Greg Anderson, performing under the name †The Lord†, is now streaming his new single "Palliare" featuring Die Kreuzen and The Crosses vocalist Daniel Kubinski. It's a noisy, droning trip through hell that's well-worth repeating multiple times. So much so that you should go get it on Bandcamp right here.
"The lyrics for 'Pallaire' were actually written in 2016 when the first line up of The Crosses were writing songs for an original LP," said Kubinski. "The lyrics were for a song entitled 'Goner' which was kind of a noisy, lightning speed, crazy song that sounded somewhat like the Birthday Party if they had written a hardcore song. I had always liked the lyrics so when The Crosses split up in 2017 (the first inception of the group) I held on to the lyrics hoping to use them for something else down the road."
"In 2022 Sunn O))) guitarist and Southern Lord founder Greg Anderson approached me and invited me to sing on one of his songs for his project, The Lord. The first time I heard the song Greg sent me, I immediately remembered the 'Goner' lyrics and thought they might work for the song, they were a perfect fit! I am so proud to be part of The Lord family and that Greg and Southern Lord believed in me to come up with the goods."
Anderson added: "I've been a massive fan of Daniel Kubinski ever since I heard his caustic vocals in Die Kreuzen circa 1985. While the musical direction of Die Kreuzen changed drastically over the years, it was always anchored by Daniel's unique, innovative vocal style. Massive respect to him for simultaneously blazing a unique path and breaking new ground. I finally got to meet Daniel when Sunn O))) played with his current band, The Crosses, in Milwaukee at the Turner Ballroom. I was equally blown away by his performance that evening as well as his humility and kindness."
