French progressive metal quintet THE DALI THUNDERING CONCEPT have announced the release of their dystopian concept album of album Savages, out 13 April via Apathia Records.
The band have also unveiled new single ‘Ink’, featuring guest vocals from Adam Warren (Oceano). Check it out here:
Savages is a dark projection of the future of humanity, should it not take drastic action to alter its course. What are the consequences of the global warming, the rise of right-wing populism and the politics of nostalgia, the growing rich-poor divide? According to THE DALI THUNDERING CONCEPT the future is very bleak.
Low-tuned riffs, crushing grooves and painfully abrasive vocals deliver this message with huge effect and urgency, however there is a glimmer of hope, illustrated by hints of electronica and even jazz. It’s an album of anger, suffering, despair and conflict, with many twists and turns; an impressive achievement for a band so young in their career.
THE DALI THUNDERING CONCEPT will be touring the UK and Europe far and wide in 2018, dates to be announced soon.
23 February – Complexity Festival, Haarlem – NL
