Hailing from Louisiana, Electric Age, since forming in 2013, have taken the craft of their sludge and southern metal contemporaries, and incorporated the dynamics of more traditional metal, along with folk, doom and straight forward rock, to create the epic tale of their debut album Sleep of the Silent King. This southern Louisiana three piece outfit are equally at ease finding their groove within traditional song structures to extended cerebral doom riffing, while never forsaking the simple art of storytelling in the process. In their relatively short career of bringing their live performance to the people they have had the honor to share the stage with, among many others, sludge metal pioneers Crowbar, and thrash metal pioneers Anthrax.
Sleep of the Silent King, mixed and mastered by acclaimed producer Christopher “Zeuss” Harris, is their debut album, and is a conceptual and mythological journey through the threshold of time and consciousness, into the heart of darkness and divinity, through death and redemption, and finally into the inexorable void.
Our editor Sander van den Driesche had a couple of listens to the album and said: “This is a great album and it’s catchy as hell. There are tons of great riffs, melodies and fantastic double guitar leads. Add the slick and heavy production and you have a must have Southern rock album. Check it out!”
Sleep of the Silent King will be released on February 27th through Argonauta Records and is available for pre-order through here. Ahead of its release you can now exclusively stream the whole album here:
