St. Louis progressive/blackened sludge act The Lion's Daughter teamed up with Metal Injection for the new single "Grease Infant," which you can check out over here, or just above in the player provided. The song is the latest issued from the new album "Future Cult," which is set to drop on July 20th via Season of Mist. Pre-order the album at this location.
Regarding "Grease Infant", frontman Rick Giordano comments, "'Grease Infant'…When I was in the 5th grade I wrote a short story called Grease Infant for a creative writing assignment. The story was about a baby who was aborted too late into the pregnancy and survived, so it's father threw it into the pond behind the house where it drowned in slime but still remained alive. It lived there for years just haunting the father and wishing that it could die. Needless to say, my teachers were not happy. Some recent problems in my personal life regarding my aversion to reproduction sparked the memory of this story, and seemed like a good opportunity to tell the tale. And I'll admit I kind of get a laugh out of knowing where the source material comes from."
"Future Cult" is the epitome of horror put to sound. A sonic harbinger of the end of time, the album blends the band's harsh and unforgiving modern metal with creeping synths inspired by 70's and 80's horror and sci-fi scores. "Future Cult" weaves tension, anger, violence and malevolence as The Lion's Daughter contemplates a new dawning for man in a post-apocalyptic world. The new God, the new animal, the new cult of desolation and terror; the new hopelessness. "Future Cult" is a suspenseful and horrific study in terror.
