The new single ‘Labyrinth‘ is streaming now via Metal Injection. The single offers a taste of Epoch Of Chirality‘s upcoming album ‘Nucleosynthesis‘, releasing July 23.
Richard How commented: “Really excited to release ‘Labyrinth’! It’s the first of two singles to support the launch of my debut Sci-fi Metal album ‘Nucleosynthesis’, coming out 23rd July!”
Epoch of Chirality brings an epic amalgamation of metal with soundscapes straight out of an 80s Sci-fi movie soundtrack. Richard How, based in the South West of England, is the experienced multi-instrumentalist, composer and self-confessed Sci-fi geek behind the project. The debut album Nucleosynthesis follows the release of the Dawn of Chirality EP in 2020 which saw the project begin to emerge into our world; offering a tantalising taste of what is to come.
Epoch of Chirality has been quietly developing with Richard over the past twenty years. Pushing the boundaries of the metal genre is something so many strive to achieve but successfully combining elements of both acoustic and synthesized instruments is no mean feat. The presence of those instantly recognisable nostalgic synths initiates the dimension shift away from this world into another realm. The traditional heavy elements introduce an intensity that elevates the soundscape. Leaving no musical style or instrument off limits, experimentation and exploration is clearly rooted in the creative process. Whether exploring galaxies lightyears away or crossing through portals between fantasy worlds, Nucleosynthesis launches into a journey through the wonderful and the unknown.
