There’s only a few more days until the Jan. 28 release of Earthless’ epic Night Parade of One Hundred Demons, which will be out via Nuclear Blast. Today (Jan. 24), the psych-rock trio shares a taste of the album’s epic 41-minute title track.
Inspired by a terrifying Japanese legend in which demons terrorize sleeping villages, claiming any victim who witnesses their arrival, “Night Parade of One Hundred Demons” is a vicious onslaught of pounding drums that clash with soaring guitars and rumbling bass to mimic an impending stampede of terror.
The band has noted that the album is a different and darker tone than what they’ve done in the past. “There’s more paranoia and noise,” says drummer Mario Rubalcaba. “Some of Isaiah’s whammy-bar stuff kind of reminds me of these Jeff Hanneman moments in Reign In Blood, where it just seems like everything is going to hell. It’s pretty fun.”
