Six Organs of Admittance has evolved into perhaps its most alien form yet on the shredding new single, “All That They Left You.”
With industrial clanging beats, nightmarishly distorted vocals and metallic guitar work that puts the temperature of the surface of the sun to shame, this is Six Organs’ Ben Chasny certainly at his most danceable and his most volatile. Fans and newcomers alike will find this song impossible to predict, as it breaks against any formula and genre label. This is the sound of an artist freely exploring the sounds that intrigue them, and seeking a tone that is entirely new and untrodden. Give it a listen below:
While Chasny admits to inspiration stemming from the likes of Alex Weird and Randy Rhoads, there’s so much more within the sound of this track. The more you listen to it, you begin to hear hints of groups like Suicide and Simply Saucer and upon deeper analysis, even non-musical influences, like machinery, growling engines and the ambience of a crowded late night dance floor. Six Organs of Admittance has grown significantly over the years, but this is certainly the most extreme transformation so far.
Based on how much of a surprise this track is, who knows what other kinds of tricks and new dimensions are awaiting on the next record. Click here to preorder your copy of The Veiled Sea from Three Lobed Recordings ahead of its June 25th drop date.
