The band which gave a name to an entire genre will release the video for "Engineering Human Consciousness - The removal of Intelligentsia in a Machievellian Society" (parts 1&2) on New Year's Eve right here on ThrashHead.com!!
Be prepared people because this video is unlike anything you've heard or witnessed from Hellbastard before, I've gotten a little taste myself and it is fucking righteous!! With last year's release of the "Sons Of Bitches" EP, we witnessed Hellbastard taking their music into new realms...and this will be a hint of what is to come with a new album on the horizon for 2014!!!
Malcolm "Scruff" Lewty had this to say: "We decided to record a new track because I'm an absolute hitler and made it happen,.... the track was originally composed during March 2013 and we finally made it to the awesome HELLFIRE STUDIOS in Derbyshire the same night we played a show..... completed in less than one day we were quite happy with the results... The monstrous AJEET GILL at the helm we worked very quickly and just blasted it out. The video was directed by an old friend Russell Cleave,... we had a band together years ago (1993-1996) called "Nero Circus",... Rusty was invaluable in guiding the whole thing,... We filmed everything over 2 days and had a whole lot of fun doing it.
Immediately after it was finished I was my usual pissed-off self because I'd have rather made a new video for one of the other new tracks we have... I'm like that,... it's me all over. I would have preferred one of the slower/rockier tracks we have but there you go..... the whole storyline is about a Government man that is murdered. Our good comrade "Shotgun Brady" pulls the trigger on the "Gov't man" in the end,... and rightly so, he made deals with Monsanto and Fracking Companies and he was responsible for selling out the environment for hard cash and more power with the oil/petro-chemical companies. It's a strong environmental message throughout,...simply carrying on the usual Hellbastard "theme" which permeated our first album back in the 80's - "Heading for internal Darkness".
I wrote the lyrics with a friend and there you have it. Parts ONE & TWO of one track. It's from the heart, it is HELLBASTARD and that is the be-all and end-all of it. We sincerely hope everyone enjoys it,... Scruff/Laine/Pete/Nathan HELLBASTARD 2013."
We expect to see each and every one of you right here on New Year's Eve so you can crank the new Hellbastard and get ready for 2014 in fuckin' style!!!
So, to keep the stoke up, have a listen to "Sons Of Bitches"!
