SPADES AND BLADES – More “Blood of The Innocent” Deluxe Details


TMD
TMD

SPADES AND BLADES – off TMD’s lethal promo roster – have announced new song titles and themes for “Blood of the Innocent – Deluxe Edition”. The bands front man and lyricist Jason Todd describes the songs by saying: “We continued with the theme of sin to complete the albums concept. The single “Wrath” is by far the most violent sounding song we have yet. I wanted to take the role of a character who was consumed by hate for another person and seeking Wrath and Revenge on them. The other song “Gluttony” has a faster thrash/punk feel to it and is about individual and global destruction by man’s lust for consumption. We’re excited to get the songs out there and let people hear what we’ve been working on since we released the album last September. We’ll know the release date soon…”
