Now this is a hell of a way to end the week.
Today, we’re bringing you an exclusive song stream from a black metal band out of New England called Autolatry.
The track itself, as you will see, kicks serious ass, which might be a solid indicator of what their upcoming, independently-released LP will sound like. Alas, I have only heard this one ripping, ultra-layered tune, but am looking forward to hearing Native.
That’s the band’s new one, which will be available for purchase June 18.
Trust me: The song at the end of this post will not disappoint. If you’re into expansive black metal that delves into experimental sections of sheer guitar mastery, you must listen.
And you will love it. The song is called “Pale Dishonor,” and if you do not like this, then there’s something wrong with your ears.
Or your brain. Or both.
Native, I am told, is a concept album six songs long that tells the tale of Native American assimilation at the time of the colonial settling in New England.
Says Karl Chamberlain: “This album represents a powerful look into New England’s history as well as our history as a band. For the first time, the whole band was in one room when we wrote the album and the collaboration forced us to step up our game. Autolatry has always had an underlying concept, but Native was created to flow conceptually, lyrically, and musically together. I see this as not just the next step, but an entire new beginning for us.”
The album was engineered and mixed by guitarist and songwriter Dave Kaminsky at Morrisound Recording in Tampa, Florida, and at the band’s home base in Mansfield, Connecticut.
