CHILD OF CAESAR impress with sinister Gothic Metal masterpiece “Spirit & Liberation”

Mastermind and guitarist André Marcussen has stepped out of the shadows of the past with his project CHILD OF CAESAR and recorded the sinister follow-up to 2015’s album “Love In Black” with the current line-up. Heavily 90s-influenced Gothic Metal paired with wistful melancholy and inner strife forms the basis. On the new monument “Spirit & Liberation” with its eleven songs also, Punk and Black Metal influences play a role and thus adding raw and wild moments to the foundation. The voice of the new singer Patrick Pagliaro fits ideally to this. Sometimes scratchy-driving, sometimes gloomy-melodic, but always with the right pinch of audacious energy. The band already provided a first glimpse at the beginning of 2021 with the unfortunately prophetic anti-war lyric video for “Your Eyes On Me”. The recording and mixing of the album, which will be released via Dr. Music Records on 08/26/2022, was done at guitarist Christopher F. Kassad’s Tones & Tunes Studio, and for the mastering, the musicians once again entrusted Mika Jussila of Finnvox Studio (Amorphis, Solstafir, Nightwish). For the artwork, the band leader relied on the outstanding artist Eliran Kantor, who caused a sensation with impressive cover oil paintings for bands such as Kreator, Tristania or My Dying Bride. The songs of CHILD OF CAESAR are an equally sinister feast for the ears of Goth fans and metalheads who miss the ferocity of Tiamat’s early records while appreciating Satyricon and not denying themselves the punky Bad Religion vibes. This extraordinary blend makes “Spirit & Liberation” a captivating experience..

With “Spirit & Liberation” CHILD OF CAESAR have created a multi-layered masterpiece of sinister Goth Metal sound art with profound lyrics about sensitive thoughts on life and death. The new songs take the fundamental humanistic undertone of André Marcussen’s project to another level with his homage to a mature world without gods and religion. Lovers of gloomy albums with a 90s Dark Metal feeling will get bright eyes when this menacing album unfolds acoustically in their four walls.
