Outcast Launch Exclusive EP

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 6th February 2012 by Nico Davidson

Although their new album Awaken The Reason will be available via Listenable Records, Outcast are now giving away a FREE EP entitled Circles of Motion available via French webzine: Violent Solutions.

Circles of Motion features two brand new tracks off Awaken the Reason, Allegiance from the band’s second album Self-Injected Reality which features guest Jochem Jacobs of Textures, a Gojira cover recorded live in 2005, and a far fletched sounding studio instrumental David Winkle’s Terrible Adventure.

The latter track is pushing the idea of an instrumental Wagnerian alike composition to its limits as no musical idea is repeated twice, yet building up a story with a standard beginning, its developing stage and an ending. It’s going against the usual and common song structure. As the band  says “It’s a track that you have to accept as it plays by,  without much thought, it tells about  David’ s growth, often mentioned as ‘Commander Winky’ into a sort of Jackass hero (could also be a character in an X file series). This track was written with Frank Zappa’s trademark songwriting in mind, yet obviously displaying more violent and progressive sounds.”

Track listing is as followed:

1. Abysmal (from upcoming LP ‘Awaken the Reason’)
2. Remembrance (Exclusive EP track – Live GOJIRA cover)
3. Elements (from upcoming LP ‘Awaken the Reason’)
4. David Winkle’s Terrible Adventure (Exclusive EP track)
5. Allegiance (from ‘Self-Injected Reality’ – feat. Jochem Jacobs de TEXTURES)
