From Argonauta Records:
Heavy doom rock masters, Mos Generator, have unleashed a crushing new song, taken from their upcoming 5- track split with Italy’s sludge heavy weights Di’Aul! The limited vinyl edition is slated for a release on September 25th 2020 via Argonauta Records. The colossal doom rock anthem, »I Spoke To Death« by Mos Generator, which has just been premiered on Invisible Oranges, can now be streamed.
Says band mastermind, Tony Reed: “We haven’t been able to work on any new material this year so I have been digging through the Mos Generator vaults to find unreleased songs for new vinyl issues. I Spoke To Death is a demo of a song that we recorded in our jamroom in May of 2014 and never made a proper studio recording of after. It was a collaboration between me and drummer Shawn Johnson, and in my opinion, sounds like 80s Pentagram. If I remember correctly, this was only the second or third time we ever played it. After that, I brought it to my studio to do additional guitars and vocals.”
Tony Reed’s Mos Generator, who formed in 2000 in Port Orchard, Washington from the ashes of a ten year off & on collaboration between it’s three members, all of which are long time veterans of road & studio, inspired the heavy music scene since decades. The need to strip down to the basics of hard rock was apparent from their start and continues to be the foundation for all the bands recent material. Mos Generator have released 9 full length studio albums, a retrospective album, 2 live albums and a plethora of split 7″ and 12″ singles on such labels as Listenable, Roadburn, Small Stone, Ripple, Nasoni, Lay Bare, Hevi Sike, H42, Devil’s Child, Kozmik Artifactz and Heavy Psych Sounds. Touring has been just as important to the profile of the band as making records has. Over the years Mos Generator has shared the stage with many great heavy rock bands across Europe and North America including extensive tours with Saint Vitus, FU Manchu, Elder, Spirit Caravan and The Atomic Bitchwax. They have also played many prestigious festivals throughout Europe including 2 appearances at Hellfest in France, opening up a whole new fan base to the Mos Generator sound. After 20 years of making music the band shows no sign of slowing down. September 25th, 2020, will see them release their split with Di’Aul.
The B-side kicks off with Di’Aul, who recorded two brand new songs in a one day session. Both tracks represent a vibrant sound of heavy as hell rock, sludge-infused doom tunes with a melancholic atmosphere: a mix between the ’70s Sabbath sound and the power of 90’s heavy music, from a harsh distortion to slow-paced sludge infusions, fuzz-fueled riffs, big grooves and expressive vocals, Di’Aul take you on a trip through all that is heavy. The featured tracks on the split have been mastered by Tony Reed himself. Watch their latest video to the »The House On The Edge Of The World« below.
