Tales Of The Tomb will release their new EP Volume Two: Mendicium on September 27, which should please just about every fan of both metal and conspiracy theories. The release is a collection of narratives surrounding government cover-ups, national lies and the heinous crimes committed amongst the shadows, and we're more than stoked to premiere the new song "Sinful Messiah" right now.
Here's what the band had to say about the track.
"Our song 'Sinful Messiah' focuses on the cult leader from the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas — David Koresh. The Branch attracted the attention of the ATF when the US postal service flagged a suspicious parcel containing live hand grenades being shipped to their compound. The name 'Sinful Messiah' is ripped from the headline of a newspaper article giving him title; because David believed he was the second coming of Christ. This song was written to sonically recreate the events that took place portraying the level of chaos and confusion created by raids and the siege on the compound. This event has been regarded by some as a publicity stunt in the wake of cult hysteria to paint the ATF in a positive light — leading to a “who shot first?” conspiracy."
Volume Two: Mendicium was mixed and mastered by Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy). Pre-order the EP here.
