Revolver & Fysisk Format presents:
Tau Cross is an underground punk/metal union featuring bassist and vocalist Rob “The Baron” Miller (Amebix), Michel “Away” Langevin (Voivod) on drums and Jon Misery (Misery) and Andy Lefton (War//Plague) on guitars. Formed in 2013 across two continents and three countries, TAU CROSS is the natural evolution of Miller’s work in Amebix. Tribal rhythms, searing guitars and Miller’s huge booming voice are all set to an apocalyptic atmosphere that will satisfy the crustiest punks as well as the blackest metallers. Tau Cross refuses to be pigeonholed, affirming the respective legacies of its members – the band delves into the realms of gothic rock, industrial, early doom, post-punk, and prog rock alongside its crust & thrash roots.
The band’s self-titled debut was recorded in 2014 and released in May 2015, and immediately found widespread critical reception. Cvlt Nation called Tau Cross “a thundering sonic journey, conjuring magic and darkness from the listener’s soul,” and Metal Injection stated, “Tau Cross has absolutely killed it and we are all better off for having this album in our collective lives,” while Invisible Oranges described the record as “never losing a penchant for strong song writing” and warned listeners to “ignore it at your own peril.” Tau Cross may have set a high standard for its first record, but if the band has proven anything so far, it’s that they are incredibly skilled at meeting – and exceeding – expectations.
Tau Cross will be releasing the 2nd full length album “Pillar of Fire” in the summer of 2017 on Relapse records and will be performing some of the songs of that album on the forthcoming tour.
A sturdy mix of riffs, dissonance of melody coupled with lyrical themes ranging from Lovecraft to Buckaroo Banzai all stirred up in one big cauldron of heavy delights
