Distant drops bloodstained, down-tempo/deathcore single/video, “Human Scum”;

13th October 2022 0 By John Deaux

Distant – the multinational down-tempo/deathcore juggernaut from Rotterdam (The Netherlands) and Bratislava (Slovakia) – has launched another standalone single today: “Human Scum”. Currently streaming on all digital platforms, the bloodstained video (directed by the band’s own vocalist, Alan Grnja; produced by Tomas Ferenc & Lukas Ferenc of VLN Production)


Distant comments: “‘Human Scum’ is a deathtrap of a track, with a hooky chorus and an impeccable atmospheric soundscape. The tracks adds on to the never ending evolution to Distant songwriting capabilities and the sound of hellscape.

After Tyrannt’s crucible with his father – Tsukuyomi – he suffered a great defeat. Stranded in this new world in his mortal body, he’s found by his silent worshippers of the Covenant, who work to help Tyrannt’s rebirth into full power again – and, raising his army against the forces of Tsukuyomi to get the ultimate revenge.”
