VERLORNER (DAATH) Streams Jazzy New Song "Devil In The Room," Debut Album In April
Guitarist Emil Werstler (Daath, ex-Chimaira) officially launched his experimental jazzy project Verlorner last June, and now we get to hear the fruits of his labors. Werstler successfully crowdfunded $14,883 for the Verlorner debut album, which now has a release date of April 6. The album was produced and mixed by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Cannibal Corpse), and Werstler says he'll be taking the band out on the road come April as well. Though he also says it'll be a much more improvisational show, which should be awesome!
Here's how Werstler describes the debut song "Devil In The Room."
"The proclaimed idea of our current musical climate as being 'impossible' has led to the creation of safe music with a lack of depth in narrative. The creation of this record was inspired by my general lack of interest towards what music has become. It seems to be more about the social currency of just being involved, not creating something new.
"The debut track is entitled 'Devil In The Room' and is heavily influenced by the harmony of Manouche Jazz and late 80’s era Depeche Mode. It was the final song written for the record and features a cello trio over beats with a solid guitar performance through out. Although the song is unique instrumentally, 'Devil In The Room' is an accurate depiction of the record’s sound as a whole."
