FROGLORD – ARMY OF FROGS
It’s still Friday somewhere… And there might be a wind from the west… And it blows mighty restless and free… And you know that it’s best… If you go for there surely will be… Trouble… Frog trouble… Indeed, in fact, there’s a whole Army Of Frogs!! ‘Army of Frogs‘ is the third studio album from FROGLORD released November 4th and continues the story of the previous two album, recounting the tale of the FROGLORD – an ancient amphibian with deathray vision and ecoplasmic slime. This album has evolved FROGLORD‘s sound from the previous two, adopting a stronger psychedelic sludge sound…
Their own words:
“100 years after the great Saturnalian invasion, Froglord reflects on his great swampy empire. His closest advisor and Sage offers the advice that perhaps all the bloodshed and death required to achieve this world has really created a Dystopia masking itself as a utopian paradise. To better understand this and reconvene with the ancestors, the Sage takes Froglord to the great Northern Temple. Once there, Froglord enters a deep meditative trance. But while ascending into the astral plane, the Sage plunges a pesticide dagger into the Froglord’s heart. His traitorous plan to kill Froglord and set in motion a Paradigm Shift back to the ways of machines and pollution has begun. But as Froglord’s spirit traverses the Bardo into the next life, a great ripple is felt across the swamp, awakening all those loyal to the Froglord. The great Army of Frogs is summoned.
The army begin their storm upon the Northern Temple and are met by a mighty rebel force. Froglord’s war cry echoes through the planes of existence into the minds of his army “Crush Your Enemies!”. Enraged and in frenzy, a bloody war ensues. Countless deaths later, the traitors all lie fallen. The Sages rush to collect Froglord’s body and prepare the Funeral Rite before his soul fades away and the cycle of rebirth is broken. Once complete, the army embarks on a mass Procession, delivering Froglord’s body to the Crystal Pyramid; constructed by the Saturnalians. Laying him down, his spirit ascends into The Watcher state, where he casts his mighty eye over the world, awaiting his next rebirth in another 10,000 years.”
