Italian Technical Death Metal force HideousDivinity have released “Acheron, Stream of Woe”, the first track from their upcoming new concept EP “LV-426”. If you don’t recognize the title then it’s time to spend a day binge watching the classic Sigourney Weaver Franchise “Alien” ahead of the 23rd April release, probably after watching the lyric video featuring the stunning cover artwork by Colin Estrada. The EP, like it’s predecessor “Simulacrum” was produced by Stefan Morabito at 16th Cellar Studio and surprisingly features a rendition of “Delirium Trigger” by Coheed and Cambria.
The band comments: “’Acheron, Stream of Woe’ marks another step in our sound progression. Just like James Horner’s original score, we searched for all the dramatic and dissonant elements our music could achieve. It has been a great time, both the songwriting and the studio time. We felt good, we felt at home. Oh, and this time is about Aliens. Not a coincidence, for sure. A year has passed from the beginning of… all this. A year during which we all had to face our monsters. Very real ones. Enjoy.”
“We chose to concentrate on the story of Rebeca ‘Newt’ Jorden, the 6-year old girl rescued on the alien infested planetoid LV-426 by Ellen Ripley. We live the story from her point of view, a mixture of childhood’s happy life and memories cut off by the alien attack.”
