HATEBREED: Lyric Video For New Song 'Seven Enemies'

The official lyric video for the song "Seven Enemies" from Connecticut-based hardcore/metal masters HATEBREED can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's new album, "The Concrete Confessional", which will be released on May 13 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The follow-up to 2013's "The Divinity Of Purpose" was produced by longtime collaborator Chris "Zeuss" Harris (ROB ZOMBIE, SUICIDE SILENCE, WHITECHAPEL) and mixed by Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, MEGADETH). The artwork was created by Marcelo Vasco (SLAYER).

"Seven Enemies" is a take on the Seven Deadly Sins that have a place in most of the world's religions. "A lot of people gravitate towards their vices and sins and it dooms them," said HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta. "They lead to destructive lifestyle patterns, and then that starts affecting the people around them."

"Seven Enemies" is now available as an instant-grat track when "The Concrete Confessional" is pre-ordered on iTunes.

HATEBREEDJasta, guitarists Wayne Lozinak and Frank Novinec, bassist Chris Beattie and drummer Matt Byrne — has just completed a run of European dates. Starting this Friday, the day the album is released, the band kicks off a 25-date headline tour of North America with DEVILDRIVER (on all dates), DEVIL YOU KNOW and ACT OF DEFIANCE on select dates.

"Seven Enemies" lyrics:

Today is not the fucking day
I sympathize with their pain
Their negative ways
Giving birth to endless cries and complaints
I'm too close, just boiling with rage
I choke on this feeling of war
In my throat every day
Swallowed every bitter pill, now I'm forced to chew
Hearing every vicious word
Their filthy mouths spew
My thoughts descend into the abyss
My heart is begging me to finish this

Today I wish a motherfucker would try
Think of someone other than themselves one time
Today I wish a motherfucker would try
To see this fucked up world through my eyes

Please god don't let me act on these words
And forgive those who choose to test my last nerve
I see red, can't cleanse it away
They took kindness for weakness
Now they answer on this desperate day
Wake up alone, again nothing's changed
Infected my demons, all my visions become deranged
Seven enemies to vanquish one by one
Hatred blisters the surface of my tongue

Today I wish a motherfucker would try
Think of someone other than themselves one time
Today I wish a motherfucker would try
To see this fucked up world through my eyes

Not today
I thought they'd find a better way
Today is not the fucking day [End of lyrics]

Regarding the "The Concrete Confessional" artwork, Jasta said: "I think da Vinci said it best when he said painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen. Marcelo was able to capture a feeling that will accompany our musical and lyrical vision and he put together a striking piece that speaks volumes."
