That’s a famous quote… Leonardo fucking Da Vinci, in fact, who was/is extremely metal. We have, indeed, been quiet to the outside world, but rest assured that behind the veil, Hot Fog has been loud and busy – – busy raging with the violent and sublime fury of metal excellence. We sequestered ourselves deep within the caverns of an undisclosed location and unleashed a torrent of soaring brutality that the tape could just barely contain.
Many years in the making, “Secret Phantasies of the Dragon Sun” is eights songs of pure vintage metal, and it will be available soon (in both digital and vinyl delivery mechanisms). We couldn’t help ourselves, and our offering is going to be a double fucking album, which seems impossible, given that there are only eight songs, but there you go. The album is recorded, mixed, and mastered, and as we speak, the insanely talented rock artist, Alan Forbes, is finishing up what will be the most awesome metal album cover in all of history, no questions asked. Anyway… here’s a little video montage to give you a little “behind the scenes” view into the recording of the record: Secret Phantasies Sneak Peak. Also, for a limited time, and for our fans… here is the new record, streamable via Soundcloud: Stream: “Secret Phantasies of the Dragon Sun”.
