Ahead of their new album Deathwestern next month, SpiritWorld have unleashed the mighty Relic Of Damnation.

The cinematic conclusion to their video trilogy (and released just in time for Halloween), band leader Stu Folsom says of Relic…: “The video is the finale of our DeathWestern trilogy with director Todd Hailstone. Being able to work with my longtime friend, going all the way back to being high school punk rockers, has been incredible.

“He took my vision of gun smoke, gore and heavy metal and worked up three incredible videos. It was probably a little ambitious to do a film trilogy that spreads across two albums, but I think the performances Todd got from Derek and Voki to finish this bad boy off were amazing!”

Meanwhile, of the actual single itself, Stu shares: “Relic Of Damnation has been my favourite riff on the record but was the biggest m’fer to finish. I knew I had a classic that brings back that Metallica, Slayer vibe I love so much, but I never liked the vocals and tried out three or four different rewrites after the demo. The very last night we worked on it, Theresa, Matt and I were fried and about to call it a night when I repurposed a verse from a country song I was writing and put it over the first verse. The vocals were done in one take and is my favourite vocal delivery on the album. I also love the vocals that trade off at the end between Justin Fornof and I. Relic is a banger and has been a staple of our live set since our first show! I’m so excited for people to finally have the studio recording!”

Deathwestern is due out on November 25 via Century Media Records.
