LETTERS FROM THE COLONY - launch music video! - 2017-12-08

2017-12-08 - On February 16th, prog extreme metal architects LETTERS FROM THE COLONY will guide listeners into their world of math metal, crushing death elements and virtuosic shoegaze moments, all united in their debut album »Vignette«. After announcing their signing to Nuclear Blast, a calm before the storm prevailed, but now the five young Swedes from Borlänge are ready to attack with a mesmerising music video for their first single 'Erasing Contrast'. The new clip hits with a surreal intensity and you can watch it here:

Singer Alexander Backlund comments:
"We're proud to share the first single off of our debut album »Vignette«. 'Erasing Contrast' saw it's completion shortly after I joined the band, and is in many ways the song that set this whole thing in motion for us. The lyrics — which were my first musical contribution — are about this sort of phantom self that haunts all of us; our ideal selves as seen by ourselves or others. We're all born as blank slates, but along our various walks of life we construct a false perspective.

We're endlessly comparing our triumphs and failings to manufactured realities sold to us by the media, or by our peers. From birth we're told of all the things that we could be, but in a world where anyone can aspire to be anything the strong prey on the weak while the rest of us are left to carry the burden of infinite potential. Our self-image will always stand in contrast to all of the things we could have achieved, should we have chosen a different path. This is the nature of our humanity. It's an inherent flaw within our way of thinking that companies and religious groups love to exploit. Want nothing, have nothing, take nothing, none... except for our album »Vignette«, you should totally buy a copy."

02. Erasing Contrast (4:49)

04. This Creature Will Haunt Us Forever (1:38)
05. Cataclysm (4:59)
06. Terminus (6:53)

09. Vignette (12:12)



»Vignette« is now available for pre-order and you can get the physical editions of the new album here: http://nblast.de/LFTCVignette

LETTERS FROM THE COLONY build upon the intersection between perfection and ordered chaos; the unbridled joy of experimentation and virtuosic instrument mastery and create their new niche compartment of technically challenging extreme metal. They deliver highly complex songs full of unbound aggression and progressive structures in the vein of MESHUGGAH, OPETH or GOJIRA and also do not shy away from playing saxophone with a guitar or sampling the call of a deer into a track!
