Melbourne death metal outfit Zeolite have today revealed a crushing new track titled Despised. If you're a fan of heavy as fuck tunes, then this ones for you - it'll knock your socks off!
The track is squarely aimed at religion and the effect it has on society. "Lyrically, we talk about the 'Despised', but from the standpoint that religion despises those with a free mind." says frontman Fraser Manwaring. "For example, the lyrics: "We are the ones you despise" refers to the 'enlightened' whom they view as "the filth from under the dirt".
"The clip takes a slightly different stance of the situation, where we are drawing parallels between religion and cult" adds guitarist Patrick Haas. "Basically if you bring the degrees of separation down to zero, you see they are one and the same. Also, both allow those in positions of power in these institutions to manipulate followers into committing horrible, abhorrent acts, and also to hide behind these institutions to justify and shield their own actions, and motives."
