After their recent comeback with the announcement of a new EP and the great results from the launch of their first single ‘Osservati’, THAEIA raise the bar again with their new video for ‘Feather’.
As a natural follow up to the concept of their EP ‘Datura Metel’, in ‘Feather‘ you can feel both pain and catharsis: it’s intense stuff, both sonically and in emotional clout. Sometimes emotions can be heavier than any barre chord. The addictive nature of their style, made of powerful guitar-work and airy vocals, will hunt you.
The video is directed by Daniele Zed Berretta, and available here:
The band adds: “We tried to return all the agony contained in “Datura Metel vol.I” in this second single: “Feather”. This is the part of the concept album which describes all the pain we can feel in our solitude, just before becoming aware of our true self. We suffocate in ourselves, in the awareness of being weak and passive towards the world, especially within certain aspects imposed by modern society. We deal with the dark side of our psyche, understanding the fears and weaknesses. We realize our present, past, and future have been decided and built by others. The sudden realization of this generates desperation and, like a punch to your face, a deep desire for redemption and revenge.”
Recorded in Rome by Marco Mantovani at Forward Studio and mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling studios (Korn, Deftones, ecc ecc), the new EP ‘Datura Metel’ is out May 28, 2021.
Roma’s alt/prog metal five-piece, THAEIA, have teamed up with Metal Shock Finland to premiere, for Nordic territory, their first single and video ‘Osservati‘, taken from their upcoming EP ‘Datura Metel Vol I‘.
THAEIA are back! The Roman Alt/Prog Metal five-piece, after their debut in 2017 with the already promising ‘Yugen’, are back on the scene with their new EP ‘Datura Metel Vol I’, recorded and produced by Marco Mantovani at Forward studio, and mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling studios (Korn, Deftones). The release, out on May 28th, contains all the trademarks of the band but elevated, to effortlessly push the boundaries of their sound: groove ridden riffs brought by the double addition to the line-up of guitarists Federico Tiero and Francesco Capuani, mixed with abrasive growls quickly followed by soaring vocals, adding nu-metal vibes to the sound palette.
The addictive nature of their style has been strengthened through a dedicated live activity that has brought them to renowned stages such as Euroblast or supporting acts like Protest the Hero between the others.
The band is now ready to release their first single ‘Osservati’ together with an official video here:
The singer Jacopo ‘JP’ Pesciarelli adds: “Datura Metel is our comeback, our personal rebirth through a long introspective journey. We have felt the pain by going deep and undertaking a path towards a new life. But we had to cry in despair and open the things up in our souls to finally set ourselves free. Datura Metel tells all of these steps and attracts anybody like a magnetic field. Who is ready to listen will be hit by this healing energy, dive into this journey and listen to the inner demons talking and asking you if this is really the life you asked for. Just like we did starting right from ‘ OSSERVATI’ “
