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
Track Name: Killing the King
Silence, upon the land
As winter eats into the soul
No fire, within the hall
To cleanse this land of wickedness and blood

Crow calls within the wood
On black sands, the plague ships burn
As for the law, what law there is has failed
Your savior is never to come

There’s a man in the sky for the faithful
There’s a face in the moon for the child
But we are the knights of the wasteland
In a mad world we’re for killing the king

The evil, the arrogant
Have risen, upon the piled up bodies of our dead
And the stones crack and the mountains crumble down into the sea
And who will stand with me

There’s a law of the land to condemn us
And the law of the just makes us strong
For we are the knights of the wasteland
And justice is burning, we’re killing the king

Those who would divide and conquer
Our scaffold shall greet them well
The oak of our fathers take the task
The fall to Hell

Rise up in the Eastland, Arise! In the north
For we are the knights of the wasteland
And when a dark sun rises
We’re killing the king
