Edgar Allan Poets Release New Song 'Not Your Guinea Pig'

 


Edgar Allan Poets describe their genre as "Noir Rock" because their music is inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's tales and Hitchcock's movies.
Their sound is deep and intense, a mix between grunge guitars and classical strings. The band consists of duo Chris Mariotti: (Vocals/Guitar) and the mysterious The Shadow: (Drums).

They have just unveiled a new song titled 'Not Your Guinea Pig', check out the video below:


Vocalist and guitarist Chris Mariotti offered the below insights into the video and song:

"The video is inspired by the mythological traditions of the Sumerians, Assyrians and Babylonians. The Anunnaki(Sumerian Gods of Heaven) creators of the world had as servants the Igigi (young Gods) who were used to perform various tasks. The Igigi, tired of submitting to the will of the Anunnaki, decided to rebel but were defeated. The Igigi were downgraded and replaced and the Anunnaki created the Humans who became their servants...yes if you haven't figured it out yet we are just slaves, it seems to me quite evident given the world we are living in...excuse the digression.

King Igigi, helped by his faithful servant Sammy Charon (name inspired by Charon of the Divine Comedy), after centuries of shadow wants to bring his lineage to power but to do so he must first destroy the Humans.

The only hope for the human race is Virgil Hunter, who will try to save the world. Maybe in the future he will even challenge the Anunnaki to finally set men free, but this is another episode.

In the video Virgil Hunter planted a syringe on Bill Gates' forehead because he does not really like the idea of a nerd trying to become a doctor... men are not PCs and we are nobody's guinea pig."
