Filippo Rosati & Simen Sandnes premiere brand new single Eclipse

Filippo Rosati & Simen Sandnes premiere brand new single Eclipse

Frequent collaborators Filippo Rosati (Omega Zero) and Simen Sandnes (Arkentype, Shining NO), teamed up again for the release of their new single “Eclipse”, which will be out everywhere on January 4th 2023. This new single is self-released and distributed. The two artists recorded between June and October of 2022 at their own studios.
This new song, mixed and mastered by Karim Sinno at The Audioloft, is packed with metric modulations, catchy melodies and a good amount of progressive witchcraft.

Guitarist Filippo Rosati about “Eclipse”:

I was inspired by Simen’s drum grooves to lay down the entire song structure. People can expect both a emotionally driven song and a piece full of music trickeries.

Simen Sandnes adds:

This song was based on “Song 1” from my groove pack with GGD, and Filippo took the song in a really great direction. I am thrilled to showcase a bit more of the technical side of drumming I have been working on for some time, as well some fun metric modulation, all while serving what is important: the music.

Listen to “Eclipse” today already, one day ahead of its general digital release with this exclusive premiere, right here on The Progspace:
