The Lion's Daughter - "Four Flies" (audio) (premiere)

Doom meets noise on the St. Louis band's roaring new track.

St. Louis trio the Lion's Daughter specialize in the kind of doom metal that derives itself more from Neurosis than Candlemass: it's punishing, viscerally intense, harsh, and not above employing some atonal noise to make things even more unsettling. At one point a little Jesus Lizard and Godflesh creeps into the music as well, which you hear on "Four Flies", a track from their upcoming third album Existence is Horror.

Produced by the esteemed Sanford Parker, the new record will be released on January 8, 2016, and can be pre-ordered here.
