You know, there’s a short list I keep of bands I’d love to get a new record from. Necrophagist is one; Carcass, too. Pig Destroyer is another — but from what I understand, that soon will change.
I have wanted a new album from Vision of Disorder for so long, I almost can’t believe that shit is happening, but it is indeed.
Tim Williams, the band’s frontman, says the new Vision of Disorder album will be called The Cursed Remain Cursed.
“This record is vintage VOD,” he tells Terrorizer, “but we’ve all grown as musicians and individuals since the last stuff we released. It’s pretty diverse. You’ve got songs like ‘Blood Red Sun’ that are among the most forward-thinking, progressive things we’ve ever done, while still being real vicious—but there are some straight up numbers too, like ‘Hard Times’ and ‘Loveless.’”
Williams tells Terrorizer that “lyrically it’s coming from a pretty dark place, falling into the pits of one’s own personal hell, and having to crawl out or die down there, plus there’s some more political stuff too. This has been a long time in the making and we just went with what felt right.”
The Cursed Remain Cursed will be released later this year through Candlelight Records.
I wonder if the V.O.D. dudes are pronouncing it straight “cursed” or if they say it like I do: “curse-ed.” Maybe it’s The Curse-ed Remain Cursed. Or vice versa. Either way, I’m more excited for this album than I am for the new Pig Destroyer.
Actually, my anticipation for both releases is pretty fucking high.
