Lalu Posts New Song "Bast" Online

Metal Injection is today hosting a stream of the magnanimous track "Bast," the newest song to be released from French progressive composer Vivien Lalu's pending solo full-length, "Atomic Ark."

Listen to the track in the SoundCloud player below. The song showcases the more ominous elements of Lalu, utilizing low-end vocal contributions from Peter Wildoer (Darkane/James LaBrie).

The track "Slaughtered," featuring solos from keyboardist Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater, Liquid Tension Experiment) and guitarist Marco Sfogli (James LaBrie), was previously posted onlien and can be heard at this location.

"Atomic Ark" is confirmed for release via Sensory Records on September 6th in Europe and September 10th in North America. The more than fifty-minute opus was fully conceived and composed by Lalu, the composer having enlisted an all-star lineup of vocalist Martin LeMar (Mekong Delta), bassist Mike LePond (SymphonyX), guitarist Simone Mularoni (DGM) and drummer Virgil Donati (PlanetX), in addition to countless guest contributions, to complete the album.

In an early review of "Atomic Ark" last week, Metal Injection stated: "The catchy bits will be stuck in your head for days on end, the heavy parts will never not make you bang your head, the beautiful parts will always be touching, the ethereal and dream-like parts will always evoke images in your head, and the musicianship will never not impress. There is absolutely no reason anyone shouldn't own this record upon its release."
