Wisconsin manic hardcore trio Zebras (Those Poor Bastards, Call Me Lightning) have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, The City Of Sun, over at Tone Madison. Titled “The Turning Of The Bones”, the new tune conjures fierce, spiraling riffs that assault the ear drums mercilessly. The track almost sounds a Slayer song played by members of Botch. The band offered the following comments on the track:
“The Turning Of The Bones,” “It’s about getting old and sick and suffering a slow death. There’s nothing you can do about that but you can consider various death rituals from different cultures. Tibetan sky burials, the Buddhist Monk’s self-mummification, or Famidihana (‘the turning of the bones’), where your friends and family dig you up after seven years of rotting so they can dance with your bones.”
Listen for yourself after the break.
The City Of Sun will be released on July 14 via Secret Records.
