Select Funds to Fight Dolphin Slaughter in Taiji via Sea Shepherd
New Concept Album ‘Black Snow’ Hits Stores on April 29, 2014
Italian alt/prog metal band KLOGR is pleased to reveal a brand new track today, exclusively via HeavyBlogisHeavy.com. The track, entitled ‘Guilty and Proud’, is available for streaming now at this location. The track is themed upon social awareness – regarding how those in charge making regrettable decisions are publicly heralded while the truth in their choices are hidden from plain sight.
“Truth drowns everyday
Voiceless, alone, bleeding black tones
Proof found a thousand ways
Faults still are crowned, Common sense is lost”
Listen now via HeavyBlogisHeavy.com and stay tuned for more music coming soon from KLOGR!
‘Guilty and Proud’ appears on KLOGR’s powerful upcoming full-length album Black Snow hitting stores on April 29, 2014 via ZETA FACTORY for physical and Believe for digital. Recorded between Zeta Factory and Green River studios, the album was produced by KLOGR frontman and mastermind Rusty and Tancredi Barbuscia. Black Snow will be released in a special digital edition including the band’s 2011’s Till You Turn EP and Ground Zero 11-11-11 Live. Check out an album trailer here: http://youtu.be/eH787F2MTBM
A few weeks ago, KLOGR revealed another single ‘Zero Tolerance’, which takes inspiration from the dolphin slaughter taking place every year in the bay of Taiji, Japan. The track creates awareness about the killing and captivity of these animals caused by men for unnecessary reasons. The track is available now for purchase via iTunes in the U.S. here.
KLOGR actively supports non-profit marine wildlife conservation organization Sea Shepherd in defense and protection of marine wild-life along with artists like Aerosmith, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Gojira, to name a few. All funds earned from the first 500 ‘Zero Tolerance’ track downloads via iTunes will be distributed to Sea Shepherd to fight against dolphin slaughter in Taiji.
A music video for ‘Zero Tolerance’ will soon be released (directed by Davide Cilloni of Eklipse Design) featuring images from a Sea Shepherd documentary.
KLOGR is a massive force to be reckoned with. Recognized around the globe for melding their heavy alternative and progressive influences, the band captivates fans with a fresh sound currently missing from the metal world. An immense anathema against the destructive acts operated by human kind, the band’s new album Black Snow delivers colossal tunes supported by flawless production. The album is a powerful work of raw rage— reaching towering and aggressive points while leaving room for beautiful, charismatic melodies and hypnotic atmospheres. The lyrics on Black Snow are about a broken world where a prompt reaction is mandatory and there's no room for hesitation, faking or excuses.
Stay tuned for more exclusives coming from KLOGR in the coming weeks surrounding the impending release of Black Snow.
