Ventura, California fantasy metal/rock outfit GYGAX has issued “The Lascivious Underdark” — the lead single from their impending second album, Second Edition, streaming below.
GYGAX picks up where their 2016-released Critical Hits debut left off. The eight tracks that comprise Second Edition showcase GYGAX’s unrivaled and potent tendency to create absolutely anthemic rock ‘n’ roll hits, chock-full of hip shakin’ grooves and twin guitar explosions that would make Thin Lizzy shed a tear of pride. Second Edition was recorded in November of 2017 with Scott Goodrich at Nu-Tone Studios in Pittsburgh, California, and features the always incredible artwork of Fares Maese.
Of “The Lascivious Underdark,” GYGAX guitarist/vocalist Eric Harris offers, “The song takes place in the dangerous wilds of the Underdark, from the perspective of a Mind Flayer. It calls to its female prey through the lustful thoughts within its predatory mind, luring her with promises of a better life. All the while, dominance and subjugation are its end objective.”
