Death metal band BEGAT THE NEPHILIM have teamed up with Metal Injection to stream "Cardboard Casket" a new song from their upcoming album "Begat the Nephilim I: The Surreptitious Prophecy / Mother of the Blasphemy".
The band commented ""Cardboard Casket" tells the tale, based on a true story, of a woman broken by the miscarriage of her child. Out of desperation, she keeps the stillborn in a cardboard box and prays daily for God to grant her child life. Ultimately, her prayers go unanswered and the unborn child deteriorates, as does the woman’s mental health."
""Cardboard Casket” stands out as the one song on the record that is separate from the concept arc present throughout the rest of the album. It is linked through the themes of loss, depravity, and conflict. Because of the thematic differences, the songwriting itself stands apart from the rest of the album, like shifting perspective from a birds-eye view of a world in peril to the more focused, intense torment raging within a single individual. We feel it to be one of The Surreptitious Prophecy’s stronger offerings in both composition and lyricism."
