Slay For Me is the new single from Australia’s Industrial Titans – Our Last Enemy from the as yet unnamed/unannounced follow-up to 2022’s ‘As Above So Below’ which had rave 10/10 reviews and hit 26 on the Aria independent charts. Produced by two-time ARIA nominee DW Norton and with the legendary John Sankey (Fear Factory, Divine Heresy) on drums, Slay For Me presents the start of the next chapter of the direct follow-up to AASB.
Slay For Me represents the down-and-dirty grind of the band’s methodical industrial riffs and synth embellishments with a big singalong chorus primed for the live arena. Thematically the song tackles the misguided ‘thoughts and prayers’ sentimentality of the modern age and challenges it with a call to action battle cry – rather than ineffective thoughts and offhand placation, strike action!
The single is accompanied by a mind-bending film clip equal parts Mad Max apocalyptic road trip and a David Lynch fever dream, complete with throwbacks (in the form of a guest appearance character) to their first clip ‘10,000 Headless Horses’ for the eagle-eyed viewer. The clip is shot by the same crew that helmed that video as well, ‘vintage HD’ pioneers The Blackley Brothers of Her Name Is Murder Productions (Sepultura, Thy Art Is Murder, Norma Jean, Alpha Wolf, Ocean Grove)
