The World is Quiet Here Unleash Ferocious New Track, “White Sun”

Have you ever watched a video on the MetalSucks YouTube channel? If so, you’re already familiar with The World is Quiet Here, the progressive metal act who graciously allowed us to use a 10-second clip of their song “The Vagrant: Inanimate” as the intro music on every video we’ve put out for the past couple of years.

But now’s your chance to get acquainted with the band on a whole new level, as they’ve just released a fresh single, “White Sun.” The single features new vocalist Lou Kelly (as well as a guest guitar solo from Ivan Chopik of Painted In Exile), and the band is over the moon about Kelly’s involvement. Indeed, this song is my first time hearing him, and I’m getting big-time Mike Patton vibes in terms of versatility, timbre and power. Dude can rip it. Combined with the band’s groovy, jazz-inflected progressive metal (think: Between the Buried and Me, Opeth, Sikth, etc.), this new song shows that The World is Quiet Here are destined for capital-b Big Things.

The band comments:

“We would like to introduce to you Lou Kelly, who is providing vocals for our new album. For the uninitiated, Lou has been making monstrous, erratic, eclectic, goo-filled music for years, and we have been fans for a very long time. When we found ourselves without a vocalist, Lou was at the very top of our list. We were over the moon when we reached out and he agreed to help.

“He is such a delight to work with, and we have been loving hearing all of the things he has come up with, stuff we never would have been able to do or think of. We promise there are no limits to what he can do, and ‘White Sun’ is just a taste. Do yourself a favor and find his music and give it a listen (‘We Got a Runner’ is a band favorite). He is a rare talent and we are beyond lucky to work with him.”

Listen to “White Sun” below. We’ll keep you posted on The World is Quiet Here’s upcoming album.
