Swedish up-and coming-progressive metal act Letters From The Colony is back with new music! After releasing their very first music video for their single “Erasing Contrast” in the end of 2017, we now got a second teaser for their upcoming record Vignette. Even though they are still quite unknown to the scene, they managed to grab the attention of Nuclear Blast and sign a deal with them! Fun fact: Peter Tägtgren of Pain and Hypocrisy lived in the same street as their songwriter and guitarist Sebastian, and actually paved the road for them.

“Terminus” is a very heavy song that might remind you of Gojira in some parts. This could be based on the fact that the French metal titans are listed as one of Letters From The Colony‘s main influences. As Johan, their guitarist, stated in a private chat, they felt heavily influenced by them, and (for him personally) somehow created something like a tribute song with “Terminus”. The song starts off with a Meshuggah-ish break section that might satisfy all those in need of a heavy hitter immediately. At about 3:47 minutes of runtime, the possibly most Gojira-esque part kicks in, and I just know you will love the mixture that this track delivers!
By the way:
Vignette was mastered by none else than Jens Bogren, who brought the common clean mix that is as worthy as the music to the table. The accompanying video comes with a lot of quotes by known and acclaimed bands and musicians (Cradle Of Filth, Scar Symmetry, Ola Englund, and more) describing how they feel about Letters From The Colony, but it also shows the song’s lyrics over the record’s artwork at times.
Make sure to follow Letters From The Colony on Facebook and pre-order Vignette here. I used some information from an interview in the current Fuze Magazine (#68). Since I reviewed the record, I can tell you that it will be worth every penny. Vignette drops February 16th via Nuclear Blast.
