A trailer has hit the web from a new band called Tau Cross.
The group features Amebix vocalist and bassist Rob “The Baron” Miller and Voivod’s drummer Michel “Away” Langevin.
The trailer follows at the end of this post. All I’ll say is, I like this band’s sound. For reals.
Tau Cross further features Misery guitarist Jon Misery and War//Plague guitarist Andy Lefton.
The band formed in 2013 and recorded its debut album over several months in 2014 in three different countries.
The record is slated for release via Relapse on May 19.
“The music that evolved over this time is difficult to categorize, as there is clearly a lot of Amebix in the songwriting as well as some elements of gothic, Joy Division, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, industrial and hard fucking old-school punk rock. This is an entirely original work that is the organic fusion of four unique people. We decided to let the songs form themselves around the original demos and allow people to bring themselves into the mix, to allow the bark to grow around the tree. We are all very proud of what we have achieved in this short time and looking forward to working together again as soon as time allows.”
Tau Cross will be touring, but dates have not been announced yet.
Now, here’s that trailer:
