Post-progressive metal band Sunpocrisy just released new album "Eyegasm, Hallelujah!" on YouTube as a huge multimedia audio/visual opera. Check it out through the playlist below. Sunpocrisy comments:
“On November the 2nd I was traveling to Rome and started to work on live visuals projections for Sunpocrisy’s shows, twisting around the idea behind the artwork of Eyegasm, Hallelujah! and its video teaser. Fractals designs have always fascinated me and i was quite happy with the result I obtained with the album cover, but i wanted to push boundaries a little higher and integrate fractal animation I made with a more kaleidoscopic effect.
"The result was mesmerizing and I decided to explore every possibilities: post-production brought me to more than an hour of different reflections footages. I cut this main composition into sections and assigns songs on archetypes i see on different part of the motion picture and how those can be related to lyrics, sometimes with affinity. With this multimedia artifact I hope our listeners can feel overwhelmed by music and videos and reach at least the Eyegasm.“ More...
Post-progressive metal band Sunpocrisy has released an advance stream of a new song titled "Eyegasm" - listen in below. "Eyegasm" (ew...) is taken from forthcoming album "Eyegasm, Hallelujah!" that is due out November 1, 2015. The band also comments:
"'Eyegasm' is the opener song of the album, and represents the perfect bridge between 'Samaroid Dioramas' and what we’re going to face in the new record. Lyrics and music lead listeners through this new path, which is very different from the past world but with continuous recalls to it.
"From dreamy atmospheres to resounding distortions, 'Eyegasm' contains all the main characteristics of our sound today, to dive the listener into the wide concept described. Through complex guitars weavings and constant percussive patterns, this song gives the first taste of what you will experience during the entire listening of these 9 songs, a last physical and mental trip to reach the end: the hallelujah!"
The new album's track listing is as follows:
II: Mausoleum of the Almost
V. Of Barbs and Barbules
VI. Kairos Through Aion
VII. Gravis Vociferatur
VIII. Festive Garments
IX. Hallelujah! More...
Based on the title and album artwork I honestly can't even tell if this press release is a joke or not, but we'll go with "not" for the moment and just roll with it...
Sunpocrisy will release new record "Eyegasm, Hallelujah!" this coming November 1, 2015 on CD and digital formats. The album, described as a "progressive post-mental eargasm," will also be available soon in a vinyl gatefold 2XLP edition.
The project was born in 2007 as a death/progressive band and recorded the first EP called “Atman.” In 2010 the artistic ambitions of the band started to develop in an unpredictable way: songwriting became more complex, and the sheer death metal of the beginnings gave way to an expanded line up with three guitars and keyboard/electronics.
Sunpocrisy becomes a prog / post-metal beast with a wider scope and a huge palette. The next (il)logical step was "Samaroid Dioramas," which is available for streaming in full right here. Now following that release comes "Eyegasm, Hallelujah!" Check out the cover artwork here: More...
