Australia’s heavy trailblazers Northlane have released their acclaimed new album, Obsidian, out now via Believe.
The band have also debuted their latest track, Abomination.
The apex of classic and future Northlane, Abomination detonates with Marcus Bridge growling over a bed of heavy drum and bass. As Bridge grapples with the facade of happiness, grinding guitars, wild synths and pulverizing electronics synchronize, making you feel like your head is spinning out of control.
“This song is about my inability to keep pretending everything is okay in my life,” offers frontman Marcus Bridge. “I want to be able to spread a positive message with the lyrics I write but as personal and external problems continue to pile up, I feel numb and unable to pretend that I’m happy. I feel like an abomination of what I should be, what I want to be.”
