NEWS: Virial premier “Technological Singularity”!

International Technical Death Metal band Virial have just unleashed a second new song in “Technological Singularity” from their forthcoming second album “Transhumanism“. Set to be released on 24th September via Vicious Instinct Records it marks the debut of Philip Dollinger on bass and Stefan Rojas on drums in a band divided between Italy and Austria who received critical acclaim for their debut “Organic Universe” in 2015. Mixed at Mordor Sounds Studio by Hannes Grossmann and mastered at Woodshed Studio by Victor Santura, the affair comprises twelve new cuts with this new track featuring the talents of none other than returning Obscura guitarist Christian Muenzner. Pre-orders for the album are of course available over at bandcamp

The band comments “We released the final track on the album as the final single because it is the most technical, diverse track and with a runtime of 7:34 minutes, the longest song on “Transhumanism”. It represents the final chapter of the album and tells the end of the chronological story, the technological singularity, where the AI gets so dominant, it collects all data on the planet ‘Aurelia’ and transforms it into a super massive, homogeneous, static sphere of nano-particles, prepared to exist for the remaining lifetime of the universe. The story can be seen as the arrival, the end of the biological evolution, the last judgement, or the prophecy as stated in many religious books. Furthermore, this is also a possible solution for the Fermi Paradox. The song is a continuous alternation between blast beats, classical guitar parts and orchestra and is crowned by a mind blowing, 1:10 minute long guitar solo by Christian Muenzner (Obscura, Alkaloid, Eternity’s End, Ex-Necrophagist). We are pretty happy about how this song turned out and hope that the listeners will enjoy it.”
