Dec. 2 — Independent rock act Ego Kill Talent debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band premiered the lyric video for its new single, ‘Thousand Nails’ Thursday through the Space Zebra Twitch channel. The song features a guest appearance by System of a Down’s John Dolmayan. The video features the song’s lyrics placed over images of the single’s art, which is that of a group of hooded figures. The figures in question have faces made up of unique designs rather than faces. Equally interesting symbols adorn the tops of the robes that they wear.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Thousand Nails’ is unique in itself. It blends elements of math metal with some metalcore and some aggro-rock. It is a composition that is difficult to pigeonhole into one specific rock subgenre, which is a very good thing.
The lyrical theme that accompanies the song’s musical arrangement is a commentary about the negative impacts of our own egos, according to a prepared statement that the band released about the song.
“‘Thousand Nails’ is about how much we let ourselves be carried away by our pride — to the point of destroying wonderful works that we built together because we do not consider letting go,” the statement reads.
‘Thousand Nails’ is just the latest single that Ego Kill Talent has released. The band — Jonathan Dörr [vocals], Jean Dolabella [drums, guitar], Raphael Miranda [drums, bass], Niper Boaventura [guitar, bass], and Theo Van Der Loo [bass, guitar] — has also released the singles, ‘Now!,’ ‘The Call,’ ‘Lifeporn,’ and ‘Deliverance.’
