Adeia – “Burning Skies” (Song Premiere)

Holland’s Adeia juxtapose opposite sounds in rapid succession. Growls give way to gothic crooning. A violin and cello play melodies over chugga-chugga guitar.

Other bands have done this before, and more do so all the time, emboldened by the success of bands like Between the Buried and Me and Opeth (who probably did this best, but refuse to do so now).

Most of these new bands fail, but Adeia succeed. They get the details right: Their guitars sound dry and crunchy, neither vocal style seems dependent on studio touch-ups. In fact Franc Timmerman’s curdling barks pull the rest of the music into the world of Enslaved nostalgia. While evoking other bands is not as good as conjuring entirely new emotions in a listener, it’s better to remind people of great groups such as Enslaved and their peers.

Adeia’s second record, Serenity, will be released independently on September 2. They’ve already released a video for the second song on that album, “Architect,” which you can view below. First listen to the opener, “Burning Skies.”
