German doom/sludge metal quartet CONFUSION MASTER’s new video for the mammoth “Viking X” Is out.
The song serves as the new single from the band’s impending second LP, Haunted, set for November release through Exile On Mainstream.
Haunted was recorded during the encompassing Winter desolation of 2020, captured by Lutz Baumann at various live sessions in multiple rooms and practice studios, after which it was mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate, Sunn O))), Pelican). Clearly not to be mistaken for a love and peace affair but channeling hardcore anger in its purity, the result is a bonafide gain in horror cosmic doom with a strong Lovecraftian existential swirl, as reflected in the stunning cover illustration by Antonio Ilievsky/Pig Hands. Fans of Sleep, Ufomammut, Electric Wizard, Yob, Goatsnake, and Black Shape Of Nexus should not miss CONFUSION MASTER.
The lead track on Haunted, “Viking X” is a thundering, groove heavy, ten-and-a-half-minute movement that encompasses the CONFUSION MASTER sound, the band offering with the release of its video, “The layers of human condition rightly placed anger against evil. Those of us who choose differently never surrender.”
