Recent The Artisan Era signees STORTREGN are proud to announce the upcoming release of their fifth full-length, Impermanence. Set for release on March 12th via The Artisan Era. Famed Italian painter Paolo Girardi (Power Trip, Artificial Brain, Chthe’ilist) lends his masterful touch to the fantastic artwork adorning Impermanence. Recorded, mixing and mastering was handled at Conatus Studio, Switzerland by Vladimir Cochet (Mirrorthrone, Weeping Birth).
Active since 2006, the Geneva-Switzerland-based act has released four albums and an EP to date which has garnered worldwide praise from music writers and extreme metal fans alike. Their most recent prior album, 2018’s Emptiness Fills the Void, boosted the band’s status and fanbase to new levels. Now the time has come for the group to take their next leap forward, a sentiment Impermanence embodies and embraces with unorthodox yet graceful conviction from start to finish.
Impermanence draws inspiration from a large array of influences including progressive tech-death to 90’s Swedish black metal, old-school heavy metal, and jazz in order to craft a unique style of melodic black metal intertwined with a variety of death metal influences.
Stortregn – Impermanence is highly recommended for fans of bands such as Obscura, Opeth, Inferi, Dissection.
The band partnered with Everything Is Noise today to premiere “Multilayered Chaos”.
Everything is Noise comments
“Although they are new to me, Switzerland’s Stortregn are well versed at creating engaging and intense tech death that steers clear of the traps many other bands fall into. The songs possess natural hooks and fascinating sections that separate them greatly from other death metal clichés.”
