Earthless To Release New Album “Night Parade Of One Hundred Demons” In January

Earthless will be releaing their new album, “Night Parade Of One Hundred Demons,” on January 28. The effort will feature two songs including the 41-minute title track and a 20-minute song called “Death To The Red Sun.“ You can find a teaser for “Death To The Red Sun” below:

More information on the record was shared in a press release:

“The album and its title were inspired by an ancient Japanese legend in which a horde of demons, ghosts and other terrifying ghouls descend upon sleeping villages at night, once a year. Known as Hyakki Yagyo, or the “Night Parade of One Hundred Demons,” one version of the tale states that anyone who witnesses this otherworldly procession will die instantly—or be carried off by the creatures of the night. As a result, the villagers hide in their homes, lest they become victims of these supernatural invaders.”

Bassist Mike Eginton continued:

“My son and I came across the ‘Night Parade of One Hundred Demons’ in a book of traditional Japanese ghost stories. I like the idea of people hiding and being able to hear the madness but not see it. It’s the fear of the unknown.”

Drummer Mario Rubalcaba added:

“It definitely has a darker, almost evil kind of vibe compared to stuff we’ve done in the past. There’s more paranoia and noise, and some of Isaiah’s whammy-bar stuff kind of reminds me of these Jeff Hanneman moments in ‘Reign In Blood‘, where it just seems like everything is going to hell. It’s pretty fun.”

Drummer Mario Rubalcaba commented:

“Having the opportunity to set up out in the desert and play how we do was one of the best experiences ever actually. Adding to it the Mad Alchemy liquid lights and the surroundings made for a very satisfying day/night of jamming. Thankful for Giant Rock Records preserving the night by filming and recording this. I hope people can enjoy the release as much as we did doing it.”

Earthless Begin Recording New Album

Earthless have hit the studio to begin the recording process for their new album. The band commented:

Earthless Release Cover Of Black Sabbath’s “Never Say Die”

Earthless have released their cover of Black Sabbath‘s “Never Say Die.” This track is from Magnetic Eye Records‘ new Black Sabbath tribute album “Best Of Black Sabbath [Redux],” which will be released on October 30, along with a tribute to Black Sabbath’s “Vol. 4.“

Earthless commented:

“We were originally going to record ‘After Forever’ or ‘Lord of this World’ but those songs, which are two of our favorites, didn’t really fit our style of playing. Mario came in with ‘Never Say Die’ and we all agreed that a faster pace song would suit us better.

Also it was kind of cool to record a track that wasn’t from the first four, or six Ozzy era records. We recorded the song in our buddy Gabe’s living room, had him play a little organ, had Brendan Dellar from Sacri Monti come in and recorded the vocals. It was a very cool collaborative effort with friends. Those moments don’t happen too often.

Thank to MER for asking us to be part of this tribute to one of the greatest bands ever to grace our ears.”
