The new album, unlike its predecessor, is about hope and rebirth. In Screaming Eyes the eyes are the soul’s mirror and, the metal soul of this record screams strongly for a revenge from life. The life of an ordinary human being who had a dark period, a veil of shadow on his existence that he has now accepted, understood and against which he fights deciding to get up again.
In fact, the album begins with Your Death (Is My Life), in which the killing of the voracious worm within oneself takes place in order to live again. It's an opening song that kicks the past and shows the will to fight.
The previous two singles Dragonfly and Against Myself respectively illustrate how the protagonist is driven to take all the strength he has to get back up and take advantage of his new life, and how easy it is to fall back into the abyss with a second that is enough to erase all efforts.
Lore, guitarist of the band, says:
"At the beginning of 2020 I was unmotivated, my fixed thought was to break up the band. To stop our story with one last tour and write the word 'end' during the last concert that would crown our 20th anniversary. During the first lockdown though, I started writing new songs and when I played the demos to the guys, I saw a light in their eyes that I hadn't seen in a long time. Our hearts went back to screaming all at once! A year later we signed a contract with Massacre Records and recorded a new album, Screaming Eyes, life never ceases to surprise you!"
Ghebro, vocalist, adds:
"For the first time we let about thirty fans listen to the entire album in preview and asked them to vote on what their three favorite songs were. We didn't expect the results that came out but we decided to trust them and turn the choices into the singles that anticipated the album release. We are very happy with the response we are getting."
Screaming Eyes represents the journey of all the people who are tired of suffering and being sick, who decide to fight back and start living again by finding the right balance within themselves.
For the first time, each member of the band has laid bare thanks to the art of metal by writing at least one song about a particularly difficult moment of his life that needed to be faced, processed and overcome.
The band's drummer Matt states:
"Screaming Eyes is a powerful record that has given us a lot of energy over the past few months in the recording process. We can't wait to be able to play it live!".
Miles, bassist, adds: "I'm really proud to be a part of this awesomeness!".
The cover of "Say Just Words" of Paradise Lost, 25 years after its release, also fits perfectly in a speech about courage and the ability to understand human being and bring him to the right path, even if sometimes the efforts are in vain.
