Richmond, Virginia-based politically motivated hardcore outfit ARMAGIDEON TIME delivers their first video, for the raucous “Foxed In The Head,” delivered through an exclusive premiere at Metal Injection. The song is found on ARMAGIDEON TIME’s debut EP, Crime As Theatre, released in May through Anti-Corporate Music.
Straight from the heart of the birthplace of slavery and segregation comes ARMAGIDEON TIME. Born out of paranoia and racial tension in the Spring of 2019, Jesse Mowery (Karoshi, In Wolves Clothing, Apostles Of Eris) and Andy Kohler (Voarm, Argentinum Astrum, Sadville) began ruminating on a new musical endeavor. They soon added Shaun Reeves (Voarm) on bass and Taimir Gore (Broke Royals, Kristeva, Glossing) on guitar to round out the instrumental section of this new project. After a year of rehearsal, followed by another year waiting out a pandemic, they connected with rapper BlackLiq, who had recently released his collaborative album with emcee/producer Mopes, titled Time Is The Price on Strange Famous Records.
Together, this newly formed unit wrote and recorded their debut EP Crime As Theatre. The resulting collection of energetic songs is a story about life, love, and Fox News, told over a relentless blend of ripping crust/d-beat-infused melodic hardcore. Lyrically, the band’s approach challenges the fearmongering, misinformation, and exploitation of the poor that has become the standard American custom, while holding accountable the parties that use those methods to further their agendas.
ARMAGIDEON TIME’s Crime As Theatre was recorded by Bob Quirk and Yave Rust, mixed by Bob Quirk, and mastered by Dan Emery at Black Matter Mastering, the record then completed with cover art by Emily Robinson and photos by Randy Blythe (Lamb Of God).
The “Foxed In The Head” video was filmed and directed by Folie & Merc. BlackLiq writes, “It’s been said the goal of a 24-hour news network is to keep the viewer informed with information that is just as current as the time that is wasted watching it. This is supposed to happen in just five minutes. So, we made a song and video that tells you everything you need to know about Fox News in the span of two minutes. The only difference is unlike any news station out there we’re not telling you what to think, just to think.”
Metal Injection writes, “The song takes on the current state of FOX News and encourages watchers to think for themselves, rather than trust what’s on the TV.”
