Lavidius – new pirate metal track ‘Captain Benjamin Hornigold’
Brisbane’s hard-out and heavy outfit Lavidius are today pushing out to sea with a new frontman in the form of Ben Davis (also of Brissy’s Tria Mera) and brand new cargo on board – a heavy ditty about the tale of Spanish Pirate Captain Benjamin Hornigold. It’s the first taste of what the noted front-man is bringing to Lavidius and it’s a beer-swilling, chugging tune that sets a new standard and vibe to the band.
The new single is available for purchase and streaming since this Friday, January 11 at iTunes/Apple Music, Spotify and all good online outlets.
The brand new song is about a pirate named Captain Benjamin Hornigold, who was a privateer during the Spanish war who turned to piracy after the war ended and there was no use for his sailing experience.
Davis explains the idea behind writing the song and its lyrics. “He has one of the best pirate stories… He and his crew got so drunk one night after a successful raid that they all threw their hats overboard. When they woke the next morning, they realized their mistake and hunted down a cargo ship and boarded it. They tied up the entire crew and took their hats. They left all of the cargo and only stole the hats to replace the ones they had thrown overboard in their drunken state the night before.”
Lavidius is an Australian heavy metal band from Brisbane, formed in 2008. The band is now composed of Ben Davis (lead vocals), Jon Shedden (guitar and backing vocals), Marcus Glover (guitar), Sebastian Desmarais (bass guitar and backing vocals) and Ben Bowen (drums). Davis said that he is “…very excited to be involved with a hard working band that wants to push limits and make music that we all enjoy.”
Lavidius plays hard hitting music, with a unique blend of melody, down tempo grooves, finely tuned gutturals and ball tearing riffs that make you pull an ugly face because they are that filthy. Influences on the band include (though not limited to) Chimaira, Lamb of God, DevilDriver, Soilwork, Opeth, Parkway Drive, Gojira and Metallica, have been featured on triple j’s The Racket, The Faction, Andrew Haug Radio and single Days Get Darker featured Soilwork’s Bjorn ‘Speed’ Strid on guest vocals! Their career to date has also seen them support international artists Cradle of Filth and Angelus Apatrida as well as Australian legends Orpheus Omega, Witchgrinder, DarkCell, Chronolyth and Vanishing Point, as well as play Lagerstein’s festival Lagerfest.
Lavidius’ single Captain Benjamin Hornigold will be live in stores for purchase and streaming this Friday January 11.
