Alesana’s Dennis Lee has started a new band named Child Of The Jackyl. The band has released their first single titled “Chthonian Descent,” which can be heard here. Check out a message from Lee as to why he has started this side project below. The band has recently signed with Revival Recordings and the official single for “Chthonian Descent” will be available November 13.
“Child of the Jackyl has been a brainchild of mine for quite a few years now. It started when I was in a rut trying to find new music to listen to. A majority of the new metal bands I dug up were either breakdown drenched dribble or lyrically devoid of any message save infantile misogyny. I knew that if I was patient I would find like minded musicians and be able to produce music that was free of the gimmicky bullshit that has drenched the music scene… and oh I did. The Child of the Jackyl has been born so prepare to put your horns in the air and bang your fucking head.” – Dennis Lee
