Mumbai, India-based horror/heavy metal band ALBATROSS has recently released a single from its upcoming EP, “The Kissing Flies”. The track titled “Uncle Sunny At The Tavern”, which can be streamed using the SoundCloud player below, features Niklas Stalvind (vocalist/rhythm guitarist of Swedish heavy metallers WOLF) sharing vocal duties with ALBATROSS frontman Biprorshee Das.
Bassist Dr. Hex explains the concept behind the song: “An unnamed narrator returns to his native town, Raptorsville, after sixteen years to find it in shambles. An element of decay pervades every inch of the town; an atmosphere of wither which seems to have infected even the townspeople. Unable to come to terms with this disarray, he walks into the local tavern and meets a figure he recognizes from his youth, the mysterious Uncle Sunny. What ensues is left for you, the listener, to discover.”
“The Kissing Flies” is ALBATROSS‘s second release and the follow-up to the band’s 2010 debut, “Dinner Is You”. The EP forms a part of a split release with American occult metal band VESTAL CLARET and is slated for an April 2012 release.
Dr Hex adds: “Exciting things are happening in the ALBATROSS camp. We’ve recently signed on to a merchandising company, and a label announcement will be made at a later date.”
