Berlin noise/hard rock trio Maggot Heart unveil a brand new music video for the track »Sex Breath« taken from their second full-length album, »Mercy Machine«, out now on LP/CD/digital via Rapid Eye Records.
Linnéa Olsson comments: “»Sex Breath« was the first song written and completed for »Mercy Machine«. I wanted something very simple and direct, in your face and punk-y. Gottfrid Åhman (ex-In Solitude, Reveal) put his signature on there with the guitar trills in the verses. ‘I wanna see you from a brand new angle’; not very ambiguous, the song is about the power of sexual energy, in different forms. Alexandra Macia is a very talented experimental sound and video artist here in Berlin. For this video she merged her analog style with our rock n’ roll track perfectly.”
Maggot Heart is the brainchild of Swedish guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Linnéa Olsson (ex-The Oath, ex-Grave Pleasures, ex-Beastmilk, ex-Sonic Ritual).
Maggot Heart debuted with the EP »City Girls« in 2017, followed by the 2018 full-length album »Dusk To Dusk«. Together with drummer Uno Bruniusson (ex-In Solitude, Grave Pleasures, Procession) and bassist Olivia Airey, Maggot Heart has become much talked-about force in the underground with their extensive touring (alongside bands like Earthless and Voivod), cross-over hard rock sound, and punk ethos. Maggot Heart’s second full-length effort »Mercy Machine« was released in July 2020 on Rapid Eye Records.
The city as a throbbing organism is one of the fundamental themes of Maggot Heart. On »Mercy Machine«, the machinery of night runs on the steam of many bodies. Locked inside a prison of flesh the spirit will not soar, only in unity with the body can divine alchemy be achieved. »Mercy Machine« is a rock album about sex, death and the pursuit of freedom.
