SELF HYPNOSIS - New Lyric Video Released

UK's extreme progressive doom metal band Self Hypnosis, featuring members of Esoteric, have released a new single, "Contagion", from the forthcoming album, Contagion Of Despair, which will be out on 21st August via Svart Records.

Though Self Hypnosis are a new band, aficionados of the British extreme doom scene should need little introduction to the band members themselves. The project has its roots in Kris Clayton's long-standing, often-solo, Camel Of Doom outfit. Needing a partner to bring the concept to fruition, Kris approached Greg Chandler, whose long-established reputation for recording and production engineering - and, of course, musicianship, co-founder of legendary UK extreme doom pioneers Esoteric, as well - really does need no elaboration. Completing the line-up for the recording sessions was drummer Tom Vallely, though as a guest/session performer rather than as a full band member. As a professional musician, veteran performer with bands such as Sanctus Nex and Lychgate. The result of their combined endeavours is the full-length album Contagion Of Despair, which was recorded at Greg's Priory Studios using a variety of innovative techniques.

Influences that affected this recording range from Death to The Prodigy to Yes and Genesis, Godspeed You! Black Emperor to Godflesh and Ministry, Melvins and Akercocke, Laibach and YOB. But if you want to find out how those disparate elements fit together, then you'll probably need to listen to the end result. For now you can enjoy in the lyric video for "Contagion" in the player below. Link
