Exist Immortal is a huge leap forward for the ever-evolving prog metallers, showcasing their inventive approach to song writing and world-class technical skill. The album also features some very special guests; vocalists: Joe Rosser (Sikth), Dilan Alves (Harbinger), Luke Griffin (Acrania, Human Error and more), as well as guitar virtuoso Moray Pringle.
On the upcoming full-length album, the band comment:
“We are very excited to present our latest, self-titled, full length album. For us this is a culmination of a lot of work, building and evolving. We bring back a lot of the heavier elements from our older releases while keeping a lot of the aesthetics and layers from Triptych. As musicians we have always struggled with where to place ourselves amongst our peers and always written music we wanted to make over intentionally fitting into existing trends. We feel that this album is by far our most accomplished and self-assured record to date, reincorporating harsh vocals while exploring new territory on the guitar side of things”.
