Stomp The Devil is Mortal Prophets’ Debut Single | Edgar Allan Poets

The main architect behind this musical project is John Beckmann

Indeed, we are facing an innovative and visionary project. As soon as I hit the play button, I didn’t know what to expect but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by this music.

An irreverent musical project that stands out from the crowd. The music proposed by John Beckmann is intriguing and difficult to label.

These are my favorite artistic experiences. When an artist or a band manages to create something unique by following only his instinct.

The skillful selection of sounds and the chord progression that is never predictable and banal make Stomp The Devil a song that creates a musical genre. I would dare to call it Electro Gothic Rock. An ideal sound for the people of the night.

A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.

John Beckmann and his evolving band of genre-bending roustabouts dig deep into America’s primal scream. Beckmann channels an apocalyptic vision fueled by the fire of pre-war blues legends such as Blind Willie Nelson, Charley Patton, and Robert Johnson, transmutted via the experimental ethos of German Electronica, groups as diverse as Neu!, Can, Cluster, Harmonia, Eno, Bowie, and Suicide.

Beckmann doesn’t waste any time setting the scene in the opening salvo of his Mortal Prophets debut, Stomp the Devil. As the sky turns black, a sinister rainstorm slides across the horizon, and lightning cuts through its inky canvas like Death’s scythe — a not-so-subtle warning to step away from your speakers or succumb to Beckmann’s raw, ominous sound. Hammering that point home is a haunting character that may or may not be rooted in reality: a “born again carnival barker – repentant preacher” that starts by delivering a warning to “all the demons in hell,” as if he alone can drive away the darkness. Or at the very least, all the apocalyptic thunder rattles the windows around us and makes this whole thing feel like a tent revival that’s gone straight off the rails.

Mortal Prophets takes that template into an alternate universe ruled by fractured riffs, laser-guided synth lines, and the sort of songs you want to hear when it’s the last call and the night refuses to end. Judging by the songs that Beckmann already has waiting in the wings, it’s just beginning.
