Singled Out: Voodoo Terror Tribe's City of Sixes

Voodoo Terror Tribe

Voodoo Terror Tribe are gearing up to release their new album "The Sun Shining Cold" next month and to celebrate we asked guitarist Emir Erkal to tell us about the song "City of Sixes". Here is the story:

City of Sixes was among a group of songs written for February Album Writer's Month in 2013. There was perhaps a song assignment of some sort to write about a city or locale, and the title "City of Sixes" had been in floating about. It's intended to be an ode to the Capital of the World; New York City.

Of course the lyrics are an allusion to the Big Apple being a place of sin and excess, using metal's favorite triangular-number in repetition and all that, but it's also a play on words. Sometimes sick, other times six. (Sic).

The song was originally intended to sound closer to Ministry, or Rob Zombie, but what emerged from the studio was a bit more melodic. What we perform live is somewhere in between, and progressively changing.

But NYC is the Mecca of Sin and Excess, and we wouldn't have it any other way. City of Sixes hopefully correctly expresses that sentiment.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, watch the video here and learn more about the album right here!
