On the concept behind the track, EXMORTUS founder, vocalist and guitarist, Conan tells LA Weekly: As some may have noticed on my personal page, I don't just post guitar or band stuff, but a lot of food pictures and I'm no vegan. 'Feast of Flesh' is a celebration of our carnal needs and desires. I'm not trying to make any political/environmental statements but I feel this song expresses the ugly and brutal nature of humans and other animals. It ain't pretty so we thought it would be fun to shoot the band chowing down on actual raw flesh fresh from the meat market. My girlfriend was willing to play the hapless victim of the carnage, which made the whole experience quite fun and yet funny since we were all trying to act and not laugh at the whole idea. The song itself is more of a caveman stompy headbanger so the music works beautifully with the lyrics and visuals in bloody harmony. So, sit back and enjoy the Feast of Flesh! Cheers!
