Octoploid premiere single with video for “Beyond The Aeons” opening track ‘The Dawns In Nothingness [feat. Mikko Kotamäki]’

Author Benedetta Baldin - 23.5.2024

From death metal to prog but also folk: with its wide rage of influences, Octoploid’s forthcoming debut album “Beyond The Aeons” (due out on July 5, 2024 via Reigning Phoenix Music) takes the listener to its very own world. In anticipation of the offering, the band led by bassist Olli-Pekka “Oppu” Laine’s (Amorphis, Barren Earth, Mannhai) present a second digital single off the record today. Continuing the list of prestigious guests, Mikko Kotamäki (Swallow The Sun etc.) lends his distinctive vocals to The Dawns In Nothingness, the album opening track which opens the gate to “Beyond The Aeons” in the form of fateful peal of bells, cawing craws and acoustic guitar tunes. The eventful song straightly raises the bar with its driving yet dark character, intermitted by a handful of wonderfully psychedelic guitar/keyboard solo parts, for what may be one of the most expected death-prog albums of the year.

Stream/purchase the track:

This track is an unlikely marriage between black and death metal, rock and medieval monk chants, rounded up by SWALLOW THE SUN vocalist Mikko Kotamäki. Even though the texts are very personal, the gloomy lyricism is not always to be taken literally. That’s just a part of the classic doom metal ethos in its finest! Olli-Pekka “Oppu” Laine
