Exclusive Song Stream: Invasion’s “The Divine Wind”Wednesday, 25th January 2017
We are stoked to be streaming “The Divine Wind,” a song from war metal brigade Invasion‘s forthcoming new album, Destroyer of Mankind.
“The topic and song title essentially deals with the thoughts and actions of young Japanese kamikaze pilots during the World War II,” notes guitarist/vocalist Pete. “Their doctrine, ‘The Bushido Code,’ was an unwritten Samurai code of conduct which held that the true warrior must hold loyalty, courage, veracity, compassion and honor as important, above all else. These young men would volunteer to fly their aircraft into their enemy (United States Navy) at any cost, with the sole intention of ramming their aircraft with explosives and to sink, crush, mutilate or maim the U.S. forces until they withdrew from combat. It is rumored that there were more men available ready to fly than aircraft available to be used for such purpose. Here is an excerpt from a Kamikaze pilot’s manual: ‘When you eliminate all thoughts about life and death, you will be able to totally disregard your earthly life. This will also enable you to concentrate your attention on eradicating the enemy with unwavering determination, meanwhile reinforcing your excellence in flight skills.'”
Destroyer of Mankind will be released February 17 via Abyss Records. You can order the album at this location.
