Hailing from Louisiana, Electric Age, since forming in 2013, have taken the craft of their sludge and southern metal contemporaries , and incorporated the dynamics of more traditional metal, along with folk , doom and straight forward rock, to create the epic tale of their debut album “Sleep of the Silent King”.
This Southern Louisiana three piece outfit are equally at ease finding their groove within traditional song structures to extended cerebral doom riffing , while never forsaking the simple art of storytelling in the process.
The band says “ We are excited to be a part of the Argonauta family, and find solace in being with a label that truly respects the genre and shares in the love of this style of music and all it can offer. “
In their relatively short career of bringing their live performance to the people they have had the honor to share the stage with, among many others, sludge metal pioneers Crowbar, and thrash metal pioneers Anthrax.
“Sleep of the Silent King”, mixed and mastered by acclaimed producer Christopher “Zeuss” Harris, is their debut album, and is a conceptual and mythological journey through the threshold of time and consciousness, into the heart of darkness and divinity, through death and redemption, and finally into the inexorable void.
Argonauta has allowed them to tell their story to you, all there is left to do… is listen. “Sleep of the Silent King” will be available in CD from the 27th of February 2017, preorders run here.
