A Monument To Silence album released 18th June via Unique Leader Records
Progressive death metal quintet Alustrium have revealed their new single/video ‘Join the Dead’, taken from their highly-anticipated new album A Monument To Silence, out 18th June via Unique Leader Records.
The band comment: “Conceptually, ‘Join the Dead’ sets the stage for much of the story that is to come throughout A Monument to Silence. It was really important to us that the concept be matched instrumentally and vocally, and the result is a mix of chaos up front and heavier, darker instrumentation later in the song. The lyrics detail feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, as well as the initial consequences of rash decisions made in response. Like the rest of the record, while there is a literal, objective interpretation of the lyrics, we’ve also tried to create something that can be experienced subjectively and be meaningful to anyone.”
Emerging from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Alustrium are introducing the world to their unique form of progressive death metal. With intense, technical riffs and soulful ear-bending solos, Alustrium create a unique blend between melody and fierce brutality that sets them apart from the norm. Following up their 2020 EP Insurmountable, their forthcoming concept record A Monument to Silence further pushes the boundaries of contemporary heavy music.
Elements of Between the Buried and Me, Necrophagist, The Haunted, and Black Crown Initiate combine to create a thrilling an exhilarating effect. A melodic, intense, technically-gifted group, A Monument to Silence is an instantly gratifying record, that goes far beyond the already impressive sum of its parts.
In their history, Alustrium have opened for a wealth of similarly-talented bands, including Between the Buried and Me, Rivers of Nihil, Scar Symmetry, Suffocation, Dying Fetus, and Deicide.
