Gygax Premiere New Single “The Lascivious Underdark”

Ventura, California fantasy metal/rock outfit Gygax has premiered “The Lascivious Underdark” – the lead single from their impending second album, Second Edition, streaming below.

Gygax picks up where their 2016-released Critical Hits debut left off. The eight tracks that comprise Second Edition showcase Gygax’s unrivaled and potent tendency to create absolutely anthemic rock ‘n’ roll hits, chock-full of hip shakin’ grooves and twin guitar explosions that would make Thin Lizzy shed a tear of pride. Second Edition was recorded in November of 2017 with Scott Goodrich at Nu-Tone Studios in Pittsburgh, California, and features the always incredible artwork of Fares Maese.

Of “The Lascivious Underdark,” Gygax guitarist/vocalist Eric Harris offers:

“The song takes place in the dangerous wilds of the Underdark, from the perspective of a Mind Flayer. It calls to its female prey through the lustful thoughts within its predatory mind, luring her with promises of a better life. All the while, dominance and subjugation are its end objective.”

Realms Of Vision (Animosity, Entheos, Etc.) To Release “Through All Unknown” LP

Creator-Destructor Records is excited to announce the late March release of Through All Unknown, the upcoming full-length from Bay Area-based Realms Of Vision.

Realms Of Vision began in 2015 and has been establishing a name for themselves regionally with their special blend of slow destruction. Featuring Frank Costa (Animosity, Entheos) and Corey Largent on guitars and vocals, Mike Ambrose (Set Your Goals) on drums, and Brandon McCubbin on bass, the California hard-hitters are road-worn experts in their craft, and the nine tracks that comprise Through All Unknown reveal that resoundingly.

While their debut EP introduced the world to the band’s sonic intent, their debut album serves as a massive accomplishment in the band’s progression. Costa explains: “Through All Unknown is an album about trudging down the path of reality. It explores life and death, the natural world, the dark powers that control our lives, and trying to connect with a spirit greater than ourselves. The music has expanded melodically and thematically from the Unrevenged EP, while keeping the influences heard on that release very much alive. Through All Unknown is the first major step in our identity as a band, and we can’t wait to keep exploring.”

Realms Of Vision will release Through All Unknown on CD, LP, and digital platforms on March 30th, 2018.
