Thurston Moore's Metal Supergroup Releases 1st Song, Announces Album, Breaks Up

Out of all the projects rising from the ashes of Sonic Youth, the one I was most intrigued by was Thurston Moore joining the black metal supergroup, Twilight. It feels like the news Thurston would finally be indulging his metal side came out forever ago, to the point where I just assumed I had imagined it. This week came the news that Twilight finally had a song you could listen to ("Lungs"), an album coming out (III: Beneath Trident's Tomb), and was promptly breaking up. The whole thing almost feels like some kind of put on, except that holy shit is this song good. As you can tell by what we normally write about, neither Jeff or I are big metal guys. We're much more likely to go to a revamped Lilith Fair than Ozzfest. But Twilight? This sounds like Helmet and Quicksand had formed in Norway. And murdered people.

If that sounds like your thing, III: Beneath Trident's Tomb comes out on 3/18. You can listen to "Lungs" below.
