New metalcore outfit OATH -- not to be confused with the recently defunct German heavy metal band The Oath -- have shared a new music video for "Sorrow Society." The band, which features The World We Knew frontman Frank Fanelli, takes elements of thrash and metalcore to create a sound that is both furious and groovy.
In the video, members of the band go out and abduct a handful of transgressors to bring them before a mysterious society to be "judged." Any kind of court held out in the woods is going to be bad news. In a statement, the band said of the song:
We wrote this song about how when you turn on the TV, or open up a newspaper in America, you’re constantly subjected to a barrage of violence, plague, war, death, and hatred. This is shoved down our throats throughout the media every single day by the people that the public seem to idolize. However, no one is satisfied until they’re able to spew their own opinions on the matter, which ultimately just creates a chain reaction of more conflict and judgement.
