About their new album, the band says, Evil Mystery was very much a team effort, adding new vocals by João Fonseca and playing with new sounds… In a way, we paid our respects to the doom legends but at the same time defining and finding our sound. Better song writing, more focus on the vocals and song structures while having fun doing what we do’.

They continue with adding, ‘We went to a good studio called Garage 16 and went with a more old school and primitive recording style, in order to make the record feel old yet refreshing in a way. Carlota‘s artwork made our vision come to life and transpose what people are going to get: a primitive, scary and yet magical record. We hope you Love it as much as we do.’

Featuring six hypnotic tracks of spellbinding horror-tinged heavy doom and psychedelic rock, and as the incantation has now been cast, The Shaman can bring you Evil Mystery in its entirety by clicking play below…

More On Lord Of Confusion & ‘Evil Mystery’

Formed in 2018, Lord Of Confusion is a young four-piece group from Portugal that plays a psychedelic-driven doom-metal greatly influenced by classic horror movies and tales of the supernatural and the occult.

In 2019 they self-released their debut EP titled Burnin’ Valley, which garnered positive reviews and gave them the opportunity to play all over Portugal, helping the band to reach a wider audience and new fans.

Evil Mystery is the band’s first full length album and it takes Lord Of Confusion into a whole new level of intensity and maturity, thanks to all the experience they got along the way and a lot of hard work put in developing and delivering their new release.

A hell of a lot of blood, sweat, tears and thought has clearly gone into the creation of Evil Mystery and that’s pretty evident throughout these six new tracks. With improved songwriting skills and a proper production, the album doesn’t merely rehash that classic doom meets hammer movies formula, it shows a genuine creepy and chilling atmosphere created by psychedelia-tinged doom riffs, pounding ritualistic beats, and the haunting voice of Carlota Sousa.
