Léo Isnard – The Great Old Ones – When the Stars Align – Drum Play-through. French black metal phenoms The Great Old Ones return with their new album ‘EOD: A Tale Of Dark Legacy.’ Steeped in nightmarish Lovecraftian lore, the band once again draw inspiration from the iconic writer to produce cold, gruesome pitch-black metal. Colossal tracks such as “The Shadow over Innsmouth,” “Mare Infinitum,” and “When the Stars Align” and more emanate tense, horrific atmospheres in a flurry of utterly extreme metal. Reinforced by macabre themes and morose subject matter, The Great Old Ones have made ‘EOD…” a truly grim journey and, in doing so, one of the year’s most compelling black metal releases.
Some words from Léo: “So for this drum play-through, I used my Pearl Masterworks. It’s a 10″, 12″, 16″, 18″ set with a 22″ kick . My snare is a 13-ply Tama SLP G-Maple. I used some Sabian and Zildjian cymbals. (I really like to put one or two splashes between my two crashes). My twin pedal is an Axis Longboard which works perfectly with my PedalTrigger system.”
“I’m proudly Endorsed by PedalTrigger and Serial Drummer.”
About the song: “It’s the shorter track of our new album. For me, it’s a perfect synthesis of all I like to play in my band: Doom parts, blast beats, and some space to put more personal stuff. And of course, nothing is better than fast blast beats before the end of the song!”
