Estonia’s most pioneering modern metal band brings a breath of fresh air to this summer heat with their latest release Ego Death. Known for pushing themselves beyond their comfort zone, HORROR DANCE SQUAD has proven time and again that they can conquer new territory with ease. And the opening seconds of Ego Death fulfil the promise their fans have come to love and expect from the band: a juicy and unapologetic blend of pop, punk, and metalcore cowritten with Sander Sadam and wrapped up in a massive mix by Cody Stewart.

Reflecting the musical direction of Ego Death, the lyrics speak about self-surrender and transformation. Singer Karl Mesipuu explains, “With this song we are exploring our inner selves and the way we interact with the world around us. We want to reflect on how we are living our lives and how to act with others to make ourselves better.”
Singer Ian Karell adds, “As I get older and take on new responsibilities in life, I recognise the importance of ensuring my actions are not rooted in selfishness. The ego is essentially selfish, so by killing the ego, or at least giving it a backseat, you are able to confidently pursue a more altruistic life.”
