Tanagra - "Meridiem" (album stream)

Ο δίσκος των Tanagra "Meridiem"
Ο νέος δίσκος των Tanagra κυκλοφορεί ήδη. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Meridiem" και "βγήκε" προ ημερών. Οι Tanagra μας έρχονται από το Πόρτλαντ, δημιουργήθηκαν πριν από εννέα χρόνια, αρέσκονται στο μελωδικό metal κι έχουν κυκλοφορήσει ένα demo και δύο "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους...

Δελτίο τύπου: «A noticeable evolution from their first album (2015's None of This is Real), Tanagra's second release turns up the dial on everything that made the band stand out the first time around: The compositions are diverse and cinematic, with a stoic undercurrent and emotional intensity that brings out the theatrical side of the band, while the progressive rock-influenced elements rise to much greater prominence than before.

Complex yet compelling rhythms interweave with vibrant vocal arrangements, transcendent soloing, and varying instrumental textures in a lush harmonic landscape. Meridiem is Tanagra sounding more epic, more polished, and more heavy than ever before. This is progressive metal at its most powerful.»

Tanagra: «Meridiem' was us taking primary influence from classic prog rock and orchestral black metal alongside our classic power metal sound, with symphonic arrangements, multi-layered choral vocals, and moody mellotrons combining to make an atmosphere that sounds like nothing else.

The diverse set of songs have a little something for everyone, from furious blast beats to smooth jazz piano solos and everything in between. Our main ambitions when writing were to make everything proggy and epic, and we pushed the songs as hard as we could on that. It's a special album for all of us, with the meaning behind every riff and lyric. We're excited to finally unleash it upon the world, and we hope people enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed writing it.»

Bio: «Formed out of the love of science fiction, fantasy, and theatrical heavy metal storytelling, Tanagra hit the Portland, USA metal scene in 2011 with epic, symphonic, progressive power metal with lyrical content about original fantasy/sci-fi settings, Magic: The Gathering, historical tales, and other nerdy themes.

In 2015, they released their debut album, None of This is Real, an energetic collection of American power metal showcasing their love for complex arrangements and lengthy songs which garnered critical acclaim from a multitude of publications around the world.

In the time following their debut release, the members found a deep love for progressive rock/metal and symphonic black metal, and in writing new material found ways to combine the sounds of bands like IQ, Anekdoten, Caladan Brood, and Borknagar into their existing American power metal framework. In 2016, Tanagra entered the studio with the fruits of their labors to begin recording their ambitious second album, titled Meridiem, slated for global release April 26, 2019.»
