Kings Of The Plague


Los Angeles metal titans WINDS OF PLAGUE have released another new music video, ‘Kings of Carnage’, taken from their fifth album, Blood Of My Enemy, on 27 October via eOne/SPV.

Both ‘Kings of Carnage‘ and previously released ‘Never Alone‘ are available as iTunes instant gratification tracks for who pre-order the LP on iTunes. ‘Kings of Carnage’ and ‘Never Alone’ are also available on all streaming platforms.

Blood Of My Enemy is the follow up to the widely celebrated Resistance LP released in 2013. Front-man Johnny Plague said “Over a year ago I started making weekly trips up to a small apartment in North Hollywood on my days off to work on music for WOP with Noah Sebastianfrom Bad Omens. It was strange at first since past WOP records were worked on in larger recording studios or rehearsal spaces and now here I am sitting on the floor of this bedroom working on record number six.” 

Johnny continues, “Although it was different and humbling it proved to be the unedited creative environment we needed for this record. We had no time limits, no ‘suits’ giving their input. It was just a few friends sitting in a room together, having a good time creating music. Something I haven’t been able to experience in a very long time. Sometimes to move forward you have to take a few steps back. I can confidently say this is the most satisfied I have been with a WOP record. I feel producers Noah Sebastian and Joakim Karlsson have helped us to further develop our unique approach to symphonic deathcore with distinct epic orchestral backed choruses walking the fine line of brutal and melodic.” 

Additionally, the band teamed up with artist Pär Olofsson to create the stunning cover art seen below. Johnny concludes “Blood Of My Enemy takes us back to the iconic samurai theme. The imagery is inspired by a lyric from the title track ‘I will give my life on the battlefield, drowning in the blood of my enemy’ Which represents to me a ‘I will fight to the end’ state of mind. Pär Olofsson brilliantly portrays the aftermath of an epic war showing an almost celestial spark of life amongst the carnage.” 

WINDS OF PLAGUE will support SUICIDE SILENCE on the “10 Year Anniversary of The Cleansing” US tour for a handful of dates in December.
