The Boxer Rebellion was an attempt by the Chinese to expel foreign imperialists from their country at the end of the 19th century. A sect called the Righteous Fists of Harmony led the uprising. They believed they could fight modern Western weapons with their traditional Chinese martial arts.
This seventh grade history lesson is the inspiration for Daedelus’ new EP, Righteous Fists of Harmony. “Order of the Golden Dawn” is a mellow lullaby with ghostly vocals from his wife Laura Darlington. The song in the above trailer is “Fin De Siecle.”
The EP drops March 23.
