PILLARS OF A TWISTED CITY‘S NEW ALBUM SENTINEL OUT TODAY VIA DEBT OFFENSIVE RECORDS – LISTEN HERE!
The highly anticipated sophomore album, Sentinel, from Vancouver’s PILLARS OF A TWISTED CITY is out today via Debt Offensive Records! Inspired by time spent in the Pacific Northwest and harnessing aspects of black and thrash metal while also diving more into post-punk and gothic elements, the album is available to listen to and to purchase at THIS location.
“We are excited to share with the world, our 2nd album Sentinel. This diverse little gem was fun to create and we hope you enjoy the audio journey it takes you on,” explains Johnny Stewart (frontman).
Formed in 2020 by Johnny Stewart and the follow-up to the group’s self-titled debut, Sentinel is a stunning record with beautiful atmospheric moments scattered throughout. Stewart composed Sentinel in Tofino, Canada, and tracked many of the instruments in an isolated floating studio in Clayoquot Sound. This beautiful backdrop influenced a lot of the sound and direction of the record as Stewart explains, “Thematically the isolation upon the ocean with only eagles, orcas, and meteorites inspired creative sounds. The songs came out naturally with additional influence and inspiration from events around us in the world over the last few years.”
The album also finds Stewart incorporating banjo, accordion, and classical nylon string guitar into his compositions. The recording of these more exotic instruments took place in the aforementioned floating studio, housed in a shipment container entitled Sentinel, thus also serving as the inspiration for the album title. “The goals of this band are to push boundaries, explore new sounds, and write good songs. Pillars of a Twisted city is an artistic collaboration celebrating freedom of creativity, removing consumer pressure, and concentrating on unique recording and songwriting experiences,” explains Stewart.
Earlier this month Pillars of a Twisted City released the third single from the album “Significant Tragedies“. The group also premiered their “Subatomic Love” music video via CVLT Nation at the end of September. This is the second single to come off of the album, which followed the Bandcamp release of “Winters Blood“. Sentinel has received coverage from Metal Heads Forever, Metal Digest, The Tinnitist, Idioteq, Grande Rock and more!
