Post-metal/hardcore thunderstorm INGRINA unleash massive debut single off upcoming album « Siste Lys » on Medication Time Records!
French post-metal thunderstorm INGRINA share a relentless and tormented first single taken from their upcoming sophomore album « Siste Lys », out November 27th on Medication Time Records (world) and A Tant Rêver Du Roi (France). Stream « Now » over at Invisible Oranges website!
« Now » is the first excerpt from INGRINA‘s upcoming sophomore album « Siste Lys ». The French sextet creates highly evocative and apocalyptic soundscapes with a strong sense of storytelling, in the vein of bands like Year Of No Light, Rosetta, Aussitôt Mort or Alcest. The five elements collide in a blast of post-metal, post-hardcore and shoegaze for an overall mind-boggling sensory experience.
The band discusses the song themes: « Now » was written in the summer of 2020, we were sheltered from light and drought in between two pandemic peaks. This song is more straightforward and visceral, as if the lack of energy resulting from these troubled times had to outbreak at some point. « Now » depicts that moment in time when the present freezes everlastingly. Whereas life seeks to move freely, our civilization, always failing at considering the living, violently cloisters life in the cages of the irrevocable and almighty order. »
Experience the firepower of INGRINA’s new single « Now »
Propelled by two drums, three guitars, a bass and ghostly vocals, French six-piece INGRINA conveys the melancholy caught between everything that is collapsing and what is beginning to emerge. Like on their debut record « Ether Lys », new album « Siste Lys » is based on a metaphorical tale of the geological and oceanic trials life forms go through, when faced with civilizational nightmares. The album features previously unreleased and entirely reworked songs and new ones that are a product of those troubled times. It was entirely recorded, mixed and mastered by the band amidst the pandemic.
« Siste Lys » will see a November 27th vinyl and digital release through Medication Time Records (world) and A Tant Rêver Du Roi (France), as well as on CD through Tokyo Jupiter Records (Japan only).
INGRINA New album « Siste Lys »
Out November 27th on Medication Time Records
INGRINA is the name of a remembrance. A sensation of vital ecstasy that this civilization strives to make the living forget. It is also the name of an escape. The one rushing towards less hostile underworlds in which time itself is overtaken. Ingrina is the swaying experience of an unfinished yet longed-for desertion.
The French six-piece’s sophomore album « Siste Lys » depicts the reappearance of the jailers, the walls and the bodies, from the turbulent swampy life forms, heckled by the waters. The vital movement is gradually fading away, as the light behind the walls disappears. Lives now lodge themselves in the ether of consciousness without being able to take on neither body nor matter. The intensity of the internal madness is equaled only by the absolute paralysis of the physical movement outside. The world is so frozen, the bones so solidified, that life takes refuge in the heart of a narrow and egotistical nothingness that only leads to insanity. « Siste Lys » tells the story of these lives trying to break the civilizational ice that imprisons them. To finally give substance to the ecstatic dreams, whose memory is already faltering.
« Siste Lys » was entirely recorded, mixed and mastered by the band amidst the pandemic. It will see a November 27th worldwide release on vinyl and digital through Medication Time Records, as well as on CD through Tokyo Jupiter Records (Japan only).
