Cult of Parthenope Label announced:
Extreme metallers EIGHT LIVES DOWN (United Kingdom) unveil the cover artwork and tracklist of their upcoming debut full-length album ‘Humans’, set for release via Cult Of Parthenope on 5th September 2020.
Singer and founder Aliki Katriou has commented:
“We are pleased to finally announce the first details of our debut record ‘Humans’. The album explores aspects of the human condition and mental tendencies. Perspectives are often shifted within songs, jumping from rage to fear to sociopolitical statements and the confusion they cause. This is reflected in the music, which plays with time signatures, song structure and a variety of musical influences. We are very proud of this album and excited to share more details about ‘Humans’ very soon, so stay tuned!”
The band has its roots in groove and thrash metal but constantly branches out stylistically incorporating influences from prog, death and black metal, as well as various other musical genres such as punk, blues and traditional folk music, while vocals range from low growls and high screams to clean and even operatic phrases. All of this creates a truly unique sound, unmistakably heavy and angry, yet refreshingly different and unpredictable.
‘Humans’ was mixed & mastered by Dan Baune at Noise Foundry Productions while drums were recorded at A-Tonal Recording Studio.
