Stoner and doom metal trio DUST PROPHET are now streaming their song “Dear Mrs Budd”. The song will be available on all streaming platforms on September 23rd and is from their upcoming album One Last Look Upon the Sky out on January 27th, 2023.
The band comments:
“This is about Albert Fish, AKA The Gray Man. More specifically it’s about his abduction and murder of Grace Budd. The crime is horrific and it makes my heart break for her parents.”
The Manchester, New Hampshire based outfit was born in 2018. Musically inspired by the likes of BLACK SABBATH, KYUSS, ELECTRIC WIZARD, TOOL and CLUTCH, they draw lyrically from classic literary works including the epic poem ‘Paradise Lost’, Gothic writers Flannery O’Connor, Ray Russell, and apocalyptic Biblical legends. Immersing in an eerie atmosphere, “A Storm of Time_Space part 1” begins the album with a foreboding tone. Apocalyptic moods run through the exploration of humanity’s successes and failings across DUST PROPHET‘s music. Deliciously distorted guitar tones power through “The Axe Falls”, and powerful vocals allude to the oncoming darkness. Sonorous bass notes resonate, bringing an immense sense of power to “Song 4”. Synthesizers and keys weave eerie elements among the heavy instruments and enhance the overall sound. Contrasting the delicate and the hard-hitting, “The High Capital” brings a striking opposition of styles to emphasize the theme of the track. “Bury Me Before Noon” unleashes a bewitching conclusion to One Last Look Upon the Sky. From haunting chants and demonic growls, to folk instrumentation and an unceasing gloom, it’s an enchanting experience.
DUST PROPHET are taking the stoner and doom scene by storm. Heavy rhythms, dynamic atmospheric composition and powerful execution give One Last Look Upon the Sky an epic edge that is sure to appeal to fans across the genre – assuming the world doesn’t end first.
