Bay Area Thrashers INFEX have released a lyric video for "The Abyss," a track from forthcoming album Burning in Exile. The video was directed and edited by Lance Woodruff. Commence thrashing at youtu.be/k-4IbkTi9dk


Concerning the lyrical inspiration for "The Abyss," the band had this to say:


"The Abyss was inspired by the famous quote from Friedrich Nietzsche - 'Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.'


We find the quote relatable more than ever in today’s super-charged political and existential social climates. That which we hate, we become. The Abyss is a metaphor for the oppressive anxiety of the modern day social climate. It’s like staring into the darkness of the Abyss, overwhelmed with fear of what happens when we come out the other side. As it consumes you, you become one with it, and panic attack becomes the daily norm."


INFEX will self-release Burning in Exile August 13 on CD, digital, and limited edition red translucent 12" vinyl formats.
