New Song by U.K. Alt-Metal Group Vexed Is Sick of This World Too

Vexed, the up-and-coming alt-metal band from the U.K., have just dropped a Grindhouse-styled music video for the floor-punching new song “Hideous,” off the newly announced Culling Culture debut album.

Anger and disgust may be the most relatable human emotion on the Earth right now, which Vexed bottled, distilled and consumed undiluted at casket strength potency on “Hideous.” There’s a brilliant tradeoff in the way this four-piece structured their pounding grooves and serrated vocal assaults, with subtle shades of nu-metal influences.

“It gives us great satisfaction to share with you our Grindhouse inspired music video for our debut single, ‘Hideous’,” said the band. “Fueled by the feeling of ‘seeing red’ and having to decide how to react in moments of betrayal and rage, do you let your blood boil over or sit and wait for the killing instinct to pass?”

Watch the video and read the lyrics for “Hideous” toward the bottom of the page, where you’ll also find the album art and track listing for Culling Culture. Pre-order the album, out May 21 on Napalm Records, here.

Vexed, “Hideous” Lyrics

All I see is hideous

We’re so accustomed to the pain can’t see it’s killing us
There’s evil right before your eyes but you’re oblivious
But all I see is hideous
Disguised as victims but they feed off the delirious
Calculated subtle choices it’s insidious

You might have them fooled but not me
A wolf in sheep’s clothing is all that I see
So keep crying and whining go howl to the moon
‘Cos one day you’ll be left alone to lick your own wounds

You can’t pull the wool over my eyes
Your disguise is a failed attempt of looking elegant but to me you know all I see is…

Hideous

We’re so accustomed to the pain can’t see it’s killing us
There’s evil right before your eyes but you’re oblivious
But all I see is hideous
Disguised as victims but they feed of the delirious
Calculated subtle choices it’s insidious.

Am I the only person here who isn’t falling for your tears?
No amount of nudity can hide the ugliness beneath

All I see is hideous

We’re so accustomed to the pain can’t see it’s killing us
There’s evil right before your eyes but you’re oblivious
But all I see is hideous
Disguised as victims but they feed of the delirious
Calculated subtle choices it’s insidious

Sit, lie down, roll over if you please but all of your tricks little or big they don’t impress me
I’m the only one who’s got you all figured out
You and your fucking big mouth

Am I the only person here who isn’t falling for your tears?
No amount of nudity can hide the ugliness beneath

All I see is hideous

We’re so accustomed to the pain can’t see it’s killing us
There’s evil right before your eyes but you’re oblivious
But all I see is hideous
Disguised as victims but they feed of the delirious
Calculated subtle choices it’s insidious
