Doom band POEMA ARCANVS premiere ‘Pilgrim’ via Rolling Stone India

Rolling Stone India have premiered the track Pilgrim from the ‘Stardust Solitude’ album by Chilean doom metal band Poema Arcanvs and interspersed it along with a band interview. The article is a fantastic slice through of the band’s processes of music-making and also delves into the future of the band (seriously, fuck this virus!) You can listen to the track and read what Rolling Stone India had to say AT THIS LINK. Excerpt:

“Ahead of the full release of the album, there’s a despairing, suitably heavy new single called “Pilgrim”. Co-founder and guitarist Igor Leiva Benavides points out how, thematically, the song arrives at a point when the record’s protagonist “realizes that the answers he looks for are nowhere to be found.”

Chilean doom metal band Poema Arcanvs have built up a legendary status over the years, having been around since the ’90s to be precise and releasing one impressive album after the other. Inspired originally by the UK doom bands such as Paradise LostAnathama and My Dying Bride, they’ve forged a powerful, soulful sound which they have perfected over the years. Stardust Solitude is their sixth full length album where they take things to a different level, adding better dynamics and expanding the scope of the music. This is a beautiful album that unravels gracefully, revealing a wealth of variations and moods that few bands are able to create and sustain for the entire duration of the album. The more you listen to it, the more it entrances you with its gentle yet plaintive melodies and entreating vocals that remain with you like warnings from the other side. Dive into this immersive album and emerge a changed person, one rich with profound sensations and a more sentient outlook on life.
