EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: WHITE ARMS OF ATHENA, “ASTRODRAMA”
White Arms of Athena are one of my most favoritest unsigned bands. I first spotlighted them back in June of 2009, heard rave reviews about their live show from the dudes in The Binary Code [who played with them this past January in their hometown of Dallas], and last, but certainly not least, the dudes took serious care of us when the Heavy Metal Road Trip rolled through Dallas in March by providing us with some serious herbage.
On that fateful roadtrip stop in March the guys played us a few tracks from the album they’d just wrapped up with producer Jamie King, and to say the music blew our minds would be understating it; everyone there on the bus with us, including some grizzled metal industry vets, was seriously impressed.
Now that album is about to be released, and we’re proud to be able to exclusively premiere one of its tracks, the progressive masterpiece “Astrodrama.” This is some serious music, and the band has a bright future ahead of them; they probably won’t stay unsigned for long. Check out two more songs from the record on White Arms of Athena’s MySpace.
