UK five piece Mask Of Judas have released a new video for ‘The Conspirator’, taken from the forthcoming album ‘The Mesmerist’. Check it out above.
Jo Challen, vocals, says this about the album The Mesmerist
“The Mesmerist’s ongoing theme is modern day society and how our lives are largely controlled by illusive influencers we are compelled to follow: Politically, socially, religiously, and artistically. It’s a reflection of a reality in which our own free-thinking, beliefs and tastes are largely modelled and modified by a cohort of mesmerists, be they elusive, or starkly visible popular figures. It aims to provoke us to question our blind beliefs and everything we think and feel without questioning.
Sam Bell, guitarist, says this about the new single The Conspirator
“The Conspirator is a great example of Mask of Judas’s core sound. Heavy and melodic technical riffs coupled with aggressive vocals which effortlessly meet with melodic and emotive RnB flavours all wrapped up into a pop structure with buckets of groove. I wrote the original guitar parts when I was messing around with some bebop and funk inspired riffs on the 7 string. Reece re-enforces the melodic lines in the riffs with his tight guitar harmonies. Jo came up with some incredible vocal melodies over the top which I would have never imagined which transformed the song yet again. Jof and George further solidified the song by providing punchy catchy grooves. Oh…and I got to do a guitar solo! (of course!) I am proud of this song!”
The Mesmerist was mixed and mastered by acclaimed producer Jacob Hansen, best known for his work with the likes of Volbeat, Xerath, Epica, Aborted and more.
The Mesmerist will be released on 11th May 2018.
