ACxDC release new single, ‘Gorged’

Los Angeles-based powerviolence four piece, ACxDC have today released a new track from their upcoming album, Satan Is KingGorged is the latest slice of audio aggression to be unleashed from their new LP, and it can be streamed on all digital platforms – including Bandcamp – immediately. Satan Is King is available to pre-order HERE

Of their latest single, vocalist Sergio Amalfitano comments: 
“This song is about gluttony and a callous lack of empathy for living creatures that inhabit the earth along with us. Destroying billions of lives (non human and human alike) and by extension the earth for the sake of taste buds and traditions seems to me to be the most egomaniacal thing we can do. It’s a simple choice we make every time we eat.”

For a band whose full moniker is Antichrist Demoncore, it may come as no surprise that Satan is given their dues on this record. However, Satan serves as a motif – for rebellion, for self discovery, for rejecting authority – rather than as a literal figure of praise. With a tongue in cheek title that serves as a response to Kanye West’s Jesus Is King album, Satan Is King is the antidote to excess, greed and mindless indulgence.

Their message – like their music – retains a distinctly D.I.Y attitude. As always, the band is politically charged, distributing sonically raw dispatches at break-neck speed. A true seam of revolution runs through the lyrics on Satan Is King, imploring the need for immediate and drastic action to save the planet – and ourselves. Railing against corporations, pushing back against institutions that oppress, and challenging the concept of critical thought in the face of society that rewards greed and champions homogenous thinking – all form threads in the fabric of Satan Is King.

ACxDC returned to producer Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues), who recorded and mixed Satan Is King at The Pit Recording Studio, Van Nuys, CA in November 2019; Brad Boatright later mastered the album at Audiosiege. The resulting 15-part manifesto of fury is a visceral open sore of aggression. Embracing grindcore, powerviolence and more, ACxDC funnel multiple genres through their unique lens. Fans of Gulch, Nasum and Minor Threat will have plenty to immerse themselves in with Satan Is King. Cover art by Dylan Garret Smith is the cherry atop this barb-wire laced cake.
