Today GunShyAssassin hosts the exclusive track premiere of “Medusa Howls With Wolves” from French atmospheric post-hardcore militia, GENERAL LEE. The tune comes in celebration of the band’s third full-length, Raiders Of The Evil Eye, unleashed TODAY via New Jersey-based Play The Assassin Records. Raiders Of The Evil Eye finds the band teetering on the edge of a molecular meltdown, further blurring the lines of post metal/hardcore. A seven-song thirty-three-minute explosion of extremes, Raiders Of The Evil Eye is chaotic yet controlled; extreme yet blissful.
Comments the band in a collective statement: “This new LP will strike you with frenetic vibrations; it will make you sing an anthem of a generation marked by the sadistic evolution of the modern world. It will appeal you with tension, sweat and bruises. GENERAL LEE‘s new power mixed with a lyrical background will nail you and shake you at the same time. Get ready to rob the evil eye with them.”
