‘The Narcissist’ marks studio return for Devil Sold His Soul
11 March 2021
Ambient influenced Metalcore band Devil Sold His Soul will release the album ‘Loss’ 9 April 2021, their first album under Nuclear Blast Records.
The album will be the first to feature the twin vocal attack of Ed Gibbs and Paul Green.
Paul Green told MetalTalk: “‘The Narcissist’ is our heaviest track on the new record. It was written about the negative and disruptive people we have in our lives from time to time. It is a middle finger to their unapologetic attitude and their inability to grasp reason or logic.
“It seems the world has spawned a lot of these types of people lately and this one is for them.
“We started capturing elements for this track three years ago during our shows in Japan. Jonny, our guitarist/producer, recorded the dissonant warning bells from the train station in Tateishi where we were staying. It is a really cool memory from our time out there and to have it on the track just adds something special for us,. It takes us back to that time and place every listen.
“We worked with the super talented Olli Appleyard on the music video for this track. Oli has an incredible imagination and some techniques and style that are completely unique to him, which we love. The main focus was to make the video aggressive, schizophrenic and imposing.
“‘Loss’ is a diverse record with many facets, each of the singles we have chosen showcases another side of the album’s sound.
“We hope those who are craving something on the heavier side find satisfaction in this track. There is something for everyone on this record and we are excited for you all to hear it on 9 April.”
