Employed to Serve Unveil Latest Ripper, “The Mistake”


Two out of two MetalSucks co-Editors-in-Chief agree: the new Employed to Serve record, Conquering, is a real winner. Three singles so far, three straight rippers! As our own Axl Rosenberg put it when the band released “Mark of the Grave” in July, “It’s a very satisfying hybrid of Panteric groove, Machine Head-ian deathrash, and Arch Enemy-esque melodeath.”

The latest of those singles, “The Mistake,” arrived last Friday, September 10, and please do not mistake our tardiness on this post for a lack of enthusiasm: song straight slays. All the things Axl said about the previous one apply here.

Guitarist/vocalist Sammy Urwin comments:

“‘The Mistake’ is about letting other people’s opinions of you seep into your subconscious and filling you with self-doubt. In life, you can’t always win over everyone. But don’t let the haters stifle your true potential and stand in between you and your goals.”

That’s advice we could ALL use from time to time. I know I can. Thanks for the pep talk, Sammy!

Listen to “The Mistake” below. The song will appear on Employed to Serve’s new album, Conquering. That comes out September 17 via Spinefarm. Listen to the previous singles, “Exist” and “Mark of the Grave,” and pre-order the album here.
