Denver, Colorado based blackened doom/sludge trio Oryx stream their fourth full-length album, »Lamenting A Dead World«, which was just release this Friday, April 30th, 2021 via Translation Loss Records.
Says the band: “Eternal gratitude to Translation Loss Records and everyone involved in this album. You can order the LP on vinyl through Translation Loss and Evil Greed. »Lamenting A Dead World« is also streaming everywhere as of today.
We are extremely proud of this album and the journey it took to get here. In a world filled with uncertainties, we are confident that what we wanted to say was conveyed. We hope you find catharsis in the wreckage.”
“»Lamenting A Dead World« was born from the eye of the storm. America in all of its self-indulgent splendor showed the rest of the world its true perversion, insolence, and complete lack of regard for human life during the 2020 pandemic and economic crisis. The thin veil of society cracked under pressure and the realm of egocentric mania showed its ugly face in what seemed like an unprecedented low point for our modern civilization. But this dark underbelly of humanity is nothing we haven’t seen throughout centuries of religious tirades turned into bloody, endless and overlapping wars. This album was written as a reflection on the insanity of what it means to justify existence in the age of self-diluted piety.” comments guitarist/vocalist Tommy Davis.
