Metal matriarch Medeia kicks off their 20th anniversary tour on September 1st along with brand new material. The band, who will release a new album next year via Playground, showcase the band’s revamped production machinery with today’s single “Superseptic“, which continues the darkly insanity-focused sound of last year’s single “A Cross to Bear“.
The new track itself is infectious deathcore at its finest with stunning vocal performances, inventive riffs and world-class production bundled together with a massive energy charge. Guitarist Samuli Peltola tells us about the song:
“Superseptic aims to combine catchiness and aggression in maximum proportions, while the distinctive riffs make it clear which band is once again on the warpath. The band’s future is underlined by a full-scale upgrade of the production machinery all the way from studio sessions to mixing and mastering. It seems that the boundaries of creating have completely disappeared, both in terms of songwriting and production, leaving only the free creative work that has always been at the core of Medeia.”
“Superseptic” music video was filmed at the historic first-of-a-kind Knotfest in the Nordic countries in summer 2022.
Formed in 2002, MEDEIA is truly a pioneering band in the Finnish alternative metal scene. During their career spanning over two decades, the band has released 5 albums whereas their latest effort and Playground-debut “Xenosis” saw daylight in 2019. The album reached Top 5 in Finland’s physical album charts and was supported by heavy touring. The band is also no stranger to international waters, having toured with Children of Bodom on their record breaking euro-tour as well as with The Ocean, Raised Fist and with Khroma on a co-headline tour through Europe.
