Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Whom Gods Destroy, the formidable new progressive-metal group formed by keyboardist Derek Sherinian, guitarist Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal, and vocalist Dino Jelusick, along with the potent rhythm section of bassist Yas Nomura and drummer Bruno Valverde, have shared the third single from their upcoming debut album “Insanium”, to be released on March 15th, 2024 via Inside Out Music.

“Crawl” comes in the form of a video directed by Vicente Cordero of Industrialism Films, edited by Vojan Koceić / PILOTstudio, and with visual FX and additional editing by Wayne Joyner. Check it out below.

Whom Gods Destroy vocalist Dino Jelusick commented about “Crawl”: “’Crawl’ was the 2nd song Ron, Derek & myself worked on. We had many versions of it. Very progressive and very melodic. Combines all the influences that the band has and just grows into something that’s our very own.”

“Insanium” can be pre-ordered/saved AT THIS LOCATION.

The album features 9 compositions accompanied by a bonus track for 60 minutes of intensity, barely giving the listener time to catch their breath. The opening track and first single “In the Name of War” is a tour de force that showcases the full spectrum of what this band offers, from the opening classical piano to the thunderous guitars, commanding drums, and resonant bass, to the incomparable vocal prowess of Jelusick, who says the track contains his “favorite lyric on the album.”

While the musicianship throughout the album might be untouchable, the lyrics are very relatable and personal. Jelusick describes “The Decision” as a song about giving up but reflecting on the past and realizing it’s worth giving it one more try and being grateful for all the good things that happened along the way. While a song like “Find Our Way Back” is about coming back home and realizing it’s not a home anymore. Relatable for many people on the road.

Sherinian and Bumblefoot have built upon the creative link they developed as two of the key elements of supergroup Sons of Apollo and now set their sights on a new path with Whom Gods Destroy, who is getting ready to present the musical odyssey that is their debut opus,

Bumblefoot explains how Whom Gods Destroy got started: Derek & I began writing new music in 2020. Soon after, Dino joined, followed by Yas and Bruno. We’d share ideas, and each record parts, building and rebuilding songs, and by June ’23 the album was finished. The songs all went through a lot of changes, developing…you can definitely hear what each person brings to the music – when it adds up, it’s a mix of melody and intense heavy prog.”

Working with powerhouse vocalist Dino Jelusick, as well as Yas Nomura and Bruno Valverde, they knew they were building something special, says Bumblefoot. “These guys are all just mind-blowing…! I’ve known Dino for a few years, we did a collab song a few years ago…his voice is just magic. He’s one of the greatest singers out there. Bruno & Yas are downright frightening, there’s no limit to what they can do, WTF…! And all great guys to hang with.”

Sherinian agrees, “All three of these musicians are super talented with great energy. I think Dino is the real deal. Ron and I knew that we could do something great with him.”

Jelusick expresses his excitement as well, “What I love about this band is that it doesn’t have any limits. It came together back in 2020 when we started talking about it. Yas and I started working separately not knowing we were both asked to do this. Bruno was the last piece of this puzzle and I’m glad the recommendation came from me. Love this line-up. Derek and Ron are wizards.”
