This new EP is coming up eight years after the "Suspended Animation Dreams" album. Tomer Pink, the band's song writer & mastermind, states: "We got so excited while writing this long due follow up that we decided to release a 2 tracks EP as a teaser for the album, this gonna blow people mind!"
The "Home" EP will feature a title track and a cover version of "Beyond The Pale" by The Mission. The recording line up includes drummer Mathan Shmuely of Orphaned Land, bassist Mike Feldman of Novembers Doom, and an Arabic orchestra including violins, oud, bazuki, and lyra. More...
SUBTERRANEAN MASQUERADE mastermind Tomer Pink has issued the following update:
"Some songs are already recorded without vocals while some others are waiting to me to finish demoing. I do some of the recording in my studio thus I allow myself to take the time and rearrange things conveniently to make a hell of an album! For now I can revel that the third piece in 'X' trilogy will be entitled 'In Pastille Colors'. I've been traveling the world quite a bit the past few years so you could expect to hear some of these influences along with the regular SUBMASQ twist."
"Honestly, I do take the time and hoping to make an album I will be happy with for years to come. In the meantime, I promise to let you guys hear some new stuff soon. There is one song from the 'Suspended Animation Dreams' session that was never released (our heavier one yet, I think) so I might release this along with some new tracks. We'll see!"
Hailing from various parts of the USA, SUBTERRANEAN MASQUERADE was originally formed in 1997 by Tomer as a means of self-expression of his deepest and darkest thoughts and emotions.
In lieu to their upcoming release, "Suspended Animation Dreams" (out June 21st), Subterranean Masquerade revamped their website to reflect artwork based on the album. Check it out at www.submasq.com.
