The Lion's Daughter Streaming New Song "Gods Much More Terrible"

Following the recent unveiling of latest long player, "A Black Sea," St. Louis doom metal night stalkers The Lion's Daughter spew forth "Gods Much More Terrible."

A fully collaborative effort between The Lion's Daughter and somber folk collective/fellow St. Louis occupants, Indian Blanket, "A Black Sea" is a torrid sound collage of dark and light recorded, mixed and mastered by Gabe Usery (Fister) at Encapsulated Studios in St. Louis.

Comments guitarist/vocalist Rick Giordano: "'Gods Much More Terrible' was actually the very first song that The Lion's Daughter ever wrote back in 2007. As we continued writing, songs became faster and more intricate, and this song got left in the dust. We always liked it but were never sure exactly what to do with it until [Indian Blanket vocalist/guitarist/banjoist] Joe Andert began playing his banjo along to an old recording. Together with Joe we built a new song on top of the skeleton of the first song we had ever written.

"The song is set in an old western town facing the apocalypse. It's the idea of civilized but somewhat primitive people facing a blazing disaster they cannot understand and placing responsibility on the only thing they know to fall on; God. Whether that refers to their Christian God, something more sinister, or just the power of Mother Nature is left open to interpretation. But the basic premise was something like the ending of High Plains Drifter with a small old town in a panic as it burns to the ground. It's a bit of an epic, but worth journeying through the inferno to the ending when the sky opens and swallows you whole. I also think that lyrically, it's a perfect blend of both bands... Old West meets the Apocalypse."
