IRIST - release new track 'Surging Ablaze'!
IRIST release a mesmerizing new track titled 'Surging Ablaze', taken from their forthcoming EP Gloria, out on September 16th via Nuclear Blast Records. 'Surging Ablaze' sees the nascent post-metallers hit a new stride, transcending our mortal coil with the ebb and flow of slow-burn melody, and sludgy, crushing atmospherics.
Vocalist Rodrigo Carvalho stated, "Surging Ablaze is a song about the contemplative journey, and meditative states, one experiences when getting to the other side of a difficult situation. On top of a beautiful lead for the chorus, Pablo wrote an insanely heavy riff towards the end of the song that definitely sticks to you. This is a rhythmically more measured song for us, and the fact that we were able to add some lyrics in Portuguese makes it even more unique."
