French power trio LIZZARD today unveils their brand new video for "The Decline." The track comes by way of the band's new full-length, Eroded, set for release next month via Pelagic Records.
If color could communicate premonitions of feelings and introspective mental states, then the album cover of LIZZARD's Eroded would be an adequate synopsis of the current state of the world: the ochre, brown, and green feel tired, worn, drained, eroded... but the bright yellow and orange and the central white parts insinuate a statement of hope, and in that the album art couldn't be a more adequate representation of LIZZARD's music: a melting pot of invigorating riffs, heavy driven groove, and catchy vocal lines. In early 2021, Eroded comes as a strong, hopeful voice expressing the suppressed yearning for an end of this madness which we all carry inside.
LIZZARD's songwriting is often distinguished by intricate rhythmical patterns, but these are always woven into the fabric of immensely catchy song constructs. The technical prowess here is well concealed behind the glaring allure of the immediacy of raw, in your face rock music. In many ways, Eroded is a trip back to the best parts of the '90s, but in the sound of 2020.
Notes the band of "The Decline," "'The Decline' always had an instantaneous emotional impact to us. The contrast between the cynical verses and the beautiful evidence of its chorus perfectly defines the behavior of human beings in relation to their surroundings."
