Lodestar unveil Hammer inspired gothic horror video featuring Peter Cushing for the phenomenal new single ‘Bring Me The Head’

Experimental rock band Lodestar proudly release their brand new single Bring Me The Head. The lean, grinding and vengeful, Bring Me The Head is taken from their forthcoming album, Zonen, released on 17th May.

“Bring me the head is the delusion that someone else is responsable for your woes. If only you could exact vengeance.  Bring me the head of John the Baptist, Alfredo Garcia, Charlie Brown  but surely never you?” – Lodestar

Watch the chilling Bring Me The Head video, featuring Peter Cushing here:

While Lodestar’s self-titled album, released in 1996, was edgy and frantic, their second album,  Zonen, is much heavier, more serious and self-assured, and finds the band at their full creative tilt.

“We have evolved individually in different projects and that has fed into this new album. There has been switching of instruments and a lot of new techniques applied in service of the songs. We naturally went for leaner, more memorable songs while maintaining and increasing the weight and power. Lyrically it’s strange, coming back to it almost thirty years later. Though so much has evolved, there’s still a fascination with some of the same themes.”

Zonen features 11 songs including the singles; Bring Me The HeadSurrender To The Tide (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eby3Dwfrlg0) and Flame  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqs9pQFPWZA).  

Zonen is an unequivocal triumph and well worth the wait.

Lodestar was originally formed in 1996 by three members of legendary British rap-rock band Senser (Heitham Al-Sayed, Alan ‘Lord Hagos’ Haggarty and John Morgan) to fulfil their hunger for a heavier musical palette.

After releasing two killer singles, an eponymous album hailed by the NME as ‘a modern metal masterpiece’ and touring with the likes of Tool, the band ceased operating in 1997.


2024 sees Lodestar resurrected and joined by Charlie Beddoes (Rub Ultra, Trash Palace, Nasty Little Lonely) on bass. Their new material is a beautiful, brutal and esoteric mix of doomy grooves, gutsy onslaughts and eccentric wanderings through a sweetly sinister landscape, inspired by prescient visions, occult symbolism and subtle sensuality.
