Holy Sons - Decline Of The West
Haunting, personal and incredibly intimate songwriting. Emil Amos brings forward another 15 songs filled with loads of layering and hypnotizing riffs matched with desperate on-edge vocals that make it seem as if Amos was having a mental breakdown in the midst of his recording sessions.
With lines like "Creeping way down low, where nobody else goes, where no one came back alive. It feels just like you're losing your mind." and "Evil falling down from the sky, clouds parting, fingers pointing down again." Amos invites the listener into his eery and overly-imaginative world which is likely inspired by LSD flashbacks and insomnia.
His newest release is titled "Drifter's Sympathy" and is out on IMPORTANT RECORDS.
Here's a video released for the track Ferel Kid.
Side Note: Amos plays drums in two current bands, Grails and Om. Both worth checking out if you have yet to do so. Both of which are also previously featured on this blog. Get on it.
