If there’s one thing we love to do here at Blessed Altar Zine is premiering albums or singles and boy, do we have a treat for you today. We have the pleasure to present you the new single from METHANE, “Thin the Herd”, one day ahead of its digital release, coupled with a music video! “Groove” might be the best word to describe this great song. Even if it’s mid-paced, it compensates by being punchy and aggressive, its steady rhythm filling your veins and compelling you to start a mosh pit in your living room, workplace or wherever you might find yourself. Lyricswise, here’s what the band had to say about the song: ”The lyrical theme of Thin The Herd is a reflection of our society’s anti-social /social behaviour, and dedicated to all the attention whores, cry babies and catfish dwelling on the internet, echoing a world of Facebook zombies infecting one another by creating mass hysteria.” Also, I have to mention the sick cover art done by Indonesian metal artist Eka Saptura for Pzychoart, which captures the theme of the song so damn well. After the worldwide release on Friday, September 27th, METHANE will gear up for an upcoming European and West Coast tour. Check the single bellow and also the dates for the upcoming concerts!
