With the European release of New World Order, the imminent new full-length from Italian progressive occult metal alchemists, VOID OF SLEEP, now just days away, today New Noise Magazine is pleased to unveil the official lyric video for third cut, “Slaves Shall Serve.”
A seven-track concept offering thrusting forth a cosmic amalgam of stoned out, progressive sludge rock where epic rhythms melt into bottom heavy doom breakdowns, complex time signatures and psychedelia, New World Order was captured by bassist Riccardo Pasini (Ephel Duath, The Secret) at Studio73 in Ravenna, Italy and mastered by Collin Jordan (Eyehategod, Indian, Wovenhand, Voivod etc.) at The Boiler Room in Chicago, Illinois.
Elaborates the band of the rumbling “Slaves Shall Serve,” “This track is absolutely the most genuine and in-your-face song of the new record and it brings out our most valuable stoner rock spirit with bombastic riffs and wicked grooves. Lyrically, the song gets in the heart of the concept of the entire album with darkened and occult themes.”
Sample “Slaves Shall Serve,” now playing at New Noise HERE.
You can also witness “Hidden Revelations,” still streaming at The Obelisk HERE.
Forged in Ravenna, Italy, VOID OF SLEEP is comprised of guitarist Gale, vocalist/guitarist Burdo, drummer Allo and bassist Paso. Following a three-song promo EP, Giants & Killers, which garnered the attention of Italian imprint, Aural Music, the band released their full-length debut, Tales Between Reality And Madness. Crowned, “adventurous, intelligent and refreshingly addictive,” by Teeth Of The Divine, and an, “underground gem worth discovering,” by Metal Underground, the record proved wholly engrossing both sonically and thematically with lyrics exploring the darkest corners of the human psyche, oneiric visions and lysergic nightmares.
With New World Order, VOID OF SLEEP continues their multi-faceted, audio journey towards oblivion. New World Order comes shrouded in the arcane cover creation of Simone Bertozzi who relays of the work, “while doing it I experienced the breath of Lucifer on my back, the Illuminati around the corner and reptilians getting ready for my abduction. Coincidence? I think not.”
VOID OF SLEEP‘s New World Order will be available via Aural Music on CD in Europe this Friday, October 16th and in North America on November 13th. The record will be available digitally worldwide on October 18th with vinyl available in the New Year. Preorders are currently available HERE.
