Exclusive: Child of the Jackyl—Featuring Alesana Vocalist Dennis Lee—Premiere New Song, “Chthonian Descent”
A little over a month ago, we introduced the world to Child of the Jackyl, the new band featuring Alesana’s Dennis Lee and Bloodjinn’s Kyle Odell, plus Justin Reich and Scott Shelton, both of Vanisher. We also previewed a clip from the debut song, “Chthonian Descent.” Now we’re proud to premiere the track in its entirety.
“Child of the Jackyl’s first song, ‘Chthonian Descent,’ is a twist on the idea of modern science meddling with areas others consider divine,” Lee explains. “In an attempt to travel through space by tapping into another dimension, researchers unwittingly open a portal to another dimension akin to the Christian idea of Hell. One said scientist is ensnared by one of the entities that come through the gateway, forcibly impregnated, and gives birth to what will end mankind. The whole while her colleagues pray desperately to gods they forsook long ago. Enjoy.”
The band will release their debut EP, Last Son Of Gaia, Winter 2013 on Revival Recordings.
