On September 16th, Los Angeles-based doom weavers, Ides of Gemini, will unleash Old World New Wave, the direct follow-up to their 2012 Constantinople debut. The doom put forth in the new teaser trailer for the upcoming album, seen in the player above, is more haunting than your typical doom metal. Yes, it’s still dark as hell, but it feels more spiritual than evil, if you get my meaning.
The teaser White .was directed and produced by singer/bassist Sera Timms and shot by Timms with drummer Kelly Johnston-Gibson. The clip is absolutely haunting, and maybe even a bit pagan with its incorporation of nature. It’s a confusing piece to look at because in terms of quality it’s up to today’s standards, but the effects and the movement is very 1930s, not unlike the film
Old World New Wave was recorded at Valley Recording in Burbank, California, engineered and mixed by Chris Rakestraw (Danzig), mastered by Grammy award winning producer Matt Hyde (Slayer), and boasts the striking hand-drawn cover art of Johnston-Gibson.
Ides of Gemini Are:
Sera Timms (vocals, bass)
guitarist Jason Bennett (guitars)
