PIAH MATER SIGN WITH CODE666

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on August 29, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Brazilian progressive death metal band PIAH MATER are pleased to announce that they have signed with legendary Italian label code666 to release their forthcoming album The Wandering Daughter on October 5th 2018.

Vocalist Luiz Felipe Netto commented: “Code666 has been the cradle of many great bands that went on to later become household names in their niche. We are very honored by this opportunity and looking forward to seize it in the best possible way.”

He further explains that “Although it’s not a concept album per se, “The Wandering Daughter” does have a common theme throughout its entirety, a thread that connects its 6 songs into a sensorial unity. On a musical level, we aimed for that feeling of being taken on a journey, with its many pitfalls and climaxes along the record’s 56 minutes of play. Lyric-wise, that thread would be the relationship between man/ woman and nature. I understand that, at a first glance, this is not exactly groundbreaking territory for a band to explore in their songs, plenty of artists have delved into this topic before. But I do believe that, when crafting lyrics, perspective is everything and that the way this subject is presented stems from a very genuine and intimate place. I hope that comes across to the listeners as well.”

More information will be available soon.

Second To Sun - The Black - album cover pic - 2018 - #33MO22ILMN3

Russian Metal trio SECOND TO SUN are proud to announce the release of The Black, a reissue of the Blackbound (2016) album, which was re-recorded to add vocals, among several other enhancements.  

The Black was released on May 16. It can be purchased at this location and is streaming in its entirety on SECOND TO SUN’s  Bandcamp page and YouTube Channel. Guitarist, bassist, and mastermind of the project, Vladimir Lehtinen released the following statement concerning The Black:

“Being the child of my thoughts, this album is the true face of the band – a well-fused combination of melodic black metal and groove metal the way we see it. As always, the album includes a separate unique story behind each song.”

“Our ambitions were through the roof on this release – we re-recorded and improved the lines for all the instruments, including the drums, bass, and even addinig some extra guitars, while Gleb’s [Sysoev] vocals sound as massive and crushing as always. Honesty and a natural aggressive sound are the qualities that distinguish independent artists from purely commercial ones these days, and we are happy that we can create music for the sake of art and not for just raking in some cash. We hope that our sound, punchy and somewhat scary, like a gust of cold northern wind in a seemingly empty home in the middle of the night will let you get fully immersed in the atmosphere that we embedded in the music – nine different stories related to darkness. Darkness in temptations, actions, soul, socium, thoughts – darkness in anything and everything you can possibly imagine. Don’t forget that each song has annotations, as we try to create real musical works of art that frighten with their beauty. And beauty is enchanting.”

The Black is available on SpotifyiTunes, Bandcamp, and other digital retailers.

Band Bio:

Second To Sun is a metal band from Saint Petersburg, Russia, founded in 2012 by its guitarist Vladimir Lehtinen. Unlike many modern metal bands, who tend to gain fans and spread their music using a more visual element – live performances, music videos, band image, etc., Second To Sun try to concentrate on the musical aspect more and use visual elements (artwork, etc.) to give more depth and back story to the music. The band’s music contains a unique blend of metal genres: on the one hand, it has the many rhythmic elements of groove metal; on the other hand, it continues the legacy of such classic Scandinavian black metal bands as Emperor, Mayhem, and Dakthrone.

Such diverse musical roots of the band protrude from Vladimir Lehtinen’s songwriting, Gleb Sysoev’s soul-crushing vocals and Fedor Borovsky’s groovy drum lines. The band releases two versions of each album – the vocal and the instrumental one. Everything the band does is 100% DIY and 100% independent – they aren’t signed to any labels and don’t outsource anything – everything is composed and recorded by the band’s members. Each individual instrumental composition is accompanied by unique artwork and a hefty description of the story the composition tells, which provides a deeper insight into the music, as well as the band’s inspiration and creative process. Second To Sun released their new album The Black on May 16, 2018.
