The Music Video for Refused’s “Economy of Death” Is an Instant Classic

  • Axl Rosenberg

Refused have unveiled another track from their new album, War Music: the particularly militaristic-sounding “Economy of Death.” Take one glance at the lyrics, and you’ll realize the song’s combative vibe is wholly appropriate:

Economy of death dictates the division of east and west
Cold war cultists design an arms race for safe space
The working class is betrayed while capitalists do the bidding
Your occupation becomes that you die for a living

The song arrives in the form of the below music video, which dramatizes these themes so beautifully, I can already tell it’s destined to live on in the pantheon of great metal videos forever. Rarely do we get such dynamic clips these days!

DO NOT MISS the incredible “Economy of Death” music video. War Music comes out October 18. Pre-order it here. Refused begin a tour with Youth Code and Metz in February. Get dates and tickets here.
