about

TAU CROSS, the multinational punk/metal collective featuring 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 third full-length titled Messengers of Deception. Recorded at Signaturetone Recording and mastered by Adam Tucker (Thou, False), TAU CROSS expand on their trademark dark, infectious guitar-driven epics across 54 esoteric minutes.

Ripping tracks such as Burn with Me, Sidhe, and the driving title track see TAU CROSS cross the rubicon and dissect stories passed down through thousand years of manipulation. Topics range from Gnostic Cosmology, Elizabethan and neo Platonic magic, the Ultraterrestrial hypothesis (as outlined through the works of Jacques Vallee & John Keel) and more. TAU CROSS synthesize these ideas and distill them into a dark, turbulent sonic odyssey, questioning the means through which our existence is manipulated by outsiders. Prepare for Messengers of Deception, a true journey into the unknown!

Track Name: Burn with Me
On the brow of this hill, they burned us in chains
The moon was half full, as our bodies writhed in flames
Like madmen they came, raving drunk with death and lust
Captivated by fear, and so they turned our paradise to dust

The victor shall write of our history

So you seek the truth, embrace her whilst you may
Walk into the fire, you and I shall never die
We become the flame, take my hand and burn with me

We marked the stars in their course
We taught our children to be free
We raised the stones and we watched
The heavens turn in symmetry
They came out of the sea
With bloody feet and rotting cloth
Took the life from our hearts
A book of lies, a tortured god upon a cross

Still undecided? You’ll burn with me
