Swedish death dealers Usurpress have premiered their forthcoming album, The Regal Tribe, at Terrorizer. The record will officially be released this Friday, September 23, via Agonia Records and can be purchased here. The band said the following of the new effort:
“‘The Regal Tribe’, Usurpress’s third full length album, is a concept album written as one piece of music divided into ten parts. The music is written chronologically starting with the first part and then the second one and so forth. This approach to the song writing process allowed us to free ourselves a bit from the traditional song structures what perhaps have somewhat restricted us on our previous albums. Our aim was to make an album that was varied in tempo and style yet still sounding coherent and logical, an album that broadened our musical canvas yet stayed true to our roots. Every album we make is a preparation for the next one and ‘The Regal Tribe’ really is a great stepping stone for coming albums.
Lyrically, the album tells the story of a group of renegades from the regal immortal tribe set out to seek mortality and atone for the immoral way of life of their tribe. They call themselves ‘The Ordained’ and their leader is a woman known as ‘The Usurpress’. The narrator of the story is a member of their company and his tale is one of vanity, jealousy and betrayal”.
