Songs stream: Godhunter – “Like Glass Under Black Fingernails” & “A Dread Of Some Strange Impending Doom”

Godhunter has premiered their song “Like Glass Under Black Fingernails” off their upcoming Codex Narco EP. The song premiered through Decibel and is available for streaming exclusively via the esteemed publication’s site. Guitarist/vocalist David Rogers said of the album:

“We have never been a band that shies away from social issues, but on Codex Narco we’ve added more layers of personal strife than ever before. On the surface this song is about a very real subject, the ant-walking alligators of Hiroshima. You can Google that if you want to be even more terrified about the prospect of nuclear war that our current President seems to be driving us towards.

But this is also a metaphor about our personal lives constantly being assaulted by things like social media and overexposure. We’re burning ourselves alive. To get this feeling across in the song, we recruited our longtime friend Thorne to lay down these vocals. We needed someone that understands how we feel and has a voice that can covet that emotion and we couldn’t think of a better person than him. Clay from Mountaineer plays guitar on this and Adam from Demon Lung plays bass on this song as well, making it the most collaborative effort on the album.”

Another track, the opening number “A Dread Of Some Strange Impending Doom”, is also streaming; that one is embedded below. Codex Narco EP is scheduled for release on May 19th through Battleground Records (digital) and Baby Tooth Records (cassette). Pre-orders are available through the Bandcamp player.
