Get the Shot unleash lyric video for "Hellbringer" via Decibel Magazine


Posted 07.06.17
Quebec hardcore metal act Get the Shot has unleashed the lyric video for their newest track "Hellbringer" from their upcoming record Infinite Punishment. Listen to it now at Decibel Magazine!

Says vocalist J-P Legacé of the song,'’'Hellbringer’ was written as a reaction against the rise of the politics of fear and the proliferation of the hateful discourses that legitimate the logic of domination and exclusion in our contemporary societies,” he says. “In a time where voluntary servitude and social indifference seem to be the dominant norm, I believe that the hardcore/metal culture has the duty to reaffirm its role as a social critic and to reiterate its solidarity towards the oppressed, the abused, the persecuted in order to not become the accomplice of the barbarity that afflicts us. And this is what this song is all about: a clear and distinctive call to eradicate all forms of oppression, to question our own propensity to inaction and to set fire to the foundations of a world built on the fear of difference.

"It is the concept of '’sadist nation’ that briefly appears in the song and that was originally brought up by Darkest Hour, a band which has always been a predominant influence for me, that inspired the lyrical theme of ‘Hellbringer’ in the beginning. With the actual rise of far-right politics and the multiplication of the manifestations of intolerance, no other conceptual construction in a metal song has described the decadent state of our contemporary societies better than this idea of ‘sadist nation' and 'Hellbringer' was my humble artistic attempt to formulate a radical cure against that logic of unenlightened hatred which plagues our social fabric."

Infinite Punishment is available for pre-order now at our webstore. The record is released on August 4.
