Indianapolis-based sludge/rock riff-mongers DEVIL TO PAY have released their fourth full-length album, Fate is Your Muse, today on Ripple Music. The band’s first recorded output since 2009’s Heavily Ever After, Fate is Your Muse is now available on CD and vinyl formats at www.ripple-music.com.
To celebrate the release of Fate is Your Muse, DEVIL TO PAY and Ripple Music have joined forces with TheObelisk.net to stream the album in its entirety. Listen at this location.
Fate is Your Muse is an introspective lyrical journey that careens from the metaphysical, to the absurd, to the pragmatic (and back again), all set to bone crushing heaviness wrapped in elaborate vocal melodies and elegant guitar phrases. Exploring topics such as reincarnation, the end of days, and the thin veil between reality and fantasy, the Indianapolis foursome create a rare musical experience; one that will have heavy rock fans returning for the primal emotional riffs, as well as the complex and heady lyrical content.
DEVIL TO PAY released a video for the single “This Train Won’t Stop,” which was premiered by The Obelisk in conjunction with the end of the Mayan Baktun on December 21st. The lyrics are about the continual false prophesizing of the world’s end. Check out the video at this location.
“I feel the need to go and dance round a pole. Fate Is Your Muse is the soundtrack to every seedy strip club you ever wanted to go to.” [4.5/5] – TBFM Online
“Fate Is Your Muse mixes hard riffing and suave grooves into a twelve track fat album of boot stomping, head moshing magnificence that you didn’t even know had been missing from your life.” – TheMidlandsRocks.com
