Author & Punisher delivers new song “Ode to Bedlam”: Stream

on September 27, 2018, 2:00pm

With the new album Beastland on the way from Author & Punisher — the one-man industrial metal band masterminded by Tristan Shone — Heavy Consequence and Consequence of Sound are teaming up with the artist to bring you the exclusive premiere of the track “Ode to Bedlam” (listen below).

Author & Punisher is an act like none other in the metal scene, with Shone fashioning homemade robotic instruments to create his unique and pummeling sound. Beastland, due October 5th, is Author & Punisher’s eighth album overall and first for Relapse Records.

Shone tells us of the multilayered song, “‘Ode to Bedlam’ is a track inspired by a book The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin — a brilliant dystopian fantasy focusing on elements of racism, planetary demise and tribalism, among other things. Like the novel, the track is heavy and dark, but also meandering, eventually finding a triumphant finale.”

He adds. “Along with being a somewhat political album, albeit in an abstract prose, Beastland is an one that explores the emotional and physical pain of our downfall, where I’d like to think I take an analytical approach, rather than one of pure cynicism and despair.”

Beastland is available for pre-order digitally at this location and physically at the Relapse Records store. In support of the album release, Author & Punisher is out on the road through early December, playing Europe and North America. A full list of dates can be seen below.
