News: Gama Bomb Drop New Single and Video ‘Rusted Gold’

Irish thrashers Gama Bomb have dropped a new single and video for the track “Rusted Gold” from forthcoming album BATS. Gama Bomb’s brand new rager drops November 10 via Prosthetic Records. The video for “Rusted Gold” was directed by Kiran Acharya, featuring the band playing live at Hellfest, Pitfest, and Japanese Assault Fest.

Vocalist Philly Byrne comments:

“Rusted Gold is a Thin Lizzy-style metal epic—It’s a Western, too, which I think Philip Lynott would approve of. I’m fascinated by the role of Irish people in the American frontier times: Their story is sometimes overlooked, or reduced to a caricature. So this song is about an Irish cowboy, a refugee from the famine, who’s out for revenge on all the people who treated him as a second-class citizen. When you see how Irish people and culture were treated during the Brexit referendum, I think this is still a relevant story.”

BATS is the first Gama Bomb album to be entirely produced, mixed, and mastered by guitarist Domo Dixon, utilizing the remote recording skills picked up during various lockdowns over the past few years.

Speaking about the album’s artwork, guitarist John Roche comments:

“The accompanying artwork and inlay by the lovely Rory McGuigan are based on 1960s exploitation movies in the vein of Russ Meyer and other directors who didn’t want to put their name on their films.”

BATS also features guest appearances by Irish musician Gavin Kerins and hip hop pioneer The Egyptian Lover who raps on the track “Egyptron.”
