Almost a year has passed since the release of Equinox. Today we proudly present information and artwork for our new EP An Acoustic Endeavor, set to be released on the 24th of March.
An Acoustic Endeavor features four acoustic versions of the most beloved songs from Equinox.
“We saw this as a chance to push our musical and production skills to the limit by recording symphonic metal songs in musical styles we had never played before! It became something of an acoustic endeavor for all of us; scary yet intriguing.” explains keyboardist Liam.
The single The Old Gods – Requiem will be released on the 23rd of February—the anniversary of Equinox—together with a music video.
Vocalist Lisa explains how the requiem version of the song differentiates from the album version:
“We wanted the EP versions to be something new and original, and not simply the same song with acoustic guitars. While the original song is fast and energetic, the lyrics tell a despairing story of never ending suffering, and thus, we felt that a ballad was the perfect fit for The Old Gods. The result is a solemn and mournful, yet beautiful, retelling.“
We will celebrate with a release party at Kulturgaraget, Avesta, on the 25th of March. We will be playing two sets (one regular and one acoustic) and the melodic metalcore act LÝSIS will be joining us for this intimate evening.
