When last we saw them, Son of Aurelius were surprising us all with their newfangled sound and maturity. Much more complex instrumentals were joined by surprisingly powerful clean vocals and the whole thing rang true with progressive ingenuity. We are extremely happy to announce that the excellency previously displayed seems to be the rule for this upcoming release. To prove our point, you can now stream a new track, titled ‘Long Ago’. Check it out after the jump!
We really can’t muster enough praise for the direction in which this release is heading. Deserving of particular attention are the insanely rich bass lines ducking and weaving in the backdrop of this expansive track. They set the tone and ensure that the groove keeps flowing, even as the rest of the composition dips and dives through varied complexities. Side by side by that lives the refreshing tension between clear vocals and guttural growls, screams and shrieks. Long Ago is certainly heavy but it represents a further taste of the mature, intriguing sound we can expect from Under a Western Sun.
Under a Western Sun will be released on June 3rd and is completely and absolutely independent. Keep close watch as we near the release date. We will be certain to revisit what is shaping up to be one of the most interesting and surprising releases of the year.
