ALBUM REVIEW COMING SOON! – Stardog the Red
Seattle rock band Devils Hunt Me Down is celebrating the first release of their album In Medias Res: an epic tale composed of three separate four-song EPs to be released one-by-one throughout 2017. This first release was celebrated with a show at the High Dive on April 28th, featuring Seattle favorites Year of the Cobra, Woodshed, and Hundred Loud.
Teaming up with Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Ten Miles Wide), Devils Hunt Me Down set out to capture the energy of their live shows in studio quality. In Medias Res explores a range of human experiences over a canvas of dirty grooves; from life-altering epiphanies, to joy and the desire for death, to success and failure.
The EP kicks off with the song “A Caveman in a Computer Room,” a metaphor for the unfortunate union of humanity’s primitive understanding of the universe with our immense destructive potential as individuals and a species. “I Am That I Am” then explores the concept of authenticity, while “Dead and Down” and “Rusty Nail” paint deeply personal experiences.
While the official release date for the EP is May 12, the public can get early access to the first installment and a limited edition album shirt on Bandcamp or at the event on April 28th if you attended
A thing of note is that the band is releasing the 3-EP series “in true trilogy form, we are starting in the middle of the story with In Medias Res II” – and as if that reference wasn’t enough (high-five if you get it) – those of you fluent Latin speakers (or astute Googlers) will also notice that “In Media Res II” translates to “In the middle of it.”
So when you’re done chewing on that, take a listen to the first couple singles at the end of the article, the first being “I Am That I Am” and the second “Rusty Nail”
