Catalog no.: SERC0000051

Item ID: 471256

What if Talos, the mythical metal giant of Crete and archetype automaton, awakens in the modern era to fight injustice and protect the innocent? This is the narrative of Automaton's second full length release, a carefully crafted concept album spanning 48 minutes in which Talos spreads pure catastrophe.
Dark and dangerous, with a cinematic quality that rises throughout their relentless groove and into the fabric of their cold, ever-expanding universe, 'Talos' offers some outstanding doom/drone thrills, exploring at the same time the boundaries of the genre: heavy guitars, psychedelic black metal, sludge and drone elements merge seamlessly, while a very special guest, the legend of traditional Cretan music Psarantonis, sings and plays the lyra on the key track 'Talos Awakens'. If Automaton's debut album 'Echoes Of Mount Ida' provided the setting, now 'Talos' is where the real action is!

Also available: TALOS (BLACK) (LP), TALOS (CLEAR) (LP).
