Japanese metal juggernauts Crossfaith have shared a new music video for their track ‘Destroy’. The track, which is lifted from the group’s recently released album EX_MACHINA, features a cameo from Japanese industrial hip hoppers Ho99o9, and is a blistering and fast-paced track with an energetic live video to boot.
On the new video, lead singer Kenta Koie shares: “This was made from footage of our new series of tour called ‘NITROPOLIS’, which happened in late August with lots of unique artists like Ho99o9, Ocean Grove, ANARCHY and more. We don’t want to talk about genre anymore, but just see what’s happening on the floor. We made the bomb with Ho99o9! Rage it out!”
EX_MACHINA, the new album from Crossfaith, is a concept album set in an alternative near future in which the ruling class, known as Angels, maintain their world through artificial intelligence and other technology, which dehumanises people and effectively turns them into drones – as explained in the opening title track, “Deus Ex Machina.”
EX_MACHINA is a relentless album that strives for the listener’s attention, and is unquestionably the heaviest that Crossfaith have put their name to since forming in their native Osaka in 2006.
Since their inception, Crossfaith have been on the edge of a fusion of rock, metal, electronica and big ideas on their albums; and the edge of euphoria with their live shows. EX_MACHINA is the album on which they walk that fine, fiery line more skillfully and seismically than ever.
