Barcelona’s Syberia will be releasing their forthcoming instrumental post-metal opus on May 6th via Blacklight Media Records. In anticipation of this release, the band have launched a new video for the second cut from the record, “Ain’t.Care.About.Bullets.”
The band adds their thoughts on the visual accompaniment for the song:
“With this video we want to draw attention to a very worrying issue in the United States of America: police violence against people of color.
“On the album, each song is about a specific case. We didn’t want to name names, but the cases are so well documented and well-known, that with the album insert in hand and a little research, the listener can easily figure out who each song is about.“
Having leaned in the direction of post-metal on 2019′s Seeds Of Change, SYBERIA have enthusiastically embraced the genre on fourth album Statement On Death. Transcending their origins as an instrumental rock band, they show many more sides to their songwriting without losing their unique signature sound. Comprised of five riveting tracks spread across 42 minutes, it covers a lot of musical ground, but never once do they lose the attention of the listener, taking them through numerous textured sonic peaks and valleys in beautiful style. “On each album we try not to repeat ourselves and look for things that we haven’t done so far,” states the band.
“When we start songwriting, we never do it following a specific plan. We always compose according to what we have heard at that time, normally we record riff ideas individually and take them to the rehearsal room. Once there, we assemble the pieces of the puzzle to find the desired song, and the result this time is a record that is darker than our previous ones but with the same bright moments.”
Statement On Death will be available on all digital platforms, CD digipak, and vinyl.
