FINLAND'S SIMULACRUM ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM 'GENESIS'
Simulacrum is an exciting progressive metal band hailing from one of most fruitful countries for metal music in the world, Finland. The band will release their third album overall, “Genesis” on February 12, 2021. The album is a stunningly strong statement for the progressive metal world with hard hitting melodic progressive metal paying homage to the great prog bands of the ‘70s without forgetting to blend in the best elements of the genre’s current direction. Fans can get their first taste of the album with today's premiere of the new single and video, 'Nothing Remains’.
“The song 'Nothing Remains' is a hard hitting, high tempo progressive metal song I wrote for this album. I tried to honour some of my early musical influences, like Metallica, Megadeth, and Slayer when I wrote this tune and you can hear this in some of the chunking riffs and the infernal thrash metal segment that is in between the keyboard and guitar solo. The band did a top notch performance for this song, so we wanted to make a music video for it. The music video is almost like a female Robocop oriented story of a soldier who signs up for cybernetic body augmentation and loses a part of her humanity with every upgrade, until almost nothing remains... hence the name of the song. At the end of the video you can see the spark of humanity that is left in her, when she spares the life of the rebel fighter. We hope you all enjoy this single as much as we enjoyed making it!" says Christian “Chrism” Pulkkinen, the band's keyboardist and founder.
