U.K. nu-metal revivalists Wargasm have already earned nods from scene godfathers Limp Bizkit and Jonathan Davis. But on their latest single, "Super Fiend," the group's Milkie Way and Sam Matlock looked to another nu cornerstone for inspiration: Iowan mad men Slipknot.
"Inspired by the bleakness of the 2000AD comic universe, the sound of Slipknot and the way our society is moving," the twosome commented in a joint statement, "we wrote this song because we want to be left alone, free from fake friends and the posturing that can plague the relationships around us. It's nice to be nice, but it's also nice sometimes to just be. With the human experience comes a spectrum of emotions. Anger is energy, suck it up and feel how you feel."
"Super Fiend" appears on Wargasm's newly released seven-track project, EXPLICIT: THE MIXXXTAPE. In October, the band will embark on their U.S. and U.K. and Ireland tour, with stops in the U.S. at Riot Fest, Louder Than Life, and Aftershock. Wargams will also perform at Brooklyn's Saint Vitus on September 22nd. Tickets are available on the band's website.
