In a recent interview with France’s Loud TV, ABBATH & lyricist Simon Dancaster discussed the process behind the second studio album, “Outstrider”.
“It’s like taking a safari to the dark side of hell and back again,”
“It’s not how you get there, it’s what you bring back. We live every lyric like it’s our last. The lyrics are a metaphor for the psychological things that me and Olve in our own way are going through, and other people we know. It speaks to the rebel in us all. It’s depicting the shadow demons that we have to confront and understand to be better people. I’ve stopped doing evil for good. Now I’m only good for evil.”
When asked about Immortal, he said:
“In my personal opinion, which is very balanced, IMMORTAL is just a cover band of old Olve,”
“They forgot the apostrophe between the ‘I’ and the ‘M.'”
“As I said to Demonaz and Horgh, that’s my reputation right there. You’re getting them back on the f*cking road. ‘You should go to rehab.’ Rehab is on the road.”
