Video Premiere: Infrared – ‘Father of Lies’

Canadian thrashers Infrared were actively briefly from 1985-1990, releasing one demo called Recognition in Power in ’88. They didn’t reform until 2014, having released two full-lengths since. The latest, Saviours, came out in May and today, Decibel has a video for the track “Father of Lies” from that album. The song tackles a tough topic: Christian religion and its history of abuse, especially toward children.

“‘Father of Lies’ is the most layered song on Saviours,” the band tell Decibel. “Its first three verses are pulled directly from the Bible which describes the Father of Lies (Satan), but the song moves to show the abuses of power from the clergy against its own practitioners, mainly children, in such an evil manner that it is clear they are no better than the father of lies they preach against. So here we have a group of people portraying themselves as saviours all while living complete lies and spewing lies in an effort to conceal and satisfy their sick desires.”

Saviours is out now.
