Waking Up With… A Metal Dragon Named KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD

Daily noise that works faster than any stimulant

7 June 2023

As I said a million times before and I have no clue whatsoever what these
Aussies eat, drink, sniff or swallow. But 24 albums in 13 years is INSANE.

Number 24, their new one, entitled (take a long, deep breath) PetroDragonic
Apocalypse Or Dawn Of Eternal Night: An Annihilation Of Planet Earth And
The Beginning Of Merciless Damnation
. It lands on 16 June. More info here.

For the occasion, the prog-rock eccentrics from down under will let us hear their
metallic trash and crash side. We already had a first taster with the demoniac lead
single Gila Monster and here’s another draconian behemoth of a torpedo track.

An almost 10-minute escapade that shifts from speed-death-metal to familiar
prog-rock sequences and back, trashing stuff along the way. KGTLW rules!


The accompanying video was directed by the band’s close collaborator Jason Galea, matches footage of King Gizz playing Dragon interspersed with some computer-animated lizardry inspired by the original Sony PlayStation.

Unleash the beast.
