Singled Out: Perzonal War
"Incarnation" is a song from our new album Captive Breeding. Listening to the number makes obvious that the song is influenced by the bay area bands from the 80΄s. It is not completely old-school but it has enough elements that let see the roots of "old" trash metal! Slow and groovy beginning, wild and chaotic ending.
Although we have a trash scene in Germany with bands like Kreator, Sodom or Destruction our main influences have been the great bay area bands. Not only the big ones; also great music from Forbidden, Death Angel or Testament.
When I think of the lyrics of "Incarnation" I have to mention the X-files. For I am a great fan of Scully and Moulder it was obvious to write about this topic sooner or later. In our case it was later 16 years of Perzonal War, 7th album =)!
Two years ago I bought (after a break of years) the first DVD season after the first season was over the next had to be bought until I had all of them. It is still great stuff and I really like the America of the 90΄s that can be seen in the movies. It might sound strange but for us in Germany it is really exotic. I really like the shape of the cars, the houses and the whole look and atmosphere of this period. It reminds me of the days when I was a teen hahahaha.
So the whole song deals with conspiracies, mysteries, unanswered questions, etc. I think Megadeth had kind of the same thing in mind when they wrote Hanger 18.
Regarding the Perzonal War songs in general most of them deal with lyrics that are inspired by "real life". So "Incarnation" is a bit different from the rest and you hopefully enjoy it. Check it out and stay METAL!
