Manchester, New Hampshire Dust Prophet released their new single The High Capital on August 19th 2021. The song is inspired by John Milton’s Paradise Lost and will be released on 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 Wizards, Tool and Clutch, Dust Prophet is poised to take the stoner & doom metal world by storm.
Guitarist//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».
