Nivalasta nouseva black metal –yhtye Goats Of Doom on julkaissut uuden kappaleen ”Sokeus Johtaa Kansaa” tulevalta ”Rukous”-albumilta, jonka julkaisupäiväksi on asetettu 7.12.2018. Yhtyeen edellinen levy ”Alla Kirkkaimman Tähden” ilmestyi vuonna 2017.
Kappaletta kuvataan seuraavasti:
The music of this track is an amalgam of differing sensations that work together in powerful and maybe even surprising ways. On the one hand, it applies a sonic blowtorch to the listener’s mind through a combination of superheated, hyper-speed riffing, jet-fast drumming, and the kind of shrieking expulsions of sound that a panther might make if caught in this conflagration (if the panther could scream in Finnish). And in that respect, it’s a no-holds-barred adrenaline rush.
On the other hand, the song includes rocking beats and beguiling note reverberations over a gravel-throated bass, as well as solemn and soaring clean vocals expressing a beleaguered, folk-like melody. On a third hand, the music whirls in a dance of glorious ecstasy. And it becomes apparent by the end (and even more apparent on further listening), that all these ingredients are woven together by through-lines of melody that prove to be variations on a theme.
Fury or disgust may fuel the fires of inspiration for this track (those who can read Finnish would have better insights from the lyric video through which the song is presented), but the emotions that blaze from the music are (at least to these ears) tremendously vibrant and inspiring, even with the shadow of melancholy that hovers in the song’s less incendiary movements..
