Today Opium Warlords premiere the new track "The Wind is a Gift From a Distant Friend" on CvltNation.com. The track hails from the band's forthcoming "We Meditate Under the Pussy in the Sky," set for international release on November 30th through Svart Records.
Svart Records has announced November 30th as the release date for Opium Warlods' "We Meditate Under the Pussy in the Sky." Featuring ex-Reverend Bizarre mainman Sami Albert Hynninen, "We Meditate Under the Pussy in the Sky" is the band's second album, and first for Svart. The artwork and track listing are available below, and the following press release was also issued:
"After three years of mental purgatory and dwelling in the sewers of the netherworld, Opium Warlords returns to life. We Meditate Under the Pussy in the Sky is a daring and demanding glimpse of one person’s private hell/heaven, but because of its un-belonging quality, it also deals with the layers of human life that we all share: the primal elements that are the same in all of us.
"Instead of being bound to one tradition or context, this music is global in a pure and un-degenerated sense of the word, and is meant to be heard by everyone – beyond all the scenes, groups, and genres – who has sensitivity, courage, and willingness to open up their hearts and souls and to literally gaze at and (to be precise) to become one with extreme light and darkness. It is an invitation to worlds inside the artist, but also the listener himself/herself.
"Phobos and Deimos, Fear and Dread, are the moons of Mars, The God of War. Imagine what kind of cosmic music might vibrate from there to our Earth? Even if not perhaps 'entertainment' per se, it may open up gateways to a different kind of luxuries of leisure, relaxation, and self-consciousness, if you just allow it to access your life."
