Canadian progressive metaller’s Fractal Cypher are premiering a new track, “The Grandeur Of It All.”
“The Grandeur Of It All” comes off the band’s “mini-album” Prelude To An Impending Outcome which is due out on November 8.
Prelude To An Impending Outcome was produced by Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy, The Agonist, Beyond Creation).
Guitarist Vincent Bruneau says this of “The Grandeur Of It All:”
“‘The Grandeur of It All’ is definitely more energetic and straight forward, with back beats on drums, rock n roll riffs on guitars and catchy vocal lines in choruses and verses. There’s a “bluesy” vibe in the song that is quite obvious all the way through, but we keep it progressive in terms of the song structure, dynamics and tempo changes. ‘Let’s have fun!’ is the mood of this song.”
The artwork for Prelude To An Impending Outcome was done by Silent Q Design out of Montreal.
The band adds:
“’Prelude To An Impending Outcome’ is a mini album of 4 songs that are completely different from one to another to create a maximum roller coaster effect and make it non linear and interesting to listen to. The clash of style is more important and more obvious than our previous album, but the songs have gained in maturity in term of songwriting and sound. The vibe of this mini-album is really more intimate, due to the lyrics and the overall ambiance/universe of the songs. The melodic side of the band is still really present, offering catchy vocal lines and outstanding solos all over the songs.”
