Corrupt Moral Altar / Provocative ‘Maximum Bastardry’ single released

Corrupt Moral Altar, featuring Napalm Death live guitarist John Cooke, will release their new EP ‘Patiently Waiting For Wonderful Things’ 27 November, via AFM Records and today the band have dropped the video for their single ‘Maximum Bastardry’.

Vocalist Chris Reese told MetalTalk: ‘Here it is, the contingency plan to what was originally going to be a 4k, 3D, multihundred pound production with more explosions and celebrity cameos than you could be bothered to say “hey, that wasn’t Kenneth Choi” at.

“Instead you get this grotty DIY effort as Liverpool was recently banned from having any fun. It is more fitting really, as this track is about the unsustainable lifestyle of someone getting wrecked every night.

“There can be a romanticism about drinking and drug culture, but this track explores the fact they know they are a terrible bastard, that people get them f**ked up to gain amusement from the resulting behaviour and they are aware that, ultimately, they are f**king up their own life.

“Live in the moment, seize the day… I say Maximum Bastardry.”

The EP follows their previous two full length releases ‘Mechanical Tides’ on Season of Mist’ (2014) and the self-released ‘Eunoia’ (2017).
