Author & Punisher announces Beastland album, unveils “Nihil Strength” video: Watch

on August 09, 2018, 2:25pm

The one-man industrial metal band known as Author & Punisher has announced details of his sixth album, which is titled Beastland and arrives October 5th via Relapse Records.

If you’re not familiar with Author & Punisher, it’s the brainchild of Tristan Stone, who creates these Iron Man-like robotic instrumental devices to perform his unique brand of music.

“I built new machines for this album to make more aggressive and dynamic music,” said Stone in a press release. “These devices are compact and powerful, made from robotic components, intended for high energy repetition. I, as do many others, feel rage against the Beasts of our era: those who horde, who poison, or who discriminate.”

He added, “We need aggressive music to make an aggressive statement. Beastland is an introspection of who we are as a human race. At a time when we have the tools, the intellect, and the history to remind us how to treat each other and the earth, we go far out of our way to feast on the less fortunate and vulnerable, disregarding the atrocities and lessons of the past.”

Check out the video for the song “Nihil Strength” below. Pre-orders for Author & Punisher’s Beastland album are available at Relapse Records or various digital outlets.
