Leprous release new song “From the Flame” from upcoming album ‘Malina’

Norway’s LEPROUS are rolling out the campaign for their much-anticipated new fifth studio album “Malina” (Out August 25th, 2017 via InsideOutMusic) by debuting its first single and video “From The Flame” today.

Watch the video for “From The Flame”, which was directed by David Solbjørg of Twitchy Films, here:

The band checked in with the following comment about “From The Flame”:
“From the Flame” is definitely one of our favourite tracks from the album, with a strong hook and memorable melodies. Despite it sounding big and catchy, it also sounds pretty organic and it has a depth to it. We’re super proud of the son and feel it represents LEPROUS 2017 very well!”

And video director David Solbjørg of Twitchy Films added about the clip:
“It’s always fun and challenging to work with Leprous. This time around we chose to shoot with RED 8K cameras and brand new colour science (ipp2) to get as atmospheric shots as possible in a demanding low light environment.”

The track-listing for “Malina” reads as follows:

LEPROUS – “Malina”:
1. Bonneville
2. Stuck
3. From The Flame
4. Captive
5. Illuminate
6. Leashes
7. Mirage
8. Malina

10. The Weight Of Disaster

“Malina” will be available as Jewelcase CD and Digital Download, but also as limited edition Mediabook CD (with extended booklet and the bonus-track “Root”) and as Gatefold 2LP on 180gr. vinyl (with a poster, the bonus-track “Root” and the entire album on CD).

Following a hugely successful European tour as support to label-mates Devin Townsend Project earlier this year, LEPROUS wrapped up the work on “Malina” with producer David Castillo at Ghost Ward Studio in Sweden, while mixing duties were once again taken care of by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. The album’s artwork was designed by Corey Meyers.

Cydemind stream their new album ‘Erosion’

Cydemind stream their new album ‘Erosion’

Montreal-based Cydemind will release their first full length album ‘Erosion’ today, May 26th. The album is the follow-up to their 2014 debut EP ‘Through Mist and Ages’. Now you can listen to the album exclusively here.

The band had this to say about the new album, “We’re very excited to finally release Erosion. We’ve been working on it for so long; to finally launch it feels like we’ve reached the summit of a mountain that took 5 years to climb. We hope you’ll appreciate the scenery as much as we do. Thanks for supporting us and here’s to many more albums!”

Influenced by bands such as Symphony X, Dream Theater, Haken, Plini, Rush along with classical, jazz and progressive rock, the album offers a refreshing take on progressive music that is sure to attract interest from a wide audience, especially with classically trained violinist Olivier Allard, who leads the listener throughout the different moods of their compositions.

“Erosion” was recorded in Montreal at The Grid with producer Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy, The Agonist, Beyond Creation, Neuraxis) along with additional recording of grand piano done at Studio 270.

The album consists of six compositions including a 27 minute masterpiece of the release’s title track, making it CYDEMIND‘s most ambitious project to date. The album artwork was done by drummer and band co-founder Alexandre Dagenais along with lyrical poems included with the release written by pianist Camille Delage. The poems describe each composition as the album gravitates around the theme of nature and its persistence through time.
