High Command to release their debut full length, Beyond The Wall Of Desolation, incoming via Southern Lord on 27th September is in the band’s own words, “five friends coming together to create the sonic equivalent of a barbarian horde.”
High Command’s lyrical world, created by vocalist Kevin Fitzgerald, is steeped in lore and savagery, heavily inspired by fantasy based warfare, and in the band’s own words “boundless quests frozen in the aeons of time and space hacked out of ice and transcribed in lightning. Beyond the thin vail of sanity lies the forgotten age of mysticism and heroes”.
Their studio choice for such proceedings was the legendary Machines with Magnets in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and Seth Manchester, the head engineer, worked tirelessly for the week High Command were there.
Listen again to High Command’s “Visions from the Blade”.
