“Concordance” is the latest EP from Canadian melodic death metal act Varius and now, their single “Lament of Dissonance” has a lyric video to go with it. Varius (various in Latin) pride themselves on being diverse, experimental, and constantly challenging the constraints of genres.  This track was originally written as piano parts by drummer Vlad Prokhorov and then reworked for guitar and bass.

This song has the most traditional chorus part of any Varius song to date and incorporates a little bit of clean backing vocals. After the first few verses, the song gives way into even more crushing riffs and a strong guitar solo. The end of the song transitions into one of their signature Varius experimental moments, which takes the listener through a jazzy outro. Lyrically, the song describes a brilliant creative person cracking under the pressure of expectations of his audience. The band explains the premise behind the EP and further detail the track:

“We think this album represents a diverse but consistently heavy listening experience. All four songs are distinct in their approach and theme; they are almost representative of four different “subgenres” of metal. All four songs are consistently heavy and sound like they are related, as they should. We can thank our recording engineer Eddie Lucciola (414 Recordings) for the consistency in production. The song structures, riffs, and lyrics are where most of the diversity lies. The lead single, ‘Lament of Dissonance’, is both a straightforward and experimental listening experience. The song has a simple, catchy structure and some different grooves by our standards. That song also has an interesting twist at the end. “Lament of Dissonance” definitely represents both the heaviness and the diversity of ‘Concordance’.”

Varius’ open-minded and experimental approach to melodic death metal is recommended for fans of Hypocrisy, Lamb of God, and Death.
