Montreal based deathcore pioneers, DESPISED ICON, will unleash their Nuclear Blast debut, “Beast”, on July 22. Today, the band has released a music video for the track “Bad Vibes”, directed by Jessy Fuchs of Slam Disques (OBEY THE BRAVE, SIMPLE PLAN), below.
“We’ve often been vocal about the classic death metal bands that have influenced us throughout the years but have rarely discussed the grindcore and hardcore elements in our music,” states vocalist Alex Erian. “Our new single ‘Bad Vibes’ is raw, straight forward and reminiscent of bands like NAPALM DEATH, BRUTAL TRUTH, BIOHAZARD, and MADBALL. The 90’s were a defining decade for us and so we opted for that old school look when putting together this new music video. Beast comes out in a week. Get into it!”
Additionally, fans can stream »Beast« in its entirety via CBC/Radio-Canada starting this Saturday. The feed will cease at Midnight EDT on Sunday, so make sure you check it out at the following link: http://icimusique.ca/despisediconalbum
