Heavily inspired by sci-fi and Tabletop RPGs, Deserts Of Mars deliver a dynamic sonic mixture of stoner rock, grunge, metal, and doom/industrial. The new single “Shilluminati” is out now, and lands ahead of the forthcoming album Dead Planet Exodus to be released later this year.

The band comments on “Shilluminati”:

“Breaking from the concept album narrative, we wanted to return to a more doomy/industrial sound. Morgan came up with this name as we labeled riffs for future reference, and it became a spiritual successor to ‘Your Altars’ from our previous EP, Return from the Void. The song explores the ultra-rich and powerful’s blatant hubris and how they no longer hide their greed and corruption, as well as my struggle with my complacency within the system. This has hit even harder since we recorded it, as thousands of people are being laid off and profits soar. They hoard their wealth, and we are told to be angry that prices are higher by the same people who raise them and cackle at the chaos, selling us a dream we might never attain.”
