Five-piece metalcore band The Art of Deception has revealed their heaviest single to date, “Infernal Wasteland”, along with its dark and harrowing music video.
“Infernal Wasteland” is a hellish story of an advanced alien invasion destroying Earth, narrated in the first person by a man as he watches the world crumble to pieces. The single begins with a haunting, clean guitar riff that explodes with Nolan Mateer’s grisly vocals backed with primitive drums, birthed from a planet under attack. This song truly sounds like a total carnage soundtrack.
“The backstory of ‘Infernal Wasteland’ comes from humanity’s nightmare: an advanced alien invasion that destroys us all. Amidst the blaze of carnage, the narrator witnesses the alien’s disregard for human life. While it is based around a specific storyline, ‘Infernal Wasteland’ can also be interpreted as dealing with one’s own personal hell or struggles.”
