The Casanovas have released the title track from their album Reptilian Overlord, channelling their love for early Metallica and Black Sabbath into a rocking number that reaffirms the bands rise back to prominence.
The album was produced by legendary Australian Mark Opitz (AC/DC, Angels, Divinyls), bringing that added old school rock dimension to the Casanovas sound that goes hand in hand with their own individual style.
Casanovas founding member Tommy Boyce explains “I’m pretty sure this was the first song I wrote for this album. Musically it’s kind of a mixture of sounds that I loved as a kid like Black Sabbath and early Metallica. The main riff in the verses is a bit Metallica whereas the chorus is very Sabbath, as is the outro section. So basically an exercise in extreme heaviosity. At the time I was down a YouTube David Icke/Ancient Aliens rabbit hole. I love the idea that our planet is ruled, behind the scenes, by a race of extra-dimensional, malevolent reptilian aliens that are worshipped by the ‘elites’ who make up the so-called ‘Illuminati’. I mean if it was real it’d be terrifying but without proof, it seems unlikely to be true but still makes for an awesome story.”
“Reptilian Overlord” is perhaps the heaviest song yet from the Casanovas who are playing with the freedom that only comes from a band who are top of their game.
