Lyrically, the first single from the sixth album by thrash metal band ERADICATOR describes the processes of industrial animal fattening and slaughter. The mechanically monotonous and deadly efficiency of a slaughterhouse inspired Henry Ford to produce his cars on assembly lines. The paradox here is that the godfather of the “assembly line” is animal slaughter. Although the processes of meat production are sufficiently documented, consumers can still ignore the largely cruel facts through selective perception. The text has no claim to moral authority, but rather a descriptive character. Everyone can and may draw their own conclusions from what is being sung about.

Musically, the song has a lot to offer.The opening drum solo begins with around 200 beats per minute, followed by fast, precise guitar riffs.A driving groove sets in with the verse, which encourages headbanging and is carried by the cutting shouting.The tempo picks up again in the chorus and the rudimentary melody quickly becomes catchy.Seba Stöber’s deep growls at the end of the chorus form the first peaks in the song. However, when you expect things to pick up after chorus two, ERADICATOR go one better. Death metal-inspired growls, supported by discordant chord progressions and driven by relentless double bass attacks take the paradox to its absolute peak and form the acoustic image of the described cruelty. Only then is the listener allowed to relax. The middle section reveals calm tones, introduced by an almost clean bass run, and leads into a creamy, singing guitar solo. The subsequent build-up leads back to the chorus and a final ecstasy in the repetitive death-metal-inspired C section.

The single cover was penned by Bianca Rother and shows a grizzly skull with antelope antlers in front of an industrial skyline on a mountain of bones. The single, as well as the entire album, was mixed/mastered by Sebastian “Seeb” Levermann (Orden Ogan, Asphyx, Brainstorm) and produced together with Seba Stöber.

“The Paradox” is undoubtedly the most versatile album by thrashers ERADICATOR. It will be released in the year of the band’s 20th anniversary. The ten new songs deal lyrically with the contradictory nature of being human and present many musical facets, not only of thrash metal. 

“The Paradox” bears the signature of ERADICATOR and shows their unbroken joy of playing. The band has now also made a name for itself live. However, the four guys from the Sauerland region in Western Germany are not afraid to refine and develop their new compositions stylistically. 

The lyrical themes on “The Paradox” reflect the dichotomy and ambivalence of human action and thought. 

Like its predecessor, the album was mixed and mastered by Sebastian “Seeb” Levermann (Orden Ogan, Asphyx, Brainstorm), who once again managed to give ERADICATOR an authentic sound. After 20 years, the four musicians know what they want to sound like and that’s exactly what “The Paradox” sounds like.
