What would happen if Refused and Kvelertak had a raunchy, scorching one night stand after drinking one too many at the diviest of dive bars? You’d get a bastard love child named Barren Womb. This Norwegian group’s new album The sun’s not yellow, it’s chicken is a product of massive sounding hardcore injected with unapologetic, in-your-face rock. Making that even more impressive is the fact that Barren Womb consists of only two members.
And that’s why we’re excited to premiere a new song off of The sun’s not yellow, it’s chicken just a few days before its release. Barren Womb’s Tony Gonzahl had the following to share about the meaning behind the song “Evil Prevails”:
“The soothing breeze of a lazy summer day. A newborn baby sleeping safely in its mother’s arms. A moment of creativity. A glimpse of greatness. Compassion. Freedom. Love. The human condition can truly be a thing of beauty. Most of the time though, evil prevails.
This song deals with the dangers of trading values and beliefs into currency, be it money, power or any other superficial bullshit. Selling out, basically.”
