Immortal Tax Evader is the professional name of multi-instrumentalist Rock musician, songwriter and producer Patrick Devine. A native of Lexington, Kentucky, he has been making music for the better part of a decade. The multifaceted artist’s list of influences spans the spectrum of Rock & Roll. They include everyone from Sepultura to Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath to Jimi Hendrix. Playing all the instruments himself, in 2020 Devine began releasing his own brand of guitar-fueled Rock & Roll.
“Astrofetishist” is the latest single from Immortal Tax Evader. The track is a perfect fusion of Patrick’s varied musical inspirations. The song opens with an Alice in Chains-style Grunge intro and then quickly shifts into Megadeth-worthy Speed Metal guitar shredding. As the track progresses, the versatile musician mixes a James Hetfield (Metallica) howl with hard hitting and rhythmic Pantera-esque groove.
Layers of harmonized guitar riffs create a hypnotic Rock tapestry. They play off of the drums, creating intricate syncopated rhythms and sub-rhythms. It is a wild sound and executed with virtuosic perfection. Meanwhile the singer mixes psychedelic lyrical imagery with Heavy Metal attitude.
