Jesse comments, “‘Eye for an Eye’ was the first song I heard from Human Target as it was the first one to be drafted in the writing process. I really liked the vibe of the track, it’s pretty moody with a good Thy Art kind of feel and was the most challenging song for me to record. Overall it’s a good example of how we’re trying to push ourselves instrumentally, while keeping the song writing at the forefront.
The hardest part to track was definitely the buildup to the last breakdown as the pattern is tricky to get the feel right. You can actually hear the floor tom distort because I was so pissed off during the tracking of that part. It’s also got the fastest double bass on the record, with 4 bar segments of 270bpm 16th notes in the verses.”
THY ART IS MURDER‘s earth-scorching fifth record, Human Target, was unleashed unto the world on July 26, 2019 via Nuclear Blast (ROW) and Human Warfare (AU/NZ). The band offers fans the music video for the fourth single, “New Gods“. Directed by Elder and produced by HAUS PARTY / Elder & Todd Farley, the meta conscious video providing commentary on the “New Gods” can be viewed here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NfyTg6gzY4
Guitarist Andy Marsh comments, “‘New Gods‘ is interwoven in theme with the song ‘Chemical Christ’, discussing the idea of mental health and modern inventions’ intervention with a natural state of consciousness. The idea that social media is one of the major driving forces of increasing levels of depression in the western world was fascinating to us, and we thought what better way to use the platform ironically to discuss these ideas than by using an aspect ratio designed specifically for it. We hope you watch the clip and then put your phone down, life is better through the eye of the beholder than the lens of an algorithm.”
Human Target was produced, engineered, mixed and mastered by Will Putney at Graphic Nature Audio in Belleville, NJ. The artwork was once again painted by Eliran Kantor (HATEBREED,TESTAMENT, ICED EARTH, SODOM).
