On the eve of battle, one Space Marine in a Black Templars chapter will receive a vision from the Emperor of Mankind, whose remains lay in the Sanctum Imperialis on Terra. The Champion is adorned with the Black Sword and Armor of Faith, as has been the tradition since Primarch Rogal Don first bestowed the title upon Sigismund, Captain of the Imperial Fists and the first Emperor's Champion. Once annointed, the Emperor's Champion will lead the chapter in renewing one of four vows to the God Emperor.
The Emperor's Champion 10" record release from Pittsburgh's 8cylinder contains four tracks, one dedicated to each of the four vows a Black Templar can be bound to.
Throughout "Under," Dyani presents carefully-produced, soundscapes that, in one moment, invite the body to sway with echoing synths, whistles, claves and, in the next, pummel with waves of thumping hi-hats and bass. Bandcamp Album of the Day Sep 22, 2020
