This new track by Ohhms ‘The Magician’ is taken from the band’s new album ‘The Fool’ out 31 March on Holy Roar Records. You can buy ‘The Fool’ here.
Speaking about ‘The Magician’, a spokesperson for the band said:
We have tackled the subject of GMOs contaminating the food we eat on our debut EP in the song ‘Bad Seeds’, which highlighted corporate greed and the huge amounts of cash that can be saved by cutting corners. I was shocked that the information was out there in the public domain, and yet we just ignore it and continue to eat poisons day after day.
I started reading university papers on the subject, and one that really affected me was a whistleblower type book named ’Seeds of Deception’ by Jeffrey M. Smith. It wasn’t full of technical jargon and I read it in one long and harrowing sitting. I wrote the lyrics for ‘The Magician’ the very next day. I have to admit, it was an utterly inspiring read.
Musically, it was the first ‘fast’ song that we had ever written, although in reality its pretty much mid-paced and even though it lasts a little over eight minutes in total, I only managed to fit in one verse, one middle eight and a killer chorus at the end. It’s all it needed. It’s disgusting and angry enough, so any more riffs or anymore vocals would have been sensory overload.”
