Richmond, VA band Iochroma design these intense audio experiences with stories and progressive-metal tendencies at their core.
The aptly titled band and project Pain with Cycle of Hate hit the scene with a uniquely creative, unpredictable fusion of contemporary sound-design & the classic roar of heavy metal.
You quickly realise the sheer passion, precision & alternative, uninhibited creative freedom that has crafted this album.
Explosive guitar-work & heavy distortion meet with stylish riffs and a likeable level of space – conceptually & stylistically – as ARRAYS’ brand new album LIGHT YEARS pours into the room.
Re-igniting the original strength & expression of doom metal, yet also introducing a band with fresh ideas, poetic framing, and powerful unity as musicians.
Heavy, hardcore metal of the highest order – blending the darkest lyrics & the rawest screams with a distorted rock soundscape & fragments of electronic sound-play.
“Some people want to achieve super stardom and that’s great and all, but if I can make enough money to be some what comfortable with music, I’d be happy.”
Stylishly blending powerful soundscape design, with equal parts melody and screams, the track offers a compelling narrative that provokes thought and simultaneous furthers the eerie, unsettling aura of the ambiance.
Precisely the right kind of song to re-ignite the fire and fierceness that is the 3Mind Blight signature style.
I think people turn to heavier music to find truth, understanding and to be a part of something real. Rock and metal music usually tends to be honest and upfront about issues and situations and circumstances, instead of being about “what do people want to hear?”
Blending elements of Slipknot, Korn & even the less heavier artists of a simpler time, the sound meanders in a creatively unique fashion, crafting its own clear identity along the way.
“I make this music for me because it is my way of venting and artistically expressing my emotions in a constructive way instead of going online and complaining or doing other things.”
