THUNDER - OUT NOW
Proud to announce that the third full-length Byronic Sex & Exile album will be released on Goth City Records on Friday 3rd September, available on CD and digital download.
Unrepentant Thunder features 16 tracks mixing blisteringly passionate guitar-based gothic rock, devastating ballads and sombre spoken word. The album, loosely based on Byron's participation in (and martyrdom for) the struggle for Greek independence, is an expressive feast which ebbs and flows like the revolution itself - by turns militant, poetic and sorrowful, it is a defence of the very idea of political agency in keeping with the best traditions of the romantic gothic movement.
1. To Die For Greece
3. Until Freedom Dies
4. Deicide Is Painless
5. Death Or Joy

9. Last Letter To Mao
11. A Boy Called Jihad
