Chris Black is quite the metal multi-tasker. He operates his own label, Planet Metal, and is the frontman of Chicago bands Superchrist, High Spirits and of course the ever-so-epic Dawnbringer, whose magnificent new album, Into the Lair of the Sun God, will be making its way to the masses on May 29 via Profound Lore.

A concept album that tells the complicated story of a prideful hero's quest to murder the sun, Into the Lair of the Sun God is told in nine untitled chapters -- and here for you we have Chapter VII, a track that highlights the band's Asian-inspired retro-progressive style, with a modern heavy metal pummeling for good measure.
