3.8/5 - (21 votos)

Los suecos Refused siguen adelantando parte del contenido del que será su nuevo disco, “War Music”. Se trata del tema “REV001”, cuyo video se ha estrenado hoy viernes 13 de septiembre y nos muestra al vocalista Dennis Lyxzén como completo protagonista, con la compositora sueca Mariam The Believer como invitada especial en el tema. El clip ha sido dirigido además por otros de los miembros de la banda, Kristofer Steen. El álbum llegará a las tiendas el próximo viernes 18 de octubre a través del sello Spinefarm/Search & Destroy, aunque ya está disponible en preventa. Recordemos que hace algunas semanas Refused ya habían estrenado la canción “Blood Red”.

Se trata este nuevo adelanto de un tema en la línea de los nórdicos, una especie de llamada a las armas con su propio mensaje y una música muy poderosa.

“In 1914 when the blinkered Kaiser kicked off that shitshow WWI the subjects of the Austro Hungarian empire had no idea that the empire had effectively put a gun to its own head. The whole thing was gone in a couple of years. These things happen. ‘Empires rise and empires fall.’ Lots of blinkered Kaisers out there right now, eating their own, their right hands stealing from their left hands, the majority slaving away to make ends meet, infected with the venom of lack, the venom of need, excluded from social insurance, pitted against each other by ignorant ruthless infanticidal curb crawler tyrants, while an apathetic minority bathes in the eternal sunshine of a tilting climate, a doomsday clock wound up by the predatory capitalist insanity of this the most dysfunctional mammal, man.

REV001 is a protest song. A punkrock song. We like to think of it as incredibly violent pop music. Whatever you call it, we’re hoping it’ll get your blood boiling and that it’ll make you wanna dance (like it does our fearless captain @dennislyxzen in the video), ‘cause what else can one do in these desperate times? Well, we at the bottom could arm ourselves and go for those at the top, while smashing a few banks on the way? We’ll get there. Like we said, these things happen all the time. For now, we’ll leave you with these words, from author Ursula K Leguin:

‘We live in capitalism, its power seems inescapable–but then, so did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings.’

REV001 is blessed with the limitless talent of the inimitable Mariam The Believer @mariam_repeatuntildeath and the video was directed by our very own Kristofer Steen (Shot by Adam Nilsson and cut by Johan Söderberg).

WAR MUSIC is out October 18. Stay tuned and see you in the pit.”
