More info on MERSO’s Red World:
Initially leaning on a more psych-metal sound with the self-released “Plague House” EP under their original moniker Leatherdaddy, MERSO is now moving into somber, more conceptual territory inspired by the proggy work of King Crimson and Yes, as well as the metaphorical underpinnings of Alan Moore’s groundbreaking run writing Swamp Thing. The new album ties all that together into a sound that transcends. GOOD TO DIE RECORDS brings you ‘Red World’ just in time for MERSO’s west coast tour starting in October.
