ALKALOID stellen weiteren neuen Song vor

Am 15. September erscheint mit „Numen“ das neue Album der deutschen Extreme-Prog-Metaller ALKALOID über Season Of Mist. Für scheuklappenlose Fans steht jetzt bereits der zweite Song zur Vorverkostung bereit. Auf ihrem dritten Album tobt die Band sich mit 70 Minuten Spielzeit kreativ aus.

Morean (Gesang, Gitarre, Konzept) kommentiert die neue Veröffentlichung folgendermaßen: We’ve all been around the block a few times by now as metal musicians. The feeling that we’ve outgrown the narrow niche of pure extreme metal was a main motivator to start this band in the first place, ten years ago. The ‘prog’ tag is handy for us because, per definition, it already encompasses a wider range of possible styles and influences we can get away with than any one specific metal genre. This means we could ensure from the beginning that we’ll always be able to write whatever we want, no matter how crazy our ideas become. The heart of this band is always the songwriting, and we all like complex and virtuosic music in all its diverse manifestations. However, we do share a love for death metal as the smallest common denominator in the band, and we wanted to make sure no one thinks that just because we include melodies, clean guitars, and influences from other genres, we’d automatically sacrifice the brutality and relentless esthetic of extreme metal.“
