Exclusive Song Premiere: “Creatures of Habit” by Globe and Beast
Today, RevolverMag.com brings you the exclusive premiere of “Creatures of Habit,” a new song by San Diego’s Globe and Beast. The song off the band’s new album, Grandfather’s Axe, which will be released March 19 by Melotov Records.
On Grandfather’s Axe, the SoCal quintet churn out anthemic hardcore shrouded in gloom. Theirs is a unique combination of vibes: the aggressive meets the dissonant, the crushing meets the dismal. Somewhere between the frontal assault of Buried Alive and the spiraling depression of Kiss It Goodbye or Cursed, songs lurch forward like a wall of black storm clouds devouring all in their path. What makes it thrilling is not only the destructive power but the ominous mood.
Frontman Blake Backer’s lyrics lay bare his personal demons. In “A River’s Mouth,” he roars: “We move like drones, slaves to a clock… / The monotony feels like a fucking curse / I see uncharted waters up ahead / They’re open, they’re endless, relentless / Destinations unknown / I hope I find peace, a place to call home.”
Grandfather’s Axe was recorded by Alex Estrada at The Earth Capital (Touche Amore, Xibalba) and mastered by Bill Henderson at Azimuth Mastering (Crazy Spirit, Perdition).
Globe and Beast will hit the road this spring.
