Alizarin premieres Heirloom

L.A. prog metallers Alizarin premiere their new single and video ‘Heirloom‘ from their upcoming album “The Last Semblance” out on July 10 2020.

Alizarin released their first full-length album “Cast Zenith” in 2018 and are ready to release their new album “The Last Semblance”. Unlike their strictly instrumental debut record, this sophomore release features prominent vocals throughout. Rich harmonies and baritone resonance from Kay’s voice add a new dimension to the music, allowing the band’s sound to expand to truly uncharted territory.

About Heirloom the band comments: “This song was clearly the choice for the final single from this album. It is one of the most heavy-hitting, catchy, and melodic tunes that also captures many of the approaches we incorporate. ‘Heirloom‘ almost steps into power metal territory, while still holding a firm footing in groove-oriented progressive metal. Thematically, the song considers the timeline of humanity and our intellectual evolution. It looks at humans as emotionally charged and proud “adolescents” of sorts on this timeline, with a long way to go to find a more harmonious existence, if that time ever arrives.

The new album covers a wide spectrum of sonic landscapes and emphasizes the melodic journey over deliberate technique. The compositions on the record focus on a balance of each instrument, with less of an emphasis on the domination of guitar solos and a greater exploration of what each musician is capable of. The album draws influence from such groups as Porcupine Tree, Haken, Alice in Chains, Opeth, Portishead, and many more. The results are a sound that is challenging to define, pensive, and often at the crossroads of melody and dissonance.
