“Midnight Valentine” – Australian deathcore / beatdown act SEDATIVE wreaks havoc with new single and music video

Blisteringly heavy and unapologetically aggressive, this new single from the Perth deathcore specialists SEDATIVE pulls absolutely no punches. With an instrumental bed that sounds near apocalyptic and a vocal performance that blends SEDATIVE’s unique harrowing pain with a new channel of anguish and torment, ‘Midnight Valentine’ shows once again why Sedative are the heaviest band in Australia right now.

This hot new offering is a testimony to the band’s dedication, musical prowess and all round brutality. Vocalist Matthew Daly delivers blackened melodies from the deepest depths of inhumane gutturals as he continues to explore confronting themes through his lyricism.

Featuring the groups signature metalcore riffage, superbly tight rhythm section propelling the song in a mid-tempo menacing pace and a doom oriented breakdown, ‘Midnight Valentine‘ is a crushingly heavy masterpiece to add to the groups impressive repertoire.

Daly on the new release: “Here we have Sedative’s crushing follow up to their Debut Record ‘Death Romantic’. Blisteringly heavy and unapologetically aggressive, this new single from the Perth deathcore specialists pulls absolutely no punches. With an instrumental bed that sounds near on apocalyptic and a vocal performance that blends Sedative’s unique harrowing pain with a new channel of anguish and torment, ‘Midnight Valentine’ shows once again why Sedative are the heaviest band in Australia right now.”

“Midnight Valentine” Lyrics:

What would it take to let me go?
I just don’t love you anymore
When we said we’d last forever
We meant the scars we’d give each other

Blacked out eyes with a blacked out name
Blacked out from the bottle again
You said you found love in the worst way
Who the fuck said you found love in the first place?

She tell her friends I’m a dog
As though she ain’t the one who’s been barking non stop
She say she tried to stop me from leaving
Well how the fuck am I the one that’s left bleeding?

Every week I’m getting sicker
Sold my soul just to drown in the undertow
Every week I’m getting sicker
Burned down the trees to just to watch the dirt grow

I think we’d both be better off dead
Sold my soul just to drown in the undertow

Bury our bodies with our arms intertwining
One last chance to be scratched into your skin

You’d rather be the angel to my demons?
You can be them or release them
