From The Press Release
Today, German thrash institution Godslave reveal the new video “Straight Fire Zone.” The track is the second to be revealed from the band’s highly anticipated sixth album, Positive Aggressive, set for international release on July 23rd via Metalville Records.
“Straight Fire Zone” delivers a real headbanger, and that’s exactly what the song is meant to do, says the band: “Dust off the neck, remove rust, loosen tendons, and let the blood flow again through your muscles – get ready for the concerts and festivals that will soon come again! And even if it takes a while, the ‘Straight Fire Zone’ is this one place in your heart, accessible to all – even if we don’t have the opportunity to get together in a concert hall, the feeling of togetherness we always carry within us, no matter where we are! Where, how, and with how many, be it in person or only in the heart, when we enter the ‘Straight Fire Zone,’ only one thing counts – exclusively THAT which does us good in this moment, everything else remains outside. We allow ourselves this time, because we all deserve it!”
See & hear Godslave‘s brand-new video “Straight Fire Zone” in its entirety HERE at the band’s official YouTube channel.
Positive Aggressive is an album with a clear concept and a perfect symbiosis of music and message: catchy melodies and thrashing thrash metal on the one hand and inspiring lyrics that let you look deep into your soul on the other. One thing is clear: no thrash metal without aggression!
But Godslave ask the listener the all-important question: what do you do with the energy released by the aggression? Do you just want to destroy everything out of anger, or do you also want to build something new?
Godslave have made this decision: From opener “How About NO?” to closer “Final Chapters First,” every single song is a vehement statement for getting yourself in control.
Lyricist Bernie deliberately talks openly about his inner struggles – not only to cope with situations himself, but also to encourage others to take their fate into their own hands. Because no one will do it for you: It’s your life; it’s your decision!
On Positive Aggressive, Godslave have revived old traditions and, in a time when real contacts are hardly possible, remembered the relationships with the people on the road who became part of the family from one moment to the next.
So the fans can look forward to two guest contributions in particular: On the one hand, Britta Görtz from Critical Mess has contributed distinctive backing vocals on “How about NO?” In addition, the guest solo by Damir Eskic closes the circle of a friendship with Destruction that has already lasted 10 years.
