Existem To Release New Album

Existem is proud to announce the release of the band's first full-length record, "Years of Winter," this coming September 14th, 2012. Existem commented:

"Composed by the band in the year following the release of their self-titled EP, Years of Winter features 53 minutes of new music across 11 tracks. The album is centered on the concept of environmental degradation – how Earth has suffered at the hands of man, and what, if anything, can be done to reverse the damage.

"Years of Winter was recorded in the spring of 2012 with producer Anthony Richkas. It introduces several new concepts and influences to the established Existem sound – among them, the band’s first instrumental songs, the introduction of new drummer Matthew Chipman, unusual instrumentation such as the glockenspiel and mandolin, and guitarist Chris Gochis stepping into the role of lead vocalist.

"We set out to diversify our songwriting as much as we could. It’s a much more colorful record than the EP. There’s so many new elements that people might not expect to hear from us, or even to hear on a metal record. It really is a true progression of our sound.

"The album will be made available digitally on our bandcamp for a price of $7, with a CD format release to follow. Listen to the first single, 'Slay the Giant,' below on the band’s YouTube page." More...
