T.J. Childers – Inter Arma – Transfiguration + Tour Dates

After already having taken forward-thinking extreme music to unprecedented heights over the course of their short but propulsive career, drummer T.J Childers and Richmond’s Inter Arma are back with another opus of epic proportions. Like the band’s previous works, the new album ‘Paradise Gallows’ is direct and foreboding while maintaining a nuanced, artful perspective. Inter Arma‘s signature palette of dissonant high-end and abyssal low-end has been augmented with swathes of thick, impressionistic melody that lend ‘Paradise Gallows ‘a truly biblical sense of scale, both lyrically and in terms of the album’s sonic content. Harsh and acoustic passages (including the band’s first-ever foray into clean vocals) spar with complex rhythmic structures across nine sweeping tracks over 71 minutes of expansive, progressive heaviness. Dense, funereal, and richly evocative, ‘Paradise Gallows’ is a vibrant blend of doom, post-metal, sludge, avant-garde, black and death metal, and is a singular and powerful new addition to the band’s already monumental discography.
