Denver deathgrinders Vermin Womb (who are fronted by Primitive Man's Ethan McCarthy) recently released their killer new LP Retaliation on Closed Casket Activities, and now we're premiering the video for "Boiled World." It's made up of static-y, multi-color, VHS-era-looking footage that's just as whiplash-inducing as the song itself. The band says:

The lyrics behind "Boiled World" are at their core about the rising temperature of life on the earth not only from global warming but the clear rise in authoritarianism and the whisperings of a new American civil war. Add on the threat of global nuclear warfare, supply chain issues, water and resource wars, environmental catastrophes, corporations' continual assault on the earth via pollution for the sake of industry. The rich and powerful are poorly running AND raping the only earth we have left to death and are going to leave us with its disgusting, bloated, and polluted corpse. The common person is nothing but a wounded beast in the field surrounded by their own problems that will eventually be overtaken by the greater problems of the world at large. This is the palette. Now imagine human eyes widening at unstoppable and once unfathomable ruin/chaos. The urge to help your fellow man is non-existent because it is not an option anymore. "Fellow man" isn't even a thing. Humanity is a dead animal on a barren rock.
