WARNING: The video contains graphic violence, which neither expresses the viewpoint of CROM Magazine, its owners nor its contributors.

Death metal defenders of the old Gruesome released a NSFW video clip for the new song "Fatal Illusions," which can be viewed in the player above! The song will be featured on the second full-length album "Twisted Prayers," which drops on June 1st as a CD, LP, deluxe LP, cassette, and digital download via Relapse Records. Pre-orders can be made over here.

Issues vocalist/guitarist Matt Harvey, "'Fatal Illusions' is a track that was truly co-written by Dan, Gus and myself musically and it was a lot of fun to arrange everyone's riffs while we put the song together. One of the coolest things about this new record, for me personally, is that the writing has become more and more of a team effort, which is invigorating and keeps things interesting for us. When looking at Spiritual Healing for inspiration, one of the more depressing realizations that I came to as far as the lyrics, was that many of the topics that DEATH were addressing back in 1990 are still major issues today. As everyone knows, mass shootings have reached epidemic proportions in this country and we felt that it was a very 'death metal' appropriate topic to tackle. This tune is more about the delusions that lead someone to commit this kind of violence; the mindset that would make someone take such a drastic and tragic course of action. Before anyone starts projecting their own politics on the song, this is not an anti or pro-gun song. This is an anti-mass shooting song. And if you think that there's anything controversial about that, you can fuck right off."
