Space Of Variations Reveals New Album Details

Unstoppable Ukrainian ultra-modern metalcore unit Space Of Variations have made a name for themselves in the international scene, but now take it to the absolute next level with their upcoming in-your-face full-length, "Imago," officially set for release on March 18, 2022 via Napalm Records.

"Imago" seamlessly mixes gut-punching hardcore riffs and catastrophic breakdowns with colorful electronics, brutalizing vocals and, at times, trance-like synth – exploring elements of djent, hip-hop and even hyperpop influence along the way. The album’s addictively erratic, emotive atmosphere echoes their spontaneous live performance; having previously toured with modern metal giants Jinjer, the four-piece relentlessly smashed European stages while captivating each listener with futuristic stylings reverberating the likes of Bring Me The Horizon, Architects, Norma Jean and LANDMVRKS.

Today, the band steps up their game with hard-hitting first single "Someone Else" –
loaded with aggressive screams, charging transitions and synth elements that leave no room for rest, the track delivers a promising glimpse of what fans can expect from the new album. Keep an eye on this futuristic metal monster!

Space Of Variations on "Someone Else":
“The ‘Someone Else’ video is a metaphor. It talks about individualism, talks about the originality of every one of us as human creations. Talks about how we all involved to social life. And how sometimes it feels like a pain. To play a role, and not being your real self is suffering. This video shows how a faceless crowd tries to destroy the individuality of a main character, tries to kill him, and tries to make him looks the same as they are.

"In this song, the character goes through stages of acceptance, realizing the facets of all the beautiful and terrible he has inside. Paradoxically, an internal puzzle becomes complete only through disassembling oneself. Acceptance of reality, no matter how good or bad it is, is sobering. This is IMAGO.

"Just keep your inner fire burning hot." More...

Every Time I Die Announces Breakup

Four of the five members of metalcore veterans Every Time I Die has announced that the band is no more, following a breakdown in communications and relationship with vocalist Keith Buckley. The band had said a month ago that they were working on resolving issues with Buckley but it now appears that they were unable to resolve them. A statement from the band reads as follows:

"While we hoped to come to an agreed upon legal statement that outlined the truth, we were informed today of something planned to be released not mutually agreed upon that consists of inaccuracies and controls a narrative to benefit one.

"There has been no direct communication with Keith, because it's either impossible for direct communication with him solely or we've been cut off to any and all communication by him himself.

"Every Time I Die was these 5 members, and we were never budging or accepting any changes. Simply, there is zero truth about the band continuing on with a new singer. Lastly, we wouldn't be where we are today without every single person that's backed the band in any & all ways. While we're extremely disappointed in how this was played out online in front of you, your support and the memories we have because of you all will always be cherished."

Keith Buckley has since alleged that the band were trying to remove him by uploading a legal document to his Instagram sent by Savur Law PC, a law firm which specialises in music, which asked him or his legal representative to contact the firm and discuss his seperation from the group. In the letter, he was also asked not to disparage the band or its members and not to use the band's name, logo or other intellectual property.
