Unbridled tech death from the Icelandic depths with Kantor visuals of grandiose scale.
If we've learned anything from Iceland in recent years, it's that they deliver elite tier metal on a consistent basis. OPHIDIAN I is no exception and on July 16th, the band will issue their Season of Mist label debut, Desolate, for all to bask in. In true Icelandic fashion, OPHIDIAN sport soaring melodies amidst ruthless aggression and today's arrival of lead single Spiral To Oblivion sets expectations high for a full-length that delivers with force.
OPHIDIAN comment on the new single:
"‘Spiral To Oblivion’ was among the first songs we wrote for the album and has been a band-favourite since its inception. With this song we wanted to make a very death metal oriented song but keep prominent focus on the attributes we were striving for with the album and sound of the band as a whole - memorable melodies and solid structure & composition. To sustain apt harmonious guidance, the guitar leads and melodies became a centrepiece of this song. As with many other songs on the album the guitar leads serve as the central source of melody and are present throughout the bulk of the song. We feel that we ended up with a full-force, tech-death banger that we can’t wait to play live. Our friend Ásgeir Helgi did a great job on the video; capturing the spirit and essence of OPHIDIAN I."
