Philly thrashers Eyes of the Living have dropped their latest doomy dirge “Destroy Everything,” taken from their upcoming sophomore album, Fear Comes Knocking, out February 25 through Blood Blast Distribution.
Watch the lyric video for “Destroy Everything” below:
Fear Comes Knocking is a brutal, ten-track onslaught of unrelenting devil-horn fury that is sure to be an immediate, thrash-induced, head-banging classic.
Capturing the respect of the gritty Philadelphia metal scene since 2016, Eyes of the Living— Tim Swisher (vocals/rhythm guitar), Chris Moore (bass/backing vocals), Mike Straiton (lead guitar) and Cliff Fritts (drums)—have continually expanded their reach, sharing the stage with the likes of Gojira, Exodus, Misery Index and more.
Setting their sights on worldwide metal domination in 2022, the quartet put the finishing touches on their second album in 2021, with a master plan to overthrow the metal community at large. With their penchant for horror and all things evil, Fear Comes Knocking confirms Eyes of the Living are gassed up and are firing on all cylinders.
On the album’s forthcoming release, Swisher states:
“As much as we may not intentionally want it to, I feel the writing process became influenced by the current times and state of things, evident in the album’s title track and first single, ‘Fear Comes Knocking.’
This album feels a bit heavier, maybe even darker in sound and mood on some tracks. The lyrical content touches on subjects of fear, anger, betrayal, religion and overcoming certain emotions. It continues to expand in the direction we are headed in musically, without deviating too much from our roots in thrash metal.”
