Swords and metal go hand in hand. Thats what crossover thrash band High Command say, having turned heads with their debut album Beyond The Wall of Desolation (2019). But its not solely metal music which influences the band, who cite the lustful violence of Robert E. Howard, Michel Moorcock, Jack Vance and many other legendary pulp writers of the 20th century as an impetus for their expansive storytelling.

People would also be surprised to hear we drew quite a bit of inspiration from the music of Ennio Morricone, especially in regards to writing some more of the epic, grandiose passages and chord progressions. says the band.

Now, with their second album, Eclipse of the Dual Moons, the band take their love of storytelling a step further, deepening and widening the world of Secartha, the realm of High Commands songs. The band place themselves as omniscient narrators of the world they have created, and say that they are inseparable from Secartha and its people. Its one thing to make a good metal record, but its another to put on top of it a sort of overarching story that makes sense to listeners. The whole High Command project is enriched by lyrics articulating characters, a world, and trials faced within it. We want our records to be immersive and leave listeners with a feeling theyve experienced something bigger than the music.

Its not just a question of widening the world, which the band first started exploring on The Secartha Demos (2016); Eclipse of the Dual Moons sees High Command honing their process to a fine art its like we started with chiseling a rock this record is the moment the rock in question begins to look like an actual sculpture.
