Forgotten Tomb Release Unnerving Lyric Video For “We Owe You Nothing”

Forgotten Tomb are nothing short of diabolical with the title track of their new album, We Owe You Nothing. Not only are the lyrics ultra-aggressive, but the bands lyric video for the track is a gory collection with a severe preoccupation with murder. Forgotten Tomb commented on the album: Our discography has always been divided by trilogies. We Owe You Nothing
