Emerging rock artist Black Pope has just released the third single from his debut EP, a seven-minute horror epic called ‘Demon Stomp’. The song is a nostalgia-tinged monster truck with tight instrumentation, wild drum fills and some serious dark swagger.
The lyrics tell the story of a young person witnessing a demonic possession on a dance floor.
“I guess the song is about not belonging anywhere, and the emotional chaos that can cause,” the songwriter explains. “We all find a balance of how much we’re willing to go along with other people’s expectations, but without a strong sense of self, it can be easy to get lost. All that, plus you’re 16 and possessed by the Devil.”
The track was recorded in Monique Studios in Cork, Ireland with producer Cian Riordan (who mixed St. Vincent’s latest album, “Daddy’s Home”) and is the third single from Black Pope’s upcoming EP “Music for Girls Vol. I”, which is set for a summer release.
Black Pope’s ‘Demon Stomp’ is out now.
