Italian thrashers ENEMYNSIDE have released their new music video ‘Frozen Prison Cell’, the first single off their forthcoming album “Chaos Machine” due out October 25th via Rockshots Records.
“This track is about Soviet gulags, something I’ve been fascinated by reading books about labour camps in the Soviet Union. Francesco wrote the music and chose this lyrics, which fits perfectly with the atmosphere of the song. In the video you can see a prisoner trying to escape from the labor camp, but the prison he gets himself into is the boundless frozen land of Siberia.” says guitarist Matteo Bellezza.
Active since 1994 as Scapegoat, in 1999 the band changed its name to ENEMYNSIDE. During their career, the band have toured Italy and Europe sharing the stage with bands such as Destruction, Dismember, Blaze Bayley, Paul Di Anno, Necrodeath, Extrema, Kiko Loureiro, Flotsam And Jetsam and many more.
The band’s anticipated 2019 full length album “Chaos Machine” features ten aggressive and relentless thrash tracks focusing on the sentiment of being trapped (both physically and metaphorically) by the world’s social injustices, control systems such as religious institutions and political authorities, totalitarianism and dictatorships.
The album follows the band’s catalog of EPs and albums “Dead Nation Army” (2016), “Whatever Comes” (2012) (Mighty Music/Target Distribution), “In The Middle of Nowhere” first released in 2007 on Sleazy Rider Records and re-released in 2008 through Hatestone Records/New Model and “Let The Madness Begin…” (2003) (Temple Of Noise/Frontiers Records).
