Sober Truth have just released a vinyl from the new album
„Locust – Lunatic Asylum.“ The fourth studio album of the Prog Groove Metal Band from the Köln / Bonner Raum, produced by TaktArt, offers its listeners a varied journey through various moods and interesting contents over 46 minutes.
The lyrics deal, among other things, with themes about one’s own reality, the perception of one’s own environment and the questioning of one’s own actions. Topics such as „procrastination“ and questionable life targets are addressed. The album does not answer any questions. It does, however, encourage us to think further and deliberately leaves plenty of room for our own interpretations. Musically, the new album cannot easily be classified in a typical genre.
This album is the result of the band’s musical evolution and cautiously enters the genre of Prog Groove Metal. The combination of melancholic sounds, energetic guitar riffs and driving drums remind us of Progressive Rock / Metal, Groove Metal and Thrash Metal. In addition, subtly used orchestras, choirs and other samples enrich the soundscape. Each of the 12 tracks tell their own story. One thing can be said in certainty : The journey continues …
„The name of this album is derived from our song ‚Leave the Locust in the Lunatic Asylum“. We are deliberately playing with the biblical portrait of the Locust, which can relate to a variety of personal experiences and problems, such as the excessive consumption of certain media, new problems in the digital age or perhaps the negative experience of an extremely bad relationship. Each listener will recognise his own story here. The title of this song inspires and recommends that this „Plague“ is simply to be left in a lunatic asylum. In an interpretation of this story, we have named this lunatic asylum „Locust Lunatic Asylum“
