Mike Patton et sa joyeux troupe de folies capillaires de Mr Bungle ont sorti un live enregistré l’année dernière en pleine pandémie « The Night They Came Home (Live) ». Et pour la peine, le groupe a partagé une vidéo de « Eracist » de ce live filmé ET BORDEL, QUE C’EST BON !
“‘Eracist‘ is a unique song in the ‘Raging Wrath‘ book. There was no initial demo, only a ‘moshy’ riff that [Mike] Patton had come up with in the ’80s, that somehow Trey [Spruance] remembered. Once that was unearthed Patton completed the tune with a double-time bridge and some lyrics about erasure and denial.
It seems to me that it somehow feels contemporary while fitting in with our teenage songwriting style. I guess that’s because it was written over a span of 35 years! You may notice that it’s one of the only songs on the ‘demo’ that actually has a vocal melody. Back in the ’80s we were mostly thinking about drums and guitar, which of course, is really all that metal is about.” — Trevor Dunn
