Norwich-based band Apollo Stands have released a new single titled “Shitty Zombies“, a somewhat provocative name for a somewhat provocative song. Sadly, this song isn’t a reference to the shambling, moaning, living undead of the classic horror movies we know and love. This is about the brain-dead zombies that run the world, otherwise known as ‘politicians’. It’s not about the virus infecting one person; it’s about them trying to infect the entire planet.
They have a mix of styles in the track, primarily metalcore and old school heavy metal, it’s a short but very aggressive listen, and you can sum up the feel of the song with the line: “They feast on the poor and the vulnerable; they attack the ones who stand against them”.
With a song that hearkens to the anti-establishment punk bands that came out of the counterculture of the 60’s and 70’s, but with a modern metalcore twist, Apollo Stands came with a strong political point to make, and they made it and then some with this musical mischief.
The single is available now via One Eyed Toad Records.
