NEWS: Emetropia announce “An Acoustic Endeavor”!
Known for their energetic and dynamic approach with poetic and connected stories, Symphonic Metallers Emetropia have announced they will be releasing a new EP titled “An Acoustic Endeavor” on 24th of March. The record comprises four acoustic reimagining’s of the most beloved songs from their debut album “Equinox” with ”The Old Gods – Requiem” chosen as a single with an accompanying music video. Inspired by bands like Epica, Therion and Amorphis the band are keen to point out that there is more to this EP than meets the eye.
Vocalist Lisa explains how the requiem version of the song differentiates from the album version: “We wanted the EP versions to be something new and original, and not simply the same song with acoustic guitars. While the original song is fast and energetic, the lyrics tell a despairing story of never ending suffering, and thus, we felt that a ballad was the perfect fit for The Old Gods. The result is a solemn and mournful, yet beautiful, retelling.“
Keyboardist Liam adds: “We saw this as a chance to push our musical and production skills to the limit by recording symphonic metal songs in musical styles we had never played before! It became something of an acoustic endeavor for all of us; scary yet intriguing.”
