Holy Wars Release Video For New Single 'Deus Ex Machina'


Genre-blurring provocateurs Holy Wars have dropped their mind-bending new single and music video “Deus Ex Machina”. Matching hard hitting metal riffs with frantic spoken word, soaring pop melodies, and thought-provoking lyrics, “Deus Ex Machina” is the next step in the evolution of Holy Wars, perfectly showcasing the indefinable combination of vocalist, Kat Leon’s dynamic vocal techniques and guitarist/producer, Nick Perez's down-tuned guitar riffs and cinematic soundscapes.


The cinematic music video for “Deus Ex Machina” immerses us in the literal rollercoaster ride of vocalist Kat Leon’s deep and sometimes dark psyche. She unpacks the song’s themes as follows:


“Deus Ex Machina was inspired by my love of psychology and how fascinating the brain is. The God of the human machine. Deus Ex Machina meaning God from the Machine really helped shape the message of what I was wanting to say lyrically in this song, how our personal narrative is powerful. We often rewrite our stories as the hero's tale but we very possibly could be the villain in another's. Our words are powerful and our story is our legacy. In this song I wanted to display the attack side of the narrative, how any issue I have had with another has stemmed from projection, a choice and the power I allow it to have. The ghost in the machine haunting my thoughts and puppeting my actions. Deus Ex Machina is a hard hitting wild sonic ride of the mania that lives underneath us all."
