Where afrobeat meets Black Sabbath
What if Black Sabbath were to play afrobeat? Here Lies Man’s untitled debut offers an answer to this question. The quintet was established by Antibalas guitarist Marcos Garcia. He effortlessly combines his experience with West-African rhythms and the riff-based foundations of heavy rock.
The result is an incredibly refreshing, catchy twist on everything that rock or afrobeat is supposed to be.

In the press « You might know Marcos Garcia best for his work with the afrobeat band Antibalas, but he also leads the heavy psych band Here Lies Man, whose goal is to the answer the question: ‘What if Black Sabbath played Afrobeat?’ Going by Here Lies Man’s new single ‘You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere,’ the answer might be that it would sound pretty damn good. It’s funky, groovy, heavy, and trippy all at once, and it rules pretty hard. » – Brooklyn Vegan
