ANZILLU Return With “The Cleansing Flame” Music Video and Digital Single!
Finnish extreme metal phenoms ANZILLU – whose sound is punctuated by buzz-saw guitar riffs delivered with equal amounts of dexterous shredding and pummeling brute force – release the third sample from their anticipated debut album. Today “The Cleansing Flame” digital single is available on all streaming and download platforms and you can watch the video HERE. Compiled from studio photos taken of the band during the recording process of ‘Ex Nihilo’ at the famed Sonic Pump Studio with producer Nino Laurenne (Amorphis, Wintersun, Lost Society) producing and mixing.
'"The Cleansing Flame' is a track I wanted to write about driving a big block muscle car," explains guitarist Jesse Kamarainen. "Although the lyrics don't have anything to do with it, the music I had in mind was written as a soundtrack to the smell of gasoline and the sound of loud V8 engines. The song has a mean attitude and drive to it and it takes an unexpected turn in the bridge."
"The lyric video is composed of photographs from the recording sessions of the upcoming debut album. Now one year later, those photos bring back great memories and we wanted to share them with you too. Some gearheads may also be interested about the process and equipment we used."
As mentioned, “The Cleansing Flame” is the third offering from the group following up slamming numbers like “Trumpets Of War” and “Needles (On My Nerves)”. Keep an eye out for more information about next year’s full album release, ‘Ex Nihilo,’ and pre-order options for CD and limited colored vinyl soon.
