Kam Lee might have won the battle for the Massacre name, but Terry Butler is likely to win the war of band quality with Inhuman Condition, the new old-school new death/thrash act very much in the vein of classic (i.e. pre-Promise era) Massacre. Consisting of Butler on bass, Jeramie Kling (Venom Inc., the Absence, Goregäng ex-Massacre) on vocals and drums and Taylor Nordberg (the Absence, ex-Massacre) on guitar, the trio is nearly ready to release their mid-paced battering, whammy-bar flailing debut album Rat°God on June 4 via Kling/Nordberg’s own Listenable Insanity Records.
But before that, Decibel is honored to premiere the video for Rat°God’s opening track “Euphoriphobia” for which Kling provides some ominous context.
“‘Euphoriphobia’ is a collection of thoughts that are channeled into one bullet,” says vocalist Jeramie Kling. “This bullet is then loaded into a chamber of a large weapon. That large weapon is then aimed and ready. What comes next is up to you.”
Check out the video for “Euphoriphobia,” featuring footage from Inhuman Condition’s April 17 performance in New Port Richey, FL with Deicide, below.
Pre-orders for vinyl, CDs, cassettes, and merch bundles of Rat°God are available now here.
