New Haven, CT’s metal titans DEAD BY WEDNESDAY have released “The Surgeon”, the new video directed by Jacques Molle' from their guest vocalist album THE DARKEST OF ANGELS, via the EMP LABEL GROUP Facebook page, which can be viewed here.
“The Surgeon”, an emotionally-charged acoustic track with unexpected flamenco flair courtesy of Soulfly/Cavalera guitarist Marc Rizzo, has the distinction of being the only track on the album to feature the band’s current full-time vocalist Rob Roy, as well as Rizzo, who was announced earlier this Summer had also joined the band as a full time member.
“The Surgeon” comes in on a lighter note, while the band’s previous single “Live Again” featuring Shadow’s Fall vocalist Brian Fair, is still a monster at Metal radio, debuting on the CMJ Loud Rock charts and getting added to rotation on playlists including SIRIUS XM Liquid Metal, and Full Metal Jackie.
Says Drummer Christian “Opus” Lawrence, “We know we’ll probably take some shit from the “Metal” guys for this track, especially while “Live Again” is still going, and most of the stuff that has been put out from this record so far has been heavier. But it’s such a powerful song, especially right in the middle of so many great brutally heavy tracks. The album really is all over the place, but “The Surgeon” is so powerful and real, and is not only a really amazing showcase of what Rob can do, but also shows a whole other side of the band. We can do heavy. But, yeah, we can do this, too.”
