Greek metal masters NIGHTFALL are now premiering a new lyric video for the track ‘Mean Machine’ which was originally recorded by THE CRAMPS in 1994. The track was recorded by NIGHTFALL in December 1996 in Tico Tico studios, Finland and served as a bonus track to the “Lesbian Show” album. The clip can be seen and heard at THIS LOCATION.
Vocalist Efthimis Karadimas comments: “‘Mean Machine’ is the first ever song I listened by the Cramps. Its filthy sound and performance might well be described as a spit to the face of anything normal out there. Lyric-wise I’d say it is more about accepting the role of the bad guy, rather than trying to prove the opposite. The 90s were wild in terms of social approbation. I felt connected to that song for somehow it made me feel it was like we were the ‘mean machines,’ the outcasts, the bad guys, people did not want to have any connection with. The Cramps have ceased to exist, but thanks to Burton’s ‘Wednesday’ Netflix series, they are beautifully haunting our dreams again. ‘Mean Machine’s’ our tribute to them. We share it with you untouched, right from the depths of XX Century.”
The band is supporting their 2021 release, ‘At Night We Prey.’ The album is about depression’s martyrdom and how societies mistreating and stigmatizing those who suffer and can be streamed, downloaded, and purchased HERE.
