The extreme avant-garde metal project The Outsider has recently released a new single which features 8 dimensional audio, making it the first ever metal release to use this effect in this particular way in order to offer a new experience for the listener (headphones needed). The single named “The Headless Horror” also features guest vocals by Kelly Shaefer from the legendary band Atheist and a lyric video was made for it.
The 8 Dimensional Audio effect (or Ambisonics Audio) is a full-sphere surround format that, in addition to the horizontal plane, covers sound sources from above and below the listener. This makes it perfectly suitable for the music by The Outsider, which is dark and experimental and is highly influenced by Lovecraftian horror and themes.The Outsider is a one-man metal project that started with a symphonic death metal sound with middle-east musical influences, but later evolved into something more experimental and avant-gardish, but still keeping its roots into symphonic and middle-east music in some songs..The Outsider is also known for having special guests from well known bands on its songs, like musicians from Therion, Armageddon and Snowy Shaw. They recently released a highly experimental song which features Jørgen Munkeby from Shining and a single featuring Kristian Niemann (Sorcerer, ex-Therion) will be released in march. A new album is set to be released in April.
