New Zealand tech/avant death metal outfit BLINDFOLDED AND LED TO THE WOODS returns with a new single, “Atop The Wings Of A Magpie,” which features guest vocals from KARL SANDERS of NILE. Music video for the single can be seen below.
“Atop The Wings Of A Magpie” was recorded at The Sitting Room, Lyttleton, in November 2019, with additional vocals recorded by Alex Harmer, and additional guest vocals by KARL SANDERS recorded at Serpent Headed Studios. The single was produced, recorded, and mixed by Samuel K. Sproull, mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music, and completed with artwork by Nina Moice at M.M Design.
In a coup for the band, legendary NILE founder Karl Sanders contributes vocals to the track “Atop The Wings Of A Magpie.” Impressed by BLINDFOLDED AND LED TO THE WOODS‘ ability to, “capture and convey real emotion,” Sanders felt the song was, “bursting with feeling and atmosphere [and] a real sense of disorientation, despair, fear of the unknown, and a loss of humanity.”
