Nov. 18 — Hatebreed front man Jamey Jasta will re-issue his latest solo album, The Lost Chapters Vol. 2 on vinyl next summer.
The announcement was made Thursday in a news release. The document states the vinyl re-issue is expected for release in July, with an exact release date under consideration.
In anticipation of the re-issue, Jasta premiered the lyric video for the album’s latest single, ‘They Want Your Soul’ Thursday. ‘They Want Your Soul’ features a guest appearance by Cannibal Corpse front man George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher.
Jasta talked about Fisher’s appearance on the track during a recent interview with Apple Music.
“I’m doing this melodic sort of metal chorus on this song, so I wanted to get the dynamic of the most brutal vocal in the verses,” said Jasta. “I reached out to George and he hit me right back. When he sent me the tracks, I was freaking out. I felt like a kid; when I booked my first Cannibal Corpse show with George in the band, it was the first tour that he did with them. His voice is just so brutal and has held up – if not gotten better – throughout the years. I was so psyched that he wanted to do it.”
The musical arrangement featured in ‘They Want Your Soul’ incorporates Jasta’s own influences from his work with Hatebreed alongside more melodic metal influences for a composition that is unique from the rest of the album’s entries. The addition of Fisher to the mix adds even more to that unique presentation.
No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the press release announcing the lyric video’s debut. Considering the lyrics provided, it would seem that the song’s lyrical theme centers on the people who would work to tear others down. That would explain the use of footage from the original 1968 take of Night of the Living Dead. Those people are much like zombies who just feast on others, albeit metaphorically in this case as opposed to the literal version in the movie.
The Lost Chapters Vol. 2 was originally released in 2019. The album is available to stream and download here. The album’s track listing is noted below.
