Finnish melodic black/death metal band A Lie Nation is set to release their debut album Sociopathology on July 1st 2022 via Inverse Records. The first single Scum is released today.
Guitarist Jussi Tuomisto comments:
“Scum represents a more straightforward in-your-face department of the “Sociopathology” album. The song is a hybrid in styles, it clearly has elements of melodic death metal with a sense of black metal. I think it represents well the energy that we are known for. Nothing extra, no painting of pretty pictures or dreamy atmospheres. Scum is a brutally honest, stripped to the core extreme metal song.”
Vocalist Miikka Pyykkönen continues:
“Lyrically Scum takes a stand on how politicians of today are more concerned about their public image rather than how their policies impact the very society they are supposed to represent.”
