March 18, 2022, a year ago
"There's nothing you can do to stop that inner mounting flame!," screams Phil Naro, the legendary voice of Talas on the band's first track in 37 years.
Today, Talas return with the brand new song "Inner Mounting Flame", featuring vocals by the late Talas frontman Naro, who passed away in May of 2021. The song is a tour de force of hard rock teetering on metal. "Inner Mounting Flame" marks Talas' first taste of new music since 1984's Live Speed On Ice. Listen to the song below.
Helmed by world renowned bassist Billy Sheehan, Talas is a unique blend of 80's hard rock infused with the headbanging of modern metal. Cutting through this cacophony of sound is the unmistakable voice of the late Phil Naro who delivered a performance for the ages.
On the track, Sheehan explains, "'Inner Mounting Flame' is a bombastic, high-speed chaos of adrenaline that we would often use as our opening song at the live Talas shows in 1985. We stayed close to the original arrangement - this was such a blast to record, and Phil sang his ass off on it. The song title came from a very famous fusion bands album title (The Mahavishnu Orchestra - Inner Mounting Flame), and was our take on what that flame might be about."
"Inner Mounting Flame" (produced by Billy Sheehan, Russ Mackay, Scott Bush and Talas) is a rocker reminiscent of the Buffalo band's long storied history which began in the 1970's. Filled out by jaw dropping drummer Mark Miller, and new addition Kire Najdovski on guitar, Talas has more news coming soon.
