Cane Hill have shared “God in the Enemy,” the third and final track of their Krewe De La Mort Volume 1 project.
“God is the Enemy” packs in all of the ghoulish aggression, distorted riffs and earth-shattering drums fans have come to expect from the Louisiana band. The accompanying music video features a performance bathed in red light alongside unsettling images of band members covered in blood and chained to church pews. Squeamish viewers, be warned.
“‘God is the Enemy’ is an honest comment on contemporary Christians & their skewed views of living Christ-like,” vocalist Elijah Witt explained in a statement. “From the hypocrisy of the church shielding its abusive history (and their present), to the blatant racism & control of women’s bodily autonomy using the bible as a scapegoat—it’s obvious that the followers of Christ have gone astray. ‘GITE’ implores you to imagine how the religious world would react if someone claimed to be the son of God again.”
Cane Hill’s three-track EP Krewe De La Mort Volume 1 also includes “Power of the High” and “Kill Me,” released in late October and December last year, respectively. Their sophomore album Too Far Gone arrived in 2018 on Rise Records.
