NEWS: Carrion Vael continue to obsesse?
Indiana Melodic Death Metal act Carrion Vael continue to drop lyric videos that underline how pungent their critically acclaimed Unique Leader Records releasing album “Abhorrent Obsessions” really is while offering up some additional insights into… their thinking. The latest of them is “Wings Of Deliverance“, which paints quite the picture.
The band comment: “Dust off your finest church clothes and spend a little time with our hometown’s most famous preacher this Sunday morning! ‘Wings of Deliverance’ is a look into the mind and crimes of Jim Jones, who famously led 909 members of his cult to their deaths by force and Flavor-Aid”
Vocalist Travis Purcell adds: “We wrote this song about cult leader and mass murderer Jim Jones. Jones, who is from our hometown of Richmond Indiana, led a cult of more than 900 people to their deaths while living in Jonestown, a remote settlement located in Guyana. Jones laced the grape drink flavor aid with cyanide, and then convinced or forced his cult members to drink the substance on November 18, 1978, before putting a gun to his head and pulling the trigger. “Wings of deliverance” was the name of one his first churches in Indiana, it was partially funded and members were recruited by selling monkeys door to door in the Indianapolis area”
