David Hevener is a preschool teacher and the guitarist, vocalist and mystic rattle player for Santa Fe’s Gnossurrus. The robe-cloaked mystic-prophecy metal band is releasing its first album, Beast of Destiny , this Saturday at Burt’s. To get a feel for some of Gnossurrus’ inspiration, take a look-see at five random tracks from Hevener’s collection.

Song Roulette

1) Magma • "Köhntarkösz, Part 2" • Köhntarkösz

“True prophets of opera metal from another planet, Magma is a must-have. A Gnossurrus progenitor discovered after we’d begun.”

Song Roulette

2) Slough Feg • "Simian Manifesto" • Ape Uprising!

“A band that taps into the same resurgent atavistic wisdom from which the
Beast of Destiny was born—and have fucking fun doing it.”

Song Roulette

3) Hammers of Misfortune • "The Prophesy Has Two Meanings" • The Bastard

“Epic, complex, visionary, theatrical thrash metal from San Francisco. It satisfies. It inspires. Total music.”

Song Roulette

4) Manilla Road • "The Riddle Master" • Crystal Logic

“O.G. underground fantasy metal from Wichita, Kan. Feel their lust for drama rumble between your thighs.”

Song Roulette

5) Melvins • "The Smiling Cobra” • Nude with Boots

“No one masters idiosyncrasy, heaviness and knee-jerk rhythms like these legendary diehards.”
