Tech death metallers, Hideous Divinity, release new track, “Acheron, Stream of Woe,” from new conceptual EP, LV-426, dropping April 23 via Century Media records. The EP includes two brand-new Hideous Divinity tracks, “Acheron, Stream of Woe” and “Chestburst” and a deathly cover version of Coheed and Cambria’s “Delirium Trigger.” The concept of the EP is a sub-narrative of the second Alien movie, directed by James Cameron.
Says Hideous Divinity:
“Acheron, Stream of Woe” marks another step in our sound progression. Just like James Horner’s original score, we searched for all the dramatic and dissonant elements our music could achieve. It has been a great time, both the songwriting and the studio time. We felt good, we felt at home… Oh, and this time is about Aliens. Not a coincidence, for sure.
A year has passed from the beginning of… all this. A year during which we all had to face our monsters. Very real ones… We chose to concentrate on the story of Rebeca ‘Newt’ Jorden, the 6-year old girl rescued on the alien infested planetoid LV-426 by Ellen Ripley. We live the story from her point of view, a mixture of childhood’s happy life and memories cut off by the alien attack.”
