Crannk Interviews Priest-Mercury

Priest is currently finishing up on tour in the US with Julien K and September Mourning, while also gearing up for the release of their latest Synthwave epic in Dark Pulse which is due out May 31st via Label Blue Nine. I recently caught up with Mercury to talk about the latest singles “Just A Game” & “Burning Love“, all things Priest, and the latest album Dark Pulse.

Dark Pulse is Priest’s fourth studio album and is produced by Simon Söderberg (ex-Ghost). It’s a dark synth-pop album with rave elements and heavy industrial notes.

Heavily inspired by cyberpunk and goth culture, it dives into the dark and seductive nightlife that can be found specifically in Berlin. Dark Pulse explores themes like alcohol addiction, surviving narcissism, forbidden love, etc. connected to a past flamboyant lifestyle that just won’t let go. With a signature blend of eerie synthesizers and pulsating hardware, Priest delves deeper into the shadows of dystopia and human-machine symbiosis. Get ready for an electronic dance record with poisoned roots, catapulting you into feverish insanity and back!

Priest is a synth band that creates music rooted in the vastness of electronic dreams. The goal of their multifaceted prophecy is to safely guide humanity to the next evolutionary step – the merging with machines.

The occult techno-pop act from Sweden, containing ex-members from Ghost, will throw you into the neon lights of 80 ́s sci-fi mixed with gothic soundscapes. With several praised global tours and critically acclaimed releases like New Flesh and Body Machine they’ve successfully generated an ever growing fanbase worldwide.Priest has toured with bands like Nitzer Ebb, Die Krupps, Combichrist, Deathstars and Front Line Assembly among others. Priest is also featured on Cleopatra Records tribute albums for Rammstein, Depeche Mode, and The Cure and has remixed tracks for Pure Obsessions & Red Nights, Aux Animaux, and Sjöblom.
