Modern blackened metal band THE LION’S DAUGHTER have released their new album, ‘Existence is Horror’ today worldwide. The album is streaming now at Revolver Magazine.
‘Existence is Horror’, 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 digitally at the Season of Mist Bandcamp page.
THE LION’S DAUGHTER have announced an album release show on Jan. 9 in St. Louis at the Firebird. The show will see support from BLACK FAST, FISTER, and HELL NIGHT. Following their record release, THE LION’S DAUGHTER will support MINSK on Jan. 29 in Peoria, IL. More information can be found below.

THE LION’S DAUGHTER are currently streaming three other tracks off their new album. The crushing album closer titled “The Horror of Existence” is streaming here, and the dark, brooding track, titled “Four Flies”, is streaming here. The band most recently premiered “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 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 pre-orders for their forthcoming new album titled ‘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.
