Tyrannus – Scottish Anti-Fascist Thrash/Death-Metal Outfit Unleash New Track “The Flood”
Scottish anti-fascist thrash/death-metal outfit Tyrannus have just unleashed a new track from their debut album “Unslayable”, which is set for release on April 22 on vinyl and cassette via True Cult Records and CD/Digital via Creative Scotland. Pre-orders are now available at this location.
Titled “The Flood”, this new track is now playing at Decibel Magazine, who had this to say about the track “The Flood,” the third track on Unslayable, mixes incessant thrash riffing with black metal aggression and post-black metal atmospherics. There are even psych touches as the band briefly relents from the black-spattered blast-beat attack to add some washes of lightness and color.
If you missed, the leading single “A Worse Reality” is still playing at this location.
Formed in 2018, Tyrannus started out as duo comprised of Callum John Cant (guitars/bass/vocals) and Alasdair Dunn (drums) and their initial goal was to simply make extreme metal music that would sound intense and captivating at the same time.
The duo recorded their first demo in 2018, which went a little under the radar, but nonetheless they were determined to continue writing material for a full-length album.
They released some of the songs to be featured on their first album as 3-track demo in 2021, and the response was overwhelming and eventually caught the attention of True Cult Records, who released the demo on cassette.
Galvanized by the response to the new demo, they enlisted Fraser Gordon to handle guitar and Alistair Harley to play bass, and soon started playing live. And the newly formed quartet then entered the studio to re-record the demo songs along with ones and the result is “Unslayable”.
Produced by Scott McLean, Tyrannus and Caitlín Smith, recorded, engineered, mixed and mastered by Scott McLean at La Chunky Studios, “Unslayable” is an album that masterfully combines of crushing attack of thrash and death-metal with elements of psychedelic and post-black metal.
