It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Vision of Disorder – 11 years, to be exact. Yet their forthcoming album, The Cursed Remain Cursed picks up right where they left off. “Set To Fail” might not be the most original song title in the world, but what it lacks in originality, it makes up for in intensity. The video premiered earlier today courtesy of the fine folks at Metal Injection.
Here’s the band’s take on the song:
Guitarist Matt Baumbach: “’Set To Fail’ is a song that was literally finished the day before we went into the studio. [Mike] Kennedy showed up with this insane riff and it all came together very fast. This record is crazy in that some songs took three years and others took three days. It’s by far one of our strongest tracks ever in my opinion and its gonna be insane live.”
Vocalist Tim Williams: “Set To Fail” was the last song to come together for The Cursed Remain Cursed writing sessions. When the track was played back over the studio speakers it was clear from the first thirty seconds we had a monster on our hands. The track represented everything VOD was, is and will be. All the elements and chaos VOD has to offer is within the track. When our friend Kirk Farrington approached us for a video shoot there was no doubt in our minds that this song would be it. Lyrically, the utmost honest and venomous track on the record, coming from a journey through the several levels of a personal hell so deep, that even the sun could cast no shadows.”
The Cursed Remain Cursed will be out on September 18 on Candlelight.
