Harder They Wreck: Homewrecker roll out “Prophet Liar”

Homewrecker have come a long way since their formation; having left a wide swath of destruction down the middle of several scenes. Whether it was grindcore, death metal, hardcore, what have you: Homewrecker were there, crushing it. Their 2012 full length Worms & Dirt seems to have only gotten heavier with each passing season. Earlier this year the band took part in a 4-way split with their brothers in Scorched, Outer Heaven and Gatecreeper, not to mention all the absurdly monstrous releases in-between. Now, after almost nine years, Homewrecker have cast off their shackles of servitude to their influences, and have begun to napalm a path all their own.

To prove that, we bring you “Prophet Liar,” the first (and exclusive) sample of what’s lying in wait on Extinction by Design, the quartet’s impending EP. On “Prophet Liar,” Homewrecker manage to fit a false start and an outro in a four minute song that’s so concussive and so jam-packed with madness, it’ll take at least a dozen listens before you even understand what’s laying you low.

Here’s what Homewrecker’s drummer, the enigmatic Matt Izzi, says about “Prophet Liar:”

‘Prophet Liar’ was inspired by stories from the French Revolution where two people in love would tie each other together, held down by weights and jump off a cliff into water, dying as one. Priests and nuns would do it as well. ‘The final plunge.’ It opened my eyes, and I noticed how a lot of cats lie to themselves when it comes to committing. We blame someone else, but in reality it’s you who is lying, to yourself.

Extinction by Design is out October 14th through Good Fight Music. Catch Homewrecker on tour this fall with Oathbreaker, Iron Reagan, and Skeletonwitch. They’re in Europe right now with Weekend Nachos and The Afternoon Gentlemen, so get out there and show some support.
