Dark and dangerous, with a cinematic quality that rises throughout their relentless groove and into the fabric of their cold, ever-expanding universe, "Talos" offers some outstanding doom/drone thrills, exploring at the same time the boundaries of the genre: heavy guitars, psychedelic black metal, sludge and drone elements merge seamlessly, while a very special guest, the legend of traditional Cretan music Psarantonis, sings and plays the lyra on the key track Talos Awakens (Ο Τάλως ξυπνά). If Automaton’s debut album "Echoes of Mount Ida" provided the setting, now "Talos" is where the real action is!
Recorded at Electric Zen Studios Athens, June 2017. Produced by Automaton and Mike Kavvadias. Engineered and mixed by George Leodis. Mastered by Brad Boatwright at Audiosiege Studio.
