Escape' is another racy rocker which keeps up the galloping opening pace. This is a relentlessly fast-paced song, featuring a hard-hitting chorus and enigmatic lyrics, which explain how a hand appears and writes on the wall. The terrified Belshazzar calls for his wise men, but they are unable to read the writing. They are damned by God.

4. Fallen Kingdom:

After the doomy opening, the mood turns from dark to sorrowful, as Alain spits out Alex's lyrics of disillusionment and similarly, the surprisingly heavy chorus contrasts with the piledriving riffs of the verse. Babylon is fallen and his kingdom has given to the Medes and Persians.

5. The New Jerusalem:

It's a great example of the feel of the EP in its really heavy riff and lyrically it’s a very dark, atmospheric, and powerful song that really epitomizes what the album is all about for us. The lyrics tell how King Cyrus liberated the Hebrews.
