DISTANT drops bloodstained, down-tempo/deathcore single/video “Human Scum”

Set to kick off European tour later this month with Decapitated, Despised Icon, Oceano, Viscera


DISTANT – the multinational down-tempo/deathcore juggernaut from Rotterdam (The Netherlands) and Bratislava (Slovakia) – has launched another standalone single today: “Human Scum“. Currently streaming on all digital platforms, the bloodstained video (directed by the band’s own vocalist, Alan Grnja; produced by Tomas Ferenc & Lukas Ferenc of VLN Production) for the track can be viewed here:

DISTANT comments: “‘Human Scum’ is a deathtrap of a track, with a hooky chorus and an impeccable atmospheric soundscape. The tracks adds on to the never ending evolution to DISTANT songwriting capabilities and the sound of hellscape.
After Tyrannt’s crucible with his father – Tsukuyomi – he suffered a great defeat. Stranded in this new world in his mortal body, he’s found by his silent worshippers of the Covenant, who work to help Tyrannt’s rebirth into full power again – and, raising his army against the forces of Tsukuyomi to get the ultimate revenge.”
