The Brazilian modern Thrash/Death Metal band SIRIUN was created to move the national extreme metal scene with an audacious proposal. The band debuts the new single “Deep Water Flow”, which arrives accompanied by a video clip with cinematographic projections, filmed in Rio de Janeiro, produced by the band, directed by Samyr Novelli and edited by Samyr Novelli and Felipe Sales.
The band brings a furious and exciting fusion with varied creative ideas within extreme metal, and the new single “Deep Water Flow” is a call from the unconscious, with a heavy, daring and chaotic proposal, along with the aggressive and very technical sound.
“The protagonist is being dragged by a spiral into deep waters that symbolize the depths of his unconscious. It is the summary of the alchemical journey described in the album, in which the neophyte protagonist, receives the call, is dredged into his own darkness, encounters the most primitive material of his essence and is thus initiated into the mysteries of existence”, comments the band.
This is a question calling out from within the sound of Brazilian metallers SIRIUN, a query bound in the inescapable invitation of craft, imagination, and experimentation and in no greater temptation than within the band’s new album, ‘Psychonaut’.
As proven by their richly acclaimed debut album, ‘In Chaos We Trust’, the Rio de Janeiro hailing outfit weave cyclones of extreme and progressive melded metal, a force relishing physical and emotional turbulence as keenly as evocative intimation and imagination spun enterprise. SIRIUN are also a band which also demands of themselves that they persistently explore and push their invention, an evolution set to voraciously erupt within ‘Psychonaut’.
Formed by guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Alexandre Castellan, Siriun emerged in 2014 and immediately revealed their vision of merging modern, brutal and progressive metal in a landscape of provocatively lyrical and melodically intense exploration. Featuring long-time friend in bassist Hugo Machado and rhythmic tour-de-force, drummer Kevin Talley (Six Feet Under, Daath, Feared, Suffocation, DevilDriver, BattleCross), ‘In Chaos We Trust’ commanded fresh and eager attention far beyond their homeland; with ‘Psychonaut’ they are now simply demanding it.
Taking an enforced break due to the pandemic, SIRIUN returned with a new line-up seeing guitarist Djavan Fernandes and bassist Marcos Medeiros alongside Castellan and long-time band member in drummer Braulio Drumond; a union of fresh and adventurous musicianship and invention as key to the new vision and imagination of sound as maturity in songwriting and that passion in breaking new ground.
In a world where tempestuousness seems to lace every day, there is a superstorm of enlivening spirit, explosive craft and ravening imagination upon it and it goes by the names of SIRIUN and ‘Psychonaut.’
