NEWS: Beyond the Styx hit back with “Overload”!

The second preview of the 4th February via Season Of Mist releasing album “Sentence“, the third in all, from Frenchmen Beyond the Styx has landed in the form of “Overload“. Recorded in July 2021 at Pole Nord Studio in Blois, France by Christian Donaldson (Despised Icon, Get The Shot, Cryptopsy) who also engineered, mixed and mastered, it’s one of ten new cuts and of those that are left Luis Ifer (Teething), Guillaume Duhau (Final Shodown, Happy Face) and Vincent Peingnart-Mancini (The Butcher’s Rodeo, Aqme) all lend their throats…

Speaking of “Overload,” BTSTYX vocalist Emile Duputié illustrates: “This new song is a kind of testament to my experience with confinement. Namely, the ordeal represented by this period of incarceration where almost everything was forbidden to us except to work. Ubiquitous fear of the virus, asphyxiated by media pressure, oppressed by work, diminished by isolation, and confused by the absence of space-time. Fortunately, we were still allowed to think between 2 conservative and conspiratorial salvos.

“They have tried to delude us with a new world capable of learning from its past mistakes, blah, blah, blah… Business is business. Economic growth always needs more economic growth. The system is just trying to save what it feels is most right to save, which is itself. Not the planet, not living beings, not even the harmony of peoples. Just the capitalist, individualistic, self-destructive system.

“Work, Consume, Shut up! That’s all I take away from my last few “non-essential” years. Overload!”
