The space-metal/sci-fi duo Hyperwülff, an intergalactic entity hailing from planet Erion IX, is back with their new album “Volume 3: Burrowing Kingdoms”, coming up on December 9th via Overdrive Records.
The Sarge (guitars, vocals, synthesizers) and The Wülff (drums, synthesizers) came to Earth to tell the epic of the mighty spirit of The Hyperwülff through the power of The Riff. Since 2013, they have released three full-length albums, two EPs, and an interactive adventure. Now, they are ready to unleash the Volume 3 dubbed Burrowing Kingdoms.
Volume 3: Burrowing Kingdoms brings The Sarge and The Wülff to the abandoned planet Ktolon, where they will find the remains of an ancient civilization and meet a mysterious presence inhabiting the depths of the planet.
Along with their signature raw and energetic metal-punk, injections of new psych-noise and vintage electronica expand the duo’s sonic landscape.
The crew has escaped from the destruction of their home planet Erion IX, where the Hyperwülff itself has fought to the death with an alien invader named Robogoat. The crew, manned by The Wülff and The Sarge (respectively, drums/synths and guitar/vocals/synths in the real-life band) are now on a quest to find help. On Volume Three, the crew lands on planet Ktolon, to explore a strong source of energy they picked up from space.
The song describes the descent of the Hyperwülff crew into the bowels of the Square Tip mountain on planet Ktolon, where the energy is coming from.
“We created a whole interactive story to describe the premise of what happens on Volume Three.” – comments the band. “The story is called Void and Descent and it can be played on our official website. In Void and Descent, the player/reader controls a robotic exploration unit named L.U.P.O. (Light Unmanned Personality-Based Operator) as it explores planet Ktolon before the actual crew steps in.”
