Blame Zeus continues to show growth and expansion with their latest album ‘Seethe‘. Taking their sound and growing their arsenal will give this band longevity and quite frankly I hope their music is around for a long time. Here’s what the band had to say about their new album ‘Seethe‘:
Our new upcoming album will still possess BZ’s genome, but it will bring some fresh features you’ve never seen in our work. It will be heavier, darker, more progressive, and it will make the fans submerge in a turmoil of strong feelings. Fans will certainly feel our same old vibe in the songs, but recognize it has been upgraded, with a more modern sound. We worked freely, with no strings attached, using new elements, making everything sound rhythmically, harmonically and melodically intertwined. We have certainly not made things easier to ourselves, and had to evolve technically to be able to play and sing these new songs.
and vocalist Sandra Oliveira also adds:
‘SEETHE’ could very well be considered a conceptual album because the main theme of the songs is unexpressed anger, silent pain transformed into poetry. Its contradictory nature is the liberation of the soul, it’s letting go of that lump on your throat when you have something to say. Each song speaks of a particular situation where the silence and the numbness become a vehicle for action and freedom or even utmost despair.
“Polite Society” has certainly gotten in the way of self expression and as a result has caused a lot of harm. The build up of all that negative energy has led to atrocities. We should really be teaching and embracing the expression of those emotions for our own mental health as well as for the benefit of all humankind. I love the approach the band took with this topic.
