Metal Mind Productions will release the fifth full-length album by OSADA VIDA, one of the most interesting Polish bands on the rock/metal scene. Their new, yet untitled material will be released in October.
Their highly acclaimed previous album “Particles” made the band work even harder on the follow-up material. In the meantime, the band have undergone a few line-up changes: Bartek Bereska (guitar) was replaced by Janek Mitoraj and drummer Adam Podzimski – by Marek Romanowski.
Łukasz Lisiak (bass guitar) comments on the changes and their impact on the new album:
“I think, the new album is a continuation of a certain road, the album ‘Particles’ being its last stop. Certainly, the approach to composing used on the album ‘Particles’ was also used while writing songs for the new album – the structure of songs is more simple, as we were trying to avoid excessive complexity. We are using Marek Majewski’s talent as much as possible, so finally we no longer have to hide or shorten the vocal parts. At the same time, however, we are still amusing ourselves with all those little twisted, very atmospheric parts known from our previous releases. Our new guitarist, Janek Mitoraj, has a great musical sense and equally excellent guitar skills, which allows us to mix new ideas with ‘Osada Vida’ style. Our newest member, drummer Marek Romanowski, is a musician who knows exactly how to play with rhythm. He also has a great sense of humor, and sense of humor is a must in Osada Vida team. You can therefore expect us to develop and consolidate the ideas first introduced on the ‘Particles’ album, though there still will be place for interesting and engrossing passages, which those fans who liked them so much on our previous releases came to expect.”
At the end of July, the band entered MaQ Records studio to record rhythm section parts. A short movie uploaded on Metal Mind Productions’ official YouTube channel introduces their new drummer Marek Romanowski. You can watch the clip below:
