EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Tiberius – “Dissipate”

Has this last week left you with your face still attached to your head? Well, hope you’re not too fond of it staying there because it may very well melt off with today’s exclusive premiere. Allow us to introduce you to Tiberius, a progressive metal band hailing from Edinburgh, Scotland. The band is young, but they already have a couple EPs to their name, and a Best Metal Act accolade bestowed upon them from the 2017 Scottish Alternative Music Awards. Today, we are happy to premiere their latest single and accompanying video, “Dissipate”!

Those riffs though. Tiberius is not shy in showing some heart. Every member is energetic and lively, not the least of whom is Grant Barclay who is quite animated with almost Shakespearean dramatics and presence. His voice is very clean and emotive, really propelling the song forward while also riding the instrumentation with silky vocal melodies. We’re treated to a double axe barrage by Chris Foster and Jahan Tabrizi. Heavy and melodic, their contributions range from high flying licks to technical fretwork that hinges on proggy, math rock influence. And that’s where the bass comes in. Commanded by Ryan Anderson, the bass bounces and grooves quite audibly throughout (you know that’s my favorite). Nick Kelly’s drums never relent, gluing the whole track together with staggered double-bass kicks and snappy fills. In short: this song slays. “Dissipate” will do anything but, sticking in your ears for hours after hearing it!

This neat track is slated to be on Tiberius‘ debut album. Not many details have been revealed yet, but they are aiming for an early 2019 release date. Writing for the untitled album is nearing completion as we speak, but they’ll have to split their time between that and a short April tour through the UK along with some yet-unannounced summer dates. I, for one, am quite interested to see where they go from here. Wonderful track, wonderful band!
