From The Press Release
Today, German thrash institution Godslave reveal the new video “From Driven.” The track is the third to be revealed from the band’s highly anticipated sixth album, Positive Aggressive, set for international release on July 23rd via Metalville Records.
Says the band about the video: “Do you know this? You feel like you are driven by an invisible force, everything is on autopilot, everything happens somehow without you really having any influence on it? This is exactly the state that ‘From Driven’ is supposed to force you out of! The third single from the new Godslave album, Positive Aggressive, is all about switching from the back seat to the driver’s seat, gripping the steering wheel tightly, and consciously steering in the direction you want to go! It’s about getting back into control of your own actions and also being willing to do what is necessary to do so. Because taking control also means taking responsibility for your own actions – that’s a tough nut to crack, and not for everyone. The protagonist in the ‘From Driven’ video is fully in control and does exactly what he enjoys most, regardless of whether someone might call him crazy for it. He is fully with himself and enjoys life. And that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?”
See & hear Godslave‘s brand-new video “From Driven” 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.
