Sophia Schöneseiffen Amazingly mature yet adventurous progressive rock that masterfully weaves in a plethora of influences without breaking the tone of each song nor the general theme of the album itself. Highly recommended! Favorite track: King Defeatism I: The Oil Prince.

This is the fifth album release by Progressive Rock/Post-Metal band Echo Tail, called "King Defeatism". The album concept is a spiritual progression from a past album release, "Hold The Throne", continuing the theme and imagery of a fall of a kingdom ruled by an infernal royal lineage; the four part suite at the end of the album represents the pinnacle of this story. "King Defeatism" is our heaviest and rawest album to date and we are excited to share it with all of you. Thank you for any kind of support you give us, through buying our small-run CDs, download or even a single play, this project would not be this far without you.

Update 27/6/15: Over 100 downloads of King Defeatism in less than 24 hours, thank you so much!

Update 29/6/15: Just bought more free download credits, so pricing is now back to "name your price". Thank you for your amazing support so far!

Update 31/7/15: Approaching 200 downloads in less than 5 days, more than any of our other albums, thanks for your fantastic support! There are still CDs available to buy!!

Update 11/8/15: King Defeatism has been downloaded more times than our last 3 albums combined, crazy stuff and its all thanks to our listeners and downloaders, huge love to you all!
