British metal up-and-comers Heriot have shared a new song called ‘Recreant’, the video for which recently premiered via Knotfest.
Here’s what the band had to say of the track.
“‘Recreant’ reflects on the ever-growing abuse of power in today’s world. With governments, politicians, and influencers wrongfully using religion, nationalism, and wealth to divide communities, class and race.
In this release, we’ve tried to hone in on some of our darker influences to best suit the lyrical content in this song. As a band we’ve delved deeper into our doom and sludge roots. This track allowed for a lot more experimentation into the use of textures and industrial elements to embellish the intensity of our sound.
This track touches on the contrast between the privileged and deprived and how the system is carefully manipulated to cater for the wealthy, even showing encouragement for minority groups of people to subconsciously vilify themselves.”
