Belfast Progressive Metal force, Lock Horns have revealed a new video single for ‘The Origin Of Evil Impulses’ – the third single to from the bands stunning new album, ‘Red Room’, which saw it’s official release on Friday, May 31st!

Following a series of crushing previews of the new album by way of ‘The Golden Mean‘ and ‘Skin and Bones‘, Lock Horns have released an official video that captures the bands behind the scenes during the making of ‘Red Room‘.

Speaking of the new single, the band says; “This track is our opus magnum, a 7-minute technical nightmare. It’s the most savage track from Red Room…..the best song we’ve ever written.’The Origin of Evil Impulses’ lyrical content is inspired by a short story from Egar Alan Po, titled; ‘The Imp of the Perverse’, and is similar to the other tracks on the album which explores certain human attributes such as lack of self control, self sabotage, and specifically, with this song in particular, self perversion.”

Boasting seven ruthlessly aggressive progressive metal tracks, ‘Red Room’ is the follow-up to 2018’s ‘Molon Labe‘ opus, and out now, via The Distortion Project and Code 7 Distribution. Order your copy here.
