Virginia deathcore act Of Tyrants stream the first single from their debut LP.
Next spring, Virginia Beach deathcore up-and-comers Of Tyrants
will release their debut full-length, A Step Into Darkness
, through Flagship Recordings. That's obviously months away, but fans don't have to wait any longer for some new music, because today we're premiering the first new song from the outing, a blistering track titled "Confessor."
Vocalist Chris Lindsay had this to say about the song and its lyrics:
"I was inspired to write the lyrics for 'Confessor' after reading a series of novels known as The Sword of Truth. The concepts and characters in the song are based off of events that take place throughout the books. Confessors have the power to control their victim's will with just one simple touch. The victim is committed to the Confessor's power instantly, and will do anything to serve and protect the Confessor who touched them. In addition, as part of the curse, they fall in love with the one who "confessed" them, making the bond (or curse) of servitude even stronger. In the series, this power is mostly used for good, and a Confessor is destined to help a man who becomes the 'Seeker of Truth' on his journey. I have always admired Confessors not only for the burden of power they are forced to carry, but for their beauty, resilience in and out of battle, and their high moral standards."
