German post-punk band The Tears Of Ozymandias stream a video for the first single »Zero Point« taken from their self-titled debut album, to be released on October 22nd, 2021 via Ván Records.
»The Tears Of Ozymandias« will be available as digipack compact disc, vinyl record and through the known digital channels.
The Tears Of Ozymandias play a guitar-laden version of post-punk and goth music, although substituting the Altamont ’69 vibes of the Sisters Of Mercy for bleak influences from Pacific Northwest punk of the late 80s on one hand, and a modicum of both black metal and shoegaze on the other.
The band was formed in 2018 in Munich by Benjamin K and Benjamin H, succeeding the erosion of the preceding musical endeavor »Path Of Samsara«. While that band was meant to depict hell’s warm fire, The Tears Of Ozymandias aims to extinguish all flames. But not without taking a thorough, yet unpleasant, look in the mirror first.
Thematically the songs of The Tears Of Ozymandias center around the various conditions and afflictions life in Kali Yuga brings about: “We’re shown over and over that human growth is a lie at worst and a myth at best. The way forward is from fire to ember.”
