Modern blackened metal band THE LION’S DAUGHTER have announced a string of dates with INAEONA. The trek begins on July 6 in St. Louis, and sees the band traveling throughout Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Tennessee. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.
THE LION’S DAUGHTER is touring in support of ‘Existence is Horror’. The album, which has been called “first-rate American doom. Of course, by that I mean that which sprung from ‘Through Silver in Blood’ rather than ‘Epicus Doomicus Metallicus’: brute force takes precedence over melody, but songcraft still remains thoroughly intact.” (Decibel) is available across several physical formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop, and is streaming now at the LION’S DAUGHTER Bandcamp page.
The artwork for ‘Existence is Horror’, painted by acclaimed artist Paolo Girardi (INQUISITION, MANILLA ROAD, and more) and track list can be seen below:
- Mass Green Extinctus
- Nothing Lies Ahead
- Dog Shaped Man
- Four Flies
- Midnight Glass
- The Fiction in the Dark
- A Cursed Black End
- They’re Already Inside
- The Horror of Existence
THE LION’S DAUGHTER recently premiered the track “Nothing Lies Ahead” at Bloody-Disgusting, alongside an extensive feature about the band’s lyrical and conceptional relationship with the horror film genre.
THE LION’S DAUGHTER also recently saw the release of a drum play-through for the track “Apathy Worm”. The video is streaming now at Sick Drummer Magazine’s official YouTube channel.“Apathy Worm”, the rest of the band’s discrography, and ‘Existence is Horror’ is available at THE LION’S DAUGHTER’s Bandcamp page.
THE LION’S DAUGHTER was formed in 2007 by guitarist/vocalist Rick Giordano, drummer Erik Ramsier, and bassist Scott Fogelbach. The band was originally conceived out of a hatred for the insincere and uninspired fodder choking the mainstream metal scene. They take notes from a myriad of metal’s extremes, but live by no musical limitations and are driven to please no audience but themselves. The band doesn’t play as if it simply wants to see the world end; it sounds like they want to be the ones to destroy it.
Since their inception, THE LION’S DAUGHTER have built a reputation as a formidable live force, sharing the stage with HIGH ON FIRE, PIG DESTROYER, EYEHATEGOD, TORCHE, MISERY INDEX, NACHMYSTIUM, DARK FUNERAL, and more. Staying true to their underground ethic, the band have toured around the country on the backs of several independent releases. The band have won the St. Louis Riverfront Times reader’s poll as “Best Metal Band of the Year” several times over.
