"Gone Sovereign" and "Absolute Zero" open the CD, and set up everything to come. In Corey Taylor's words, "These are the first two songs on House of Gold and Bones Part 1. Being the first part of a set of concept albums, 'Gone Sovereign' is essentially the overture and 'Absolute Zero' is the Hero's anthem. It is the best way to introduce you to this new world. For more background, you'll have to wait for the full albums."
House of Gold and Bones Part 1 will be available everywhere October 23.
