Italialainen progressiivista metallia soittava The Wind Covenant on julkaissut uuden kappaleensa ”Beyond The Mortal Sight” musiikkivideon kera. Biisi löytyy bändin tulevalta EP:ltä ”Hiraeth”, joka julkaistaan Seek and Striken kautta 8. päivä maaliskuuta.

”One of the most enjoyable aspects of being a
band, for us, is engaging in creative and inspiring writing sessions together. When we began the writing process for ”Hiraeth”, our primary goal was to craft a collection of songs that felt uniquely exciting to us. With this EP, our focus was on creating a solemn, melancholic, and heart-wrenching vibe. We aimed to blend elements from various genres reflecting our musical backgrounds, including melodic hardcore, black-gaze and classical music, while expanding on our metal-core and death-core roots. The new songs place less emphasis on riffs – although they remain a significant part of our sound – instead, they serve more as a frame than a centerpiece. Throughout the writing and production process, we deliberately prioritized the emotion behind the songs as our guiding compass. This intentional shift resulted in a more personal and unique outcome.

“Our new track, ’Beyond The Mortal Sight,’ explores the legacy we leave behind after our departure. As we navigate life, our decisions often aim to make a lasting impact through our achievements, yet we may overlook the consequences these choices have on our personal connections with our loved ones. When we’re no longer here, what remains and how we are remembered are primarily the good and bad actions we’ve committed towards those closest to us. The writing process began with the instrumentals, and the vocals and lyrics were subsequently crafted to complement them. A few iterations were made to ensure the seamless cohesion of the music and vocals. Due to the intensity of the message and the emotional lyrics, we believe that this song stands out as one of the most defining tracks on the EP.

”Our main goal is to guide listeners through an emotive journey, inviting them to appreciate not only the genre essentials (impactful breakdowns and riffs), but also the deeply personal lyrics, unique sound elements, melodic intricacies and a solemn mood that transcends genres. If you’re looking for a band that brings a different flavor to the scene, we encourage you to give us a listen.”
