Inspired lyrically by the epic poem Paradise Lost by John Milton, The High Capital is the first single featuring the revised lineup for Dust Prophet.
Dust Prophet offers heavy riffs; haunting vocals; fuzzy tones; weird sounds; monstrous beats. Take our hand and walk through the smoke… Dust Prophet will release their upcoming album which is set to come out in spring of 2022.
Drawing inspiration from humanity’s fragile existence, as well as genre-defining bands like Black Sabbath, Kyuss, Electric Wizard, Tool, and Clutch is poised to take the stoner & doom metal world by storm.
Guitarist and vocalist Otto Kinzel commented:
«I have always loved apocalyptic literature and the vivid imagery that comes from it. Paradise Lost is a legendary piece of literature that has inspired countless artists, and I’m no exception. I wanted to write lyrics that explored the regret of our decisions, and that “oh I really screwed up“ realization that comes with self-reflection and hindsight. You can see how Lucifer goes through this process before finally accepting his fate, which is a fate he brought upon himself. Even though it’s a work of fiction, I relate to that feeling, as I’m sure many of us do. So lyrically The High Capital is about the story of the Fallen Angel, but it’s also about my own personal regrets and having to accept that I have made my own fate«C».
