Canada’s Skyless Aeons are unveiling their next single “Dimensional Entrapment” via NoCleanSinging HERE.
The premise of the single is how humans are bound to the limits of their finitude, and the only things that give us comfort and relief are the things that will eventually destroy us. “Dimensional Entrapment” provides some of the most dissonant material the band has written, with subtle nods to Ulcerate and Portal that grows into a powerful melody.
A unique blend of extreme metal styles come forth on the album “Drain the Sun”, which is loosely intended to be a concept album, with a much darker, more focused and tense sound than fans will expect. The title is a metaphor: “the sun” refers to whatever it is that gives us life, light, purpose, structure, or pleasure. In countless forms, humans have a habit of taking something that is good for us and abusing it until it literally destroys us. The band explains this further:
“Even if you’re aware of it happening (and a lot of us are), the machinations of society and the bleak reality of everyday living force us towards the sun in order to cope. Everyone has their sun – that thing that makes life bearable and worth living – and everyone will drain their sun until it cannot provide any more energy, collapses in on us and we are sent hurtling into the abyss. This album is our artistic interpretation of both where we’re at and a terrible warning of what we’re headed towards.”
This new album adds more progressive, technical, and yet somehow more deliberate and doomy influences simultaneously, leading to a more progressive death metal sound.
