Arcade Messiah, the new project from Kingbathmat frontman John Bassett, is streaming a new track online.
“Sun Exile” is taken from their eponymous debut album, scheduled for release on the 1st of December via Stereohead Records.
Says Bassett of the Arcade Messiah album: “After writing and producing numerous KingBathmat albums and more recently the acoustic solo album Unearth, I decided I wanted to create my first instrumental album, and I wanted it to be set, audibly and visually in a dark, bleak apocalyptic aura of despair and anger.
“I wanted to focus on enormous riffs and sorrowful yet powerful musical refrains and place them within a terrain of unusual time signatures interspersed by moments of psychedelic calm.”
