EUROPEAN TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT

Today we can proudly announce that we will be joining Visions of Atlantis and Secret Rule for a European tour in May.

Our keyboardist Liam comments: “Wow, this is such an amazing opportunity for us! I think I can speak on behalf of all in Emetropia, that we can’t wait to get on the road for the first time—together with such incredibly talented musicians—and perform Equinox for all you guys.” 

Guitarist Olle further adds to the excitement. “Fans across Europe have been asking us when we’ll be showing up in their hometowns for a while now. It’s an amazing feeling to finally be able to get out there and hopefully meet some of our long-time listeners.”

Equinox is OUT NOW on every major platform!

Emetropia’s debut album EQUINOX is finally available worldwide!

As a concept album, our vocalist and lyricist Lisa explains the Equinox Saga: ”Equinox is a story about a small boy who finds himself captivated by a story told by the fireplace at night. In this tale, the kings of Summer and Winter rage a never-ending battle for the throne. Saddened by the fact that they are trapped in a cycle of bloodshed and suffering, the boy sets out to convince the Fey King and Frost King to make peace. However, while the Great Wheel turns, can it ever stop spinning?”

Labeled as symphonic metal mixing power and progressiveness, our keyboardist and main songwriter Liam provides more details of what the album sounds like: “Equinox represents everything about Emetropia. After half a decade of songwriting and developing as musicians, we’ve finally completed an album that sounds just like we envisioned it. There will be straight forward power metal, there will be mind-boggling progressive metal, and there will be bombastic symphonic metal over the course of its 53 minute run time! In the end, Equinox provides listeners with nine diverse and unique songs, all displaying the different sides of Emetropia to look forward to. We can’t wait to finally unveil the complete Equinox Saga”.

Full album tracklist:

  1. Seasonal Warfare (Re-Imagined)
  2. A Summer Breeze (Re-Imagined)
  3. That Fateful Night
  4. Lord of the Blizzards (Re-Imagined)
  5. The First Leaf Falls
  6. Fall’s First Storm
  7. The Old Gods
  8. Procession of the Kings (Re-Imagined)
  9. His Final Endeavour

“The First Leaf Falls” is out NOW on every major platform

Emetropia’s latest single The First Leaf Falls is now available to listen on every major streaming platform.

Their singer and lyricist Lisa Wallenberg reflects on what role the song plays in the telling of Equinox’ story: “You could say that The First Leaf Falls is the climax of the album’s second act. All the themes and concepts that have been introduced earlier sort of join together to form this grand epic, where the different characters finally meet and we see the two forces clash with each other. You clearly notice the tonal shifts as the song progresses, moving between mellow and aggressive before culminating in a triumphant climax. I think this is a song where the music tells the story as much as the lyrics do.”

Emetropia’s debut album “Equinox” will be released on the 23rd of February and will be celebrated with a release show at Palatset, Linköping together with the local power metal act Razor Attack.

Emetropia announce the new single “The First Leaf Falls”

Today we can proudly announce that our third and final single “The First Leaf Falls” will be released on the 19th of January.

Our singer and lyricist Lisa Wallenberg reflects on what role the song plays in the telling of Equinox’ story: “You could say that The First Leaf Falls is the climax of the album’s second act. All the themes and concepts that have been introduced earlier sort of join together to form this grand epic, where the different characters finally meet and we see the two forces clash with each other. You clearly notice the tonal shifts as the song progresses, moving between mellow and aggressive before culminating in a triumphant climax. I think this is a song where the music tells the story as much as the lyrics do.”

It is not only the story that changes tone, as our drummer Oscar Heikkinen elaborates: “The song has always been appreciated live, as it starts off as sort of a ballad but quickly evolves to something way more powerful and energetic. The First Leaf Falls is also the second longest song on the album, which gives us ample time to explore the different sides of Emetropia. Throughout the song, there’s everything from melancholic parts with some of Lisa’s greatest vocal performances accompanied by Liam at the piano to the fastest and most aggressive solo section anyone in the band has ever recorded!”

“Seasonal Warfare (Re-Imagined)” is out NOW on every major platform

Emetropia’s latest single Seasonal Warfare (Re-Imagined) is now available to listen on every major streaming platform.

As the opening song of the album, Seasonal Warfare sets the stage for the entire story. The band’s lead guitarist Olle describes the new single as unique. “On an album where most songs are fairly complex, Seasonal Warfare stands out as being structurally quite simple. As a prog metal fan, I tend to gravitate more towards the former, but sometimes it feels good to play a no-bullshit metal song with great energy and a catchy chorus. Liam’s orchestrations and Lisa’s amazing vocals really take this one to another level!”

Emetropia announce the new single “Seasonal Warfare (Re-Imagined)”

Today we are proud to announce that our second single Seasonal Warfare (Re-Imagined) will be released on Wednesday 17th of November. The song is the second single from our upcoming debut album Equinox which will be released in early 2022.

As the opening song of the album, Seasonal Warfare sets the stage for the entire story. According to Olle, our lead guitarist, the new single is unique. “On an album where most songs are fairly complex, Seasonal Warfare stands out as being structurally quite simple. As a prog metal fan, I tend to gravitate more towards the former, but sometimes it feels good to play a no-bullshit metal song with great energy and a catchy chorus. Liam’s orchestrations and Lisa’s amazing vocals really take this one to another level!”

The new single introduces a “re-imagined” label which will play an integral part in the upcoming debut album. Our keyboardist Liam elaborates on the unusual label: 

“The re-imagined versions of our old EP-songs is the result of years of improvements as musicians but also as a band, which allowed us to record new versions that bring justice to what we originally envisioned. Everything from the individual studio performances to our production skills have reached another level. I truly believe that all of this makes the re-imagined versions sound like new songs”

The single will be accompanied with a music video which will be premiered in the South American webzine “Metal Addiction”.
