World Under Blood Posts Second Track-By-Track "Tactical" Breakdown

Deron Miller, the guitarist/vocalist World Under Blood, has released the second part of the track-by-track description for the band's debut album, "Tactical." You can find the second part below, or head over to the first part here. "Tactical" is due out on July 26th (North America) and July 29th, 2011 (Europe).


The first official World Under Blood song written and probably the most accessible. It got a tremendous reaction when it was streamed on MySpace in 2006. I was really happy with it and was excited to forge ahead and see what else we would come up with for a full-length album. Lyrically it hits close to home because it's about depression and extreme anxiety and just not knowing what to do with yourself or where to turn. The ending riff, to me, is really sad. After that long ass scream it feels like the song ends on a sad note, which I'm very fond of. Tim Yeung plays the keyboards at the end, and I believe the bass at the end too.


This was the last song written for Tactical and when i heard the demo i was worried that it was going to be the album's only throwaway track. Once we laid it down for the record, it turned into one of my favorites. It's about numbing every nerve in a criminal's body, blinding and deafening them, and leaving them with just their brain... to think and to suffer. What would that be like? I think that we should experiment on rapists and murderers and find out all the things we've ever wanted to know about the human body...much like the medical field experiments on rats and other animals. We could correct and cure a lot of diseases and problems if we started using worthless humans as the subjects. Non-stop speed and brutality. not much melody this time. fine with me.


The 2nd song we wrote, and the ruff mix ended up on MySpace. Some people, such as myself have something called S.A.D...."seasonal affective disorder"....mine has hit me every other year from August until December since I was 19. Basically , these people get severely depressed during a certain season, usually autumn. Many have problems during winter as well. I'm very proud of the riffs and arrangements in this song and I love the trade off of solos between me and James Murphy. I've been dreaming of trading off with Murphy since i was 11, and this song made it happen. The funny thing is, I am no lead guitarist, but I pull of some pretty cool licks. I also dig the scream at the end, no tricks, no pro-tools or punch in's...It really is that long. Tim's fills and drumming on this one are just out of fucking control and amazing.
