Mary and the Ram (the studio project of The Trembling Hellish Infernal Nightmare Generator’s Kiran Tanna and The Parasitic Twins’ Dom Smith) have released the video for latest single, ‘Eclipse’ which was released on October 18, 2019 through Syndicol Music.

For Fans of The Dresden Dolls, Death From Above 1979, Marilyn Manson, Nick Cave and Nine Inch Nails.

Recorded at Melrose Yard Studios in York, UK and co-produced between Kiran, and New York-based Kallie Marie (Explosives For Her Majesty), the band have also hooked in the talents of Dave Ogilvie (The Weeknd, NIN, Skinny Puppy) for mixing, and mastering by Howie Weinberg (Thirty Seconds To Mars, Mars Volta, Nirvana).

Dom had this to say on the video:

"’Eclipse’ is the darkest thing we’ve put out. I could tell you what it’s based around lyrically, but we wanted some solid occultish symbolism so that people can make up their own minds – is it about dark relationships? is it just our nightmarish fantasy? There are numerous themes and ideas in Duncan’s animated work, and we look forward to people’s interpretations."

MaTR has also made efforts to expand the live sound, recruiting musicians from both York and Hull to join the group as full-time members: Edward Alan Logie (Modern Mood Swings) and Sarah Shiels (Black Delta Movement). Live dates will be announced soon.

York, UK-based post-punk band, Mary And The Ram (featuring The Parasitic Twins‘ Dom Smith on drums, and Kiran Tanna [The Trembling Hellish Infernal Nightmare Generator] on vocals and production, have announced a single version of ‘The Dream’, to be released on Friday, July 20 via the band’s Soundcloud.

The original track, which appeared a b-side to ‘The Cross’ single (NSFW video below), clocks in at seven minutes, with this new version running in at just over three, and is heavily influenced by the likes of Nine Inch Nails, and Nick Cave.

This version of ‘The Dream’ marks MATR’s last offering before heading into the studio at York St John University over the next few months to record a follow-up EP that will take the band away from its more post-punk and goth roots, and bring it into more alternative rock territory, with concentration on live instrumentation, alongside the signature brooding synth-heavy sound. Alongside Tanna’s production, the group will be working with Howie Weinberg, who is responsible for Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’, and Muse’s ‘Black Holes And Revelations’ among others).

Dom’s Parasitic Twins bandmate, Max Watt will also be joining the band in the studio to record guitars, and bolster the live line-up in 2019.
