Russian metal duo Neorhythm is set to release it’s newest album, Terrastory, on March 20. Self-released, the album features eleven tracks of dark, progressive groove. Terrastory is a concept album with themes covering the four and a half billion year history of planet Earth.
The band has released a video for the first single from the album, FIght for FIre – watch it below!
The duo elaborates on the concepts behind Terrastory: “Terrastory is a conceptual album that reviews and describes the history of planet Earth from the origin of the star to the present day, the history and evolution of Mankind and Civilisations, and even tries to look into the future. With our new songs, we penetrated the temporal space from the Archean Eon to Art Nouveau, explored various cultures and tried to convey not only lyrically, but also musically the development of our father’s home, from the protobacterial world to perfect technological progress. For history is a treasury of human deeds, a witness to the past, an example and a lesson for the present and a warning for the future.”
Terrastory Track Listing:
