Italian post-black metal unit SVNTH will release their third full-length, Spring In Blue, via Transcending Records this August.
In advance of the record’s release, SVNTH issued a video for the track “Wings Of The Ark” earlier this year.
Captured by Colin Marston at Menegroth, the Thousand Caves (Dysrhythmia, Behold… The Arctopus, Cleric) in Queens, New York, SVNTH’s Spring In Blue delivers six tracks.
Fusing atmospheric black metal eruptions with the more solid structured roots of 70s class rock and 90s shoegaze, Spring In Blue is a soundtrack to one’s deepest emotions.
An analysis of human existence, the record explores themes of childhood loss and weathering situations far bigger than ourselves.
“Spring In Blue has been recorded live in studio and even in terms of sound, it shows a more organic and solid production, mixing ecstatic heavy and fast sections with tragic and melancholic slow moments,” bassist/vocalist Rodolfo Ciuffo says.
“It is the perfect musical accompaniment for a concept that explores themes such as death, existential philosophy, and modern technology’s consequences on man.
“The song in particular explores the themes of childhood loss, the hardness of dealing with life’s obstacles in early ages, and the consequent feeling of abandonment.
“It sees the wonderful participation of Marco Soellner from Klimt 1918 on clean, lead vocals and ethereal backing singing giving the song a very special emotional feeling and a dreamy Cocteau Twins-ish touch.”
The video has been directed by Francesco Maria Pepe and filmed in New York on September 2019 during the recording sessions.
