Weird Tales set to release blues covers EP!
Polish psychedelic doom act of three – Weird Tales thicken the plot of their tale with a brand new EP – »Y’all Motherfuckers Forgot ‘Bout Good Ol’ Son Of A Bitchin’ Blues«. Which, like everything else from this twisted trio, dares to go far outside the confines of what you would expect from a doom album.
With this record, Weird Tales pays homage to the true founding fathers. Where it all began, the kings of blues! With out blues, there is no rock, with out rock there is no doom metal, and without doom metal, well, let’s not even speculate where Weird Tales would be.
The concept of this album – pass the blues through the Weird Tales prism, twisting and bending it until it’s barely recognizable. Catch the essence of each track, wrap it with our heavy riffs and extrapolate. The result? The heaviest blues album ever put forth!
The first single from the album – »Got The Blues For Murder Only« can be heard below:
Weird Tales adds: “How we are sick of covers! It’s always the same, note by note covers, slowed down, tuned down – the DOOM covers. How we are bored by it! The only acceptable form of cover – is an abstract one. A new self-contained, original piece of music. Whole new riffs and arrangements, and still, it is a cover. It’s bound to the original with it’s intention and message. The cover that is a rethinking of the original becoming it’s evolution.
With this EP we’re retelling with our own language the killer blues of four men.
Lonnie Johnson, Skip James, Blind Willie Johnson, Muddy Waters are the four motherfuckers who knew what’s this all about done way before you were born.
It is our vision of what is the most important in this blues. Our blues in 2020.”
