One-man instrumental black metal act 10:13 will release debut album ‘Result of an Iron Age’ on January 24, 2019. The official video for opening track Oathbade is available at youtu.be/EINkKGmYvoc. The track features a solo from guest guitarist Mario Romero and is also available for streaming/purchase at this location.
From the mind of multi-instrumentalist/composer Neil Carter and inclusive of a guest appearance by Derek Sherinian (PLANET X), ‘Result of an Iron Age’ is a bleak, futuristic soundtrack to humanity’s descent into a hellish, post-apocalyptic world. Indeed, the album’s 11 tracks form a cohesive whole, a musical journey that transcends the common constructs of depressive black metal by seamlessly incorporating progressive elements, not the least of which includes rhythmic complexity, obsidian keyboard layering, penetrating samples, and even the periodic use harmonica to create an immersive experience that twists, churns, and chills to the bone.
Carter will be performing a series of local one-man shows with him serving as drummer playing along with the album.
