The Epic Power Metal force that is ARRAYAN PATH returns with the band's 8th full-length, a follow-up to 2018's double-disc album „Archegonoi“.
The new ARRAYAN PATH album is much heavier than its predecessor and more on the „up-tempo“ scale, while at the same time maintaining all the characteristics and trademarks that make up the unmistakable style and sound of ARRAYAN PATH.
Nicholas Leptos, the band's driving force (also current vocalist of legendary WARLORD) comments: „We worried less about doing something 'out of the ordinary' and more about writing good melodic metal songs. There was also more collaboration between the band members, maybe more than ever before!“
Lyric-wise, even though the new album is not a concept album, it does have a common theme running among the songs, one that deals with human nature as it has developed through the ages. For this reason the album is „divided“ into 3 parts, with each part made up of 3 songs: The Past, The Present and The Future.
Even though the subject matter might seem varied between songs, as already mentioned there is a central theme that revolves around human reaction and response; from the destruction of our planet, to people's quarrels regarding the pandemic, life, death, religion and mourning; and of course, somewhere in all that, the band's favorite subject since forever: mythology!
