THE TEMPTER: One-Time Collaborative Effort Featuring Members Of Yakuza, Pelican, The Atlas Moth, And More Records Cover Of Trouble Classic; All Proceeds To Benefit Chicago's The Night Ministry

"...a collective bunch of new and old Chicago characters coming together to raise some funds and pay tribute to our musical heroes."  - Bruce Lamont

 


THE TEMPTER  is a loving, one-time tribute honoring Chicago doom legends, Trouble, featuring members of Snow Burial, Huntsmen, The Atlas Moth, Pelican, and Yakuza. The idea came together by producer and multi-instrumentalist Sanford Parker shortly after Chicago's lockdown hit. He thought there was no better person to lay down the vocals then friend, bandmate, and business partner, Bruce Lamont (Yakuza, Bloodiest). The next step was to lock in the rhythm section, with Mike Miczek (The Atlas Moth, Broken Hope) on drums and Mark Njjar (Huntsmen) on bass. Guitar tracks were laid down by Dallas Thomas (Pelican) and Ben Bowman (Snow Burial) while Parker mixed and mastered the track. Artwork was created by Stavros Giannopoulos (The Atlas Moth) with Lamont creating the video for the track.

 

The group chose "The Tempter" as the single as well as the band name because, as Lamont states, "What can't be said about Trouble? They're legends around these parts. 'The Tempter' was the obvious choice. It's the classic first cut off their debut  Psalm 9 . Heavy as fuck. It was an honor to cover this."
