High Command announce new album, share first single
Official press release:
High Command return with their second full length album Eclipse of the Dual Moons, produced by Seth Manchester and arriving November 25th via Southern Lord.
Swords and metal go hand in hand— that's what crossover thrash band High Command say, having turned heads with their debut album Beyond The Wall of Desolation (2019).
The band shared the following:
Our love for the bay area in the 80's is certainly no secret. Besides some of the more obvious influences we have, we were much more comfortable exploring some of the less obvious stuff we hinted at with the first record. Particularly traditional heavy metal (Dio, Mercyful Fate) the south's interpretation of the bay area (Exhorder, Obituary, Nasty Savage, Devastation, Rigor Mortis) first wave black metal (Bathory, Hellhammer/Celtic Frost). Of course all of this executed with the discharge, Cro-mags, Sacrilege DNA that runs through our veins.
People would also be surprised to hear we drew quite a bit of inspiration from the music of Ennio Morricone, especially in regards to writing some more of the epic, grandiose passages and chord progressions.
