Tau Cross Reveals New Album "Messengers Of Deception" Details; Posts New Music Video "Burn With Me" Online

Tau Cross will release their third album, "Messengers Of Deception," on December 4 via Heretical Music/Easy Action Records. A video for the single "Burn With Me" can be found below.

The album is an epic journey both lyrically and sonically, as Rob ‘The Baron’ Miller grapples with the cosmological origins of evil and deception and the way they have manifested in our World over millennia.

Miller caused some controversy just over a year ago when Relapse Records cancelled the release of the album’s first incarnation and the band split apart at the same time. He stated the intention to continue regardless at that time, and has re-recorded every instrument, re-worked several of the songs and also added new material along the way.

The Baron had this to say: "I considered the material to be an important and critical part of my development as a writer, but also as a condensation of some of the more esoteric ideas I have been following in recent years, particularly since the recent incarnation of Amebix and the consequent result that has become Tau Cross. My interest in Gnostic Cosmology, occult magick traditions and the links with the UFO and folk tale phenomena have led to a kind of synthesis and a connecting of dots that sees its full scope and import in this most recent work. There are themes within Messengers Of Deception that should lead the listener to some serious food for thought."

The material has all been improved on significantly, along with the production, to re-assert Tau Cross as one of the more original, important and thoughtful bands in the field of punk/metal. New members The Kurgan on guitar and Talamh behind the drums have brought an overall heavier and darker hue to the work, which in this case is richer than anything Tau cross has so far embarked upon.

When he was outed as a holocaust denier... sounds like they missed that out of the press release.
