Minneapolis-based Cinematic Metal outfit AfterTime are back with a larger than life and unapologetically epic new single “Infinite Legacy”. This new offering showcases the group’s potent blend of Symphonic Metal and vibrant score-driven influences with memorable arrangements and ambitious song structures that warrants repeat listens.
“Infinite Legacy” opens with a mellifluous piano & vocal melody and before long, the bands signature concoction of ferocious riffs, cinematic choral arrangements, orchestral layers and blistering rhythm section kicks in to get your fists pumping. Vocalist Sarah Wolf delivers intricate melodies that impeccably cut through the heavy instrumentation, highlighting her impressive range and dynamic interplay. Exuding ambition throughout the entirety of the track, listeners will be treated to infectious choruses, an addictive groove created by high tempo passages punctuated by open verses and dynamic sensibilities. AfterTime have once again utilised every weapon in their arsenal to bring you another merciless yet uplifting tune!
Guitarist Brad Sturgis speaks on the new single: “Infinite Legacy serves as a follow up to our album The Farthest Shore. The songs tell of how humanity has always had the urge to explore, make their own legacies, and carve their own paths across this world. The EP consists of two brand new songs, two revisited versions of classic AfterTime songs, and a special orchestral medley that recaps the journey!”
Coming off a successful release of their previous studio efforts such as “World We’ve Lost (2017)” and “The Fall Of Light (2016)” and “The Farthest Shore (2020)” which saw the band share stages alongside Epica, Hammerfall & Delain, AfterTime continue to prove their affinity towards high-quality production and willingness to expand their creative horizons. With their recent signing to Hard Drive Agency and the release of “Infinite Legacy”, AfterTime are ready to carve their way through the North American Heavy Metal scene and beyond!
