Exclusive Lyric Video Premiere: “Ambivalence” by Neck of the Woods

Exclusive Lyric Video Premiere: “Ambivalence” by Neck of the Woods

Excuse us for making the obvious observation, but it readily applies: you should feel no ambivalence about checking out Neck of the Woods‘ “Ambivalence.” The unrelentingly vicious new single from the Vancouver progressive extreme metal quintet’s sophomore full-length, The Annex of Ire, is very much like the snarling beasts that adorn the album’s cover. Listen to it, and you can practically smell a predator’s hot, stinking breath, practically feel its teeth as they dig into your flesh, perceive the sensation of your blood co-mingling with its saliva. Can you escape its jaws? Nope. Too late. You’re lunch.

Says vocalist Jeff Radomsky of the track:

“The feeling of ambivalence is something we deal with every day of our lives. Be it a small lingering of uncertainty or a relentless mental battle that derails your life we all experience it. This song focuses on my own indecision to exact revenge on someone who wronged me, repeating a mantra I don’t honestly believe in but felt strongly in the moment. Fuck the high road was cathartic thing to write though its not a path I feel many should follow.”

MetalSucks is stoked to debut the official lyric video for “Ambivalence,” which you can check out below! The Annex of Ire is out now on Pelagic Records. You can purchase it here (North America), here (Europeans), here (Australians), or here (digital)!
