With the heavy grooves and catchy riffs, it should even grab the attention of new fans who have yet to experience the onslaught that is Snake Mountain

Directed by the band’s visual collaborator Kyle Watson from Counterfeit Films, the video for Everliving features the band members being abducted and experimented on by extraterrestrial invaders with sinister intentions.

Everliving is a dark and heavy groove-driven song that takes inspiration from one of the most terrifying characters in animation history, the mummified demon priest known as Mumm-Ra the Everliving from Thundercats.

“When I was young, one of the most horrifying things to me was the Mumm-Ra transformation scene in Thundercats, for an animated show about anthropomorphic heroes geared towards kids you had this very dark and demonic scene in every episode that has forever been burned into my generation’s mind. I’ve always been fascinated by the character and the pure evil he was consumed and driven by, he was the stuff of nightmares”, vocalist Nev Pearce explains of the nightmare that inspires the lyrics. 

The song was tracked by drummer Kristian Rousell and guitarist Jaymes Jackson (who also took on mixing duties) at the band’s studio, and mastered by Paul Blakey from 12th and Vine Post.

Everliving is the first single from their upcoming EP Villainous Part 1: Reverence and a glimpse at a larger project on the horizon that pays respect to the band’s past whilst preparing for the next evolutionary step in their musical journey.
