Los Angeles’ death metal masters ABYSMAL DAWN released a 3D lyric video for the track ‘Coerced Evolution’. The stomping death metal offering is taken from the band’s freshly released album, ‘Phylogenesis’.
The video can be viewed at the official Season of Mist YouTube channel.
ABYSMAL DAWN comment on the video:
“The basic idea behind the lyrics is that some time in the near future, human life on Earth will have become unsustainable. In turn, a certain portion of the population will forcibly have their consciousnesses uploaded to a grid in order to alleviate resources. The same corporations that would have destroyed the Earth, would run these grids and would continue to make a profit on what’s left of humanity in some fashion. The ruling class would continue to live in the real world and make the planet sustainable once again.”
