D.Franco I haven't been this excited for a release in quite some time. Their first album has been on HEAVY rotation since it dropped.

about

TAU CROSS, the multinational punk / heavy metal collective revolving around Amebix bassist / frontman Rob "The Baron" Miller, Voivod drummer Michel "Away" Langevin, and members of cult crust outfits Misery and War//Plague, return with their highly anticipated sophomore full-length entitled Pillar of Fire. Recorded in three different countries and co-produced by "The Baron", Pillar of Fire further expands the group's unique musical approach ranging from dark folk witchery to industrial punk metal brutalism; a moody melting pot of Killing Joke's metallic post-punk and Motörhead's anthemic, hard rock with flourishes of traditional instrumentation and an infusion of 16th century English mysticism. Pillar of Fire is a musical unearthing of TAU CROSS's philosophical preoccupations: mythological motifs, ultra-terrestrial hypotheses, surreal, social political landscapes and the endless search for meaning in a controlled Universe.

Track Name: Deep State
A silent figure watching out from beneath the ancient trees
This secret commonwealth is hidden far beneath the light of day
In moonlight the earth wakes, in caverns the stones break

And we are paralyzed, frozen in the deeper sleep
Paralyzed
Inside on the outside, white light white light
The eyes of the deep state burning, burning

Lord of the flying fires, legions of the hidden sun
Are bleeding through into the light, from our nightmare they have come
Intention, hostile, your bloodline, the lost child

Three men arriving from the east, black skies above the ashen priest
The earth is buckling in protest
The armies of the dispossessed

We call out, in nightmare
Yet find we remain there

And we are paralyzed, a cold wind blows through hell tonight
