Character #2 Eros: (pronounced Arrows) the abuser, who loses his mother to a drug overdose and later becomes radicalized. Eros explodes in depth by manifesting its own murderous madness.
The lyrics detail how their lives intertwine.
MACHINE HEAD founder Robb Flynn comments:
“Thanks to my 2 teenagers, my family became obsessed with this awesome Japanese anime series called ‘Attack On Titan’. The concept of the album was loosely inspired by the series in the sense that in the storyline, there There’s no ‘good’ or ‘bad’, both characters believe they are doing the right thing as far as their being is concerned, but make no mistake, both are committing acts of pure atrocity and evil. opening track “SLAUGHTER THE MARTYR” is basically our #1 character’s origin story.
