Progressive power-metal outfit FLIDAIS (pronounced: “FLUH” “DYE” “ISS”) have unleashed an epic single in “Calamity”, introducing their distinctive heavy style with a bang. Based out of London and Ontario, Canada, the quartet are preparing to unveil their new album Pathogen on January 27th, 2023.
“We are proud to present our first single ‘Calamity’ off of our new album Pathogen! This is in our opinion the perfect song to break you into our sound whilst showing a wide range of what we have to offer as a band. We hope this gets you excited for future FLIDAIS tunes!”
FLIDAIS’s origins are tracked back to Calvin and Josh playing together since they were teenagers until a fully formed a band line-up emerged around 2013, and they released their debut EP in 2016. 2020 saw the band re-established with a few line-up changes and now Pathogen marks the beginning of a new chapter.
The new concept album sees each song is based around a virus that turns out to be entirely in the mind. It starts out with obsession where motivation is running strong but eventually is overtaken by the virus, which then leads to an outbreak. Darkness is the manifestation of the virus which leads to another infection, which is followed by a calamity of the mind. It then leads to eradication where there is a connection to the spirit world where the infected is given another chance for redemption. Despair is when they are at an all time low then reprisal is the moment they decide to fight back and make things right
