Potential AOY for black metal enthusiasts.
Following the previous announcement of The Suns of Perdition tetralogy, black metal alchemists PANZERFAUST have made the available the opening track of The Suns of Perdition - Chapter I: War, Horrid War, which is out via Eisenwald on June 14th.
The track, aptly named The Day After 'Trinity,' gets it's name from the 1945 Manhattan Project nuclear test. Needless to say, it's explosive as the scenario it was named after. The Day After 'Trinity' opens with cataclysmic drumming and soars with razor sharp guitars, perfectly complemented by the bellowed growls from hell. On this track alone, PANZERFAUST demonstrate that their musical prowess is at an all time high.
The band had the following to say on the single:
The Day After ‘Trinity’ is derived from the Manhattan Project's first atomic bomb detonation in 1945. The code name for the nuclear test, "Trinity," was coined by physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer and inspired by the poetry of John Donne. In a 1980 documentary covering the detonation, Oppenheimer is asked for his thoughts on Sen. Robert Kennedy's efforts to urge President Lyndon B. Johnson to initiate talks to stop the spread of nuclear weapons. "It's 20 years too late," he replies. After a long pause, he states, "It should have been done the day after Trinity.”
