THE LION'S DAUGHTER come storming out of the gates with their new album 'Existence is Horror'. The American trio from St. Louis, Missouri unleashes a crushing assault of dense frying riffs, pummeling rhythms, pumping bass-lines, and throat-shredding vocals supported by a seething intensity that borders on frightful. Tracks such as "The Horror Of Existence", "They're Already Inside", and the smoldering "Four Flies" illustrate a serious take on musical darkness. The Sanford Parker-produced (TOMBS, YOB, RWAKE, BRUTAL TRUTH) 'Existence is Horror' is without doubt a fitting soundtrack to the end of it all.
THE LION'S DAUGHTER were formed in 2007 by guitarist and vocalist Rick Giordano, drummer Erik Ramsier, and bassist Scott Fogelbach. The band was originally conceived out of hatred for the insincere and uninspired fodder choking the mainstream metal scene. They take notes from a myriad of metal's extremes, but live by no musical limitations and are driven to please no audience but themselves. THE LION'S DAUGHTER do not simply play as if they want to see this world end, but their sound rather implies that they want to be the ones to destroying it.
Since their inception, THE LION'S DAUGHTER have built a reputation as a formidable live force, sharing the stage with HIGH ON FIRE, PIG DESTROYER, EYEHATEGOD, TORCHE, MISERY INDEX, NACHTMYSTIUM, DARK FUNERAL, and more. True to their underground ethic, the band toured around the United States on the backs of several independent releases.
Their music comes with the obvious metal influences, with the expected anger and aggression and easily detectable undertones of NEUROSIS. Yet something of the creeping mood and atmosphere also reminds of groups like SKINNY PUPPY or even GOBLIN. Let THE LION'S DAUGHTER guide you on a dark musical ride through the mind that will let you experience why 'Existence Is Horror'!
