NEWS: On the darkest nights, art is life for Embryo!
Italian Melodic Death Metal act Embryo have cracked open the curtain and offered a first glimpse of brutality from their forthcoming fifth album “A Vivid Shade on Misery” with one called “Darkest Lights”. Inspired by Michelangelo Merisi alias Caravaggio, an Italian painter active in Rome for most of his artistic life, the album is a concept piece that follows on from 2017’s “A Step Beyond Divinity” which was inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci. Recorded in the summer of 2021 with Nile drummer George Kollias gracing the kit across all eight tracks, the album will be released on 17th March via Rockshots Records.
The band comment: “With “A Vivid Shade on Misery” we want to have listeners dive into our world by giving them brutal and atmospheric music melted together in the way we love to do plus having Kollias drum on this new album, one of the best drummers in the world, is just an absolute honour. Overall, fans will find this album has the “Embryo” matrix, there’s no doubt about that. It will be a more direct record and its songs make up a pattern that takes the listener on a journey through torments and anxieties, but which at the same time gives him pure energy”
