NEWS: Desolated return with “Victim” and D Bloc!

It’s been a long time coming but it looks like 2024 will finally see a new album from Desolated, five years after their return with EP “A New Realm of Misery“. The Metallic Hardcore veterans reformed after a three year hiatus in 2019 and now feature Charlie Thorpe of Malevolence on drums, Tony Evans of Idle Hands on bass and Les Law of Bun Dem Out and Fifty Calibre on guitar, offering “Victim” as evidence of punishment to come. For the new cut they are joined by D Bloc vocalist Camden Good who added a verse to a cut which was already ready to go…

On the new single, the band comment: “‘Victim’ is a song grounded in reality from personal experience. It addresses the certain behaviour of that character we have all encountered one too many times in life. ‘Victim’ serves as an outburst of the frustration caused in reaching out to help someone and your hand is repeatedly slapped away. It’s a call out to those individuals who thrive from wallowing in self-pity, blaming the world instead of their own destructive prophecy that put them there in the first place. Sometimes bridges must burn to find peace. We’ve all had people around us that just take and take – they drain the life out of you to feed their own relentless misery no matter how much you offer. This one goes out to them. The music video for this single has even been filmed and edited solely by Richy [Unsworth, guitars] himself.”
