Priest / Obey
What do you get when you mix Mercury, Sulfur, and Salt? Priest, of course! With the title track of their new single circulating ahead of the March 29th release, I’d say it’s past time to get excited about “Obey.” With a lineup of ex-Ghost members, Priest is suitably shrouded in mystery…using the aforementioned periodic table names and donning masks to hide their appearances. That’s where the similarities end, though, as this is a purely synth based outfit. If you missed out on their 2017 debut, New Flesh, I suggest you get caught up. I suspect that 2019 is going to be a breakthrough year for the band, with Obey being the tip of the iceberg. I’ll be revisiting Priest at the end of the month when “Obey” officially releases. In the meantime, head over to Bandcamp and get your pre-order in now!
