Exclusive Track Premiere: “Scornstar” by Arsis
Little know fact: the Italian poet Dante Alighieri could see into the future. Sure, you could argue that the below passage from the Divine Comedy, which was composed some seven-hundred years ago, is a description of Hell…
There sighs, complaints, and ululations loud
Resounded through the air without a star,
Whence I, at the beginning, wept thereat.
Languages diverse, horrible dialects,
Accents of anger, words of agony,
And voices high and hoarse, with sound of hands,
Made up a tumult that goes whirling on
For ever in that air for ever black,
Even as the sand doth, when the whirlwind breathes.
And I, who had my head with horror bound,
Said: “Master, what is this which now I hear?”
…but we mean come ON, clearly, Dante actually intended it to be a review of Arsis’ new album, Unwelcome. And as one listen to Unwelcome‘s first single, “Scornstar,” will surely make it clear, it’s an extremely accurate review. Accents of anger, words of agony, and air for ever black indeed.
